When a good friend told me that there was going to be an online picnic event for the 4th of July, I wanted to be a part of it. I adore picnics! There just aren’t enough opportunities to enjoy three of my favorite things at once: food, friends, and the great outdoors!
I love picnics. This was also a great way to get involved with the blog “Crock-pot Ladies”. They have a lot of great recipes that help make the lives of many busy families a little easier!
This 4th of July, my family will be visiting my friend Jeanine in the mountains. Since it is also the 4th, it is also Jeanine’s birthday and I wanted the menu for our picnic to include two of her favorite foods: Bacon and Chocolate. I also know that we’re probably going to have a crowd at our gathering, so it needed to be something that wasn’t too difficult to make and that would please picnicers of all ages.
I decide to make Buffalo Bacon Snackers with fresh veggies and bleu chevre dip. For dessert, I plan to make Flag Fondue…not very complicated, but very delicious! (I cannot disclose any birthday cake details — that is supposed to be a surprise!)
You’ll find the recipe for the Buffalo Bacon Snackers and Bleu Chevre Spread below. I recommend making extra of the spread and serving it in Individual Edible Dip Bowls.
Be sure to check out tomorrow’s blog too. I’ll be posting pointers for how to make the delicious and beautiful 4th Flag Fondue!
