4th Of July

It’s so close to the 4th of July and I am so excited! This has got to be my most favorite holiday! I love having my family and friends get together at the lake to play games, go boating, swimming and enjoying all day in the hot sun!! The best part is at the end of the night getting on the pontoon and heading down to the bay for a show of the most beautiful fireworks under the stars. You couldn’t ask for a better summer. This year I am way ahead of the game and have my menu planned for the 4th of July and I just have to share it with you.

This year I want to make it easy for me since I am the head cook at our event! It’s going to be Four Brothers Burgers all the way. They have so many flavors including Bacon and Cheddar Burger, Bleu Cheese Burger, Buffalo Bleu, Mushroom and Swiss and Hot Pepper Burgers and they are all so yummy. Just pick up your favorite flavor at anyone of our Meat Departments.

Every good get together, especially if it’s a hot day, needs some refreshing fruit. This recipe is easy to prep ahead of time if needed! 

Mixed Berry Salad

 

While the burgers are on the grill and the salad is in the fridge, there’s no better way to relax and enjoy the sunshine than with a nice tropical drink. Here’s a new favorite of mine! It’s called Island Living, and trust me, once you have a taste of this, you’ll feel like you’re on an island!

Now you can’t forget dessert on the 4th of the July and I love to serve something that ties in with the holiday. We have a new Cream Cake flavor that has just arrived in our Bakery Departments and it’s so decedent and scrumptious you just have to check it out. It will be perfect for your holiday table. It has beautiful fresh blueberries sprinkled all over the top and drizzled with icing. On the inside it has those large tart cranberries that put this dessert over the top. 

This is a fun celebration and it’s time to enjoy these summer months so make sure you are serving something easy so you can have fun in the sun! Have a safe and Happy 4th of July!!!

How It’s Made – Four Brother’s Maple Syrup

We headed over to Bowlus, MN to spend some time at the Syrup Ranch. Mike owns and operates the Syrup Ranch right in his backyard.

As Winter comes to an end, that’s when Mike goes to work. Luckily, he had a little time to show us around! Have you ever wondered how pure maple syrup is made? Mike tells us all about how he started his company as well as how he makes his award winning syrup! 

We’re proud to support local businesses and even more proud to have Four Brother’s Syrup available in all of our stores. Try it today!
