Christmas Recap and Prawn Cocktail

DSC_0709The holiday season was SO busy for us, but I’m guessing that statement is not unique to me.  I hope you all have had a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!  I know I was so spoiled with not one, not two, but THREE Christmases!  How does a girl get so lucky?  I had one with my family in November in the US, one with just my better half in the middle of December in Perth and a third with his family on Christmas in Melbourne.  It was a whirlwind of food and family and presents too!

Fourth of July Series part 1 ~ Lynchburg Lemonade Cocktail

Hello there!  Today I’m kicking off a mini series in honor of the Fourth of July (insert fireworks here; boom! pow! ooooo! ahhhh!).

Whether you are headed to a big party, the park for a picnic, or just having a small gathering at your own place, the four recipes I offer to you over the next few days will help make your Independence Day celebration delicious.  The idea is that you can make these ahead of time and at the start of the party.  They will keep and still be enjoyable as they come to room temperature so you too can enjoy the holiday!  Serve these four for a complete party or add to it crudites, chips and dips and a green salad and you have the ultimate (and low maintenance) spread.  Additionally, these recipes can easily be doubled or halved to make just the right amount for your shindig.Lynchburg Lemonade ~ Living the Savory Life
