I get really excited when it gets close to the 4th!! I love this holiday and really love to decorate for it!I get my flags out. I make my list for the foods we will have. This year burgers and dogs. Baked beans and chips. Also a huge fruit salad w/ watermelon,cantaloupe and berries. And for this year I am surprising the fam w/ an Americana Ice cream cake!After dinner we are all heading downtown Nashville for a HUGE fireworks display!We also have plans for a swim party and lunch @ my sister in laws home. I hope you all have a blessed and happy 4th!
Here is my recipe for baked beans:
1 lb ground round
