Now, the fourth of July is Friday, and I’m still working on the menu…I know I want pork shish-ka-bobs, deviled eggs, pasta salad, and some type of slaw, but I can’t put my finger on what kind of dessert I want. A berry trifle? Cherry pie? Granitas? Help!
I do know what I’m making tonight, though…Sweet chile chicken sliders with Sriracha coleslaw. Recipe coming soon, so stay tuned!
