‘Merica Week

Happy Monday friends!  Just because the Kiwi and I are about as far from American food culture as we could be this week, doesn’t mean I’m going to leave you hanging for July 4th!  I would never do that.  In fact, I dub this week America Week.
Kiwi+Peach: America WeekIts true that America is a melting pot–full of foods from tons of different cultures, but I don’t think its fair to say that it lacks a food culture of its own.  I can only speak from a Southerner’s perspective, but there are tons of traditional goodies that create many wonderful food memories.  Who doesn’t have some memory associated with biscuits, apple pie, grits, or sweet tea?  Even the Kiwi, a converted Southerner, loved biscuits so much that he made it his mission to perfect the fluffy, homemade butter biscuit. {He will be sharing his tried and true recipe with y’all on Friday!}

In honor of July 4th and it help you in trying to decided what to make for that cook out, here is a round up of our most ‘Merican recipes.

Blue Cheese Burgers
Green Beans {grilled instead of roasted}
Ice Cream Sandwiches made with Dark Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

Coming up this week:
Strawberry Red, White, and Blue Strawberry Salad
Maple Baked Beans with Apple Salsa
Mini Apple Hand Pies with Salted Caramel
and, of course, Zane’s Biscuits {famous in small circles}

…and here’s some Johnny and June to get your week going. Happy ‘Merica Week y’all!
