happy 4th of july weekend friends!! just as you might expect, ghtr will be taking monday off to celebrate along with you. but first! let’s talk about some ways to celebrate the holiday!

4th of july cookout for vegetarians

{red white and blue paper drinking straws}

just as many of you will, the forkner fam will be grilling out for this 4th of july as well. that’s right, the vegans will be having a cookout! to most, this sounds boring, tasteless or just plain silly. but, even if you’re not a veg-head, you might have some coming to your party. to the rescue today? a list of barbecue friendly ideas for your vegetarian friends.

vegetarian grilling ideas

- homemade black bean burgers (this is my favorite recipe)

- grilled veggies (like eggplant, sweet potatoes, zucchini, onions, peppers and pineapple)

- corn on the cob

- boca burgers or other vegan hotdogs/burgers you can find at your local health food store

- grilled tofu (here’s a great recipe)

- pasta salads

- homemade frozen juice popsicles

- vegetarian grilled pizza (leave off the cheese for vegans)

do you have any favorite vegetarian or vegan grilling or cook out ideas? please share! i’ll try to add them to our list. xox, bonnie

4th of july diy projects

hello, lovelies! i wanted to make some time this week to do a 4th of july project of my own, but time is slipping away from me. so, i decided to do a little roundup of diy projects from around the blogosphere! if you’re planning on having a little 4th of july get together, i think one of these projects would make your celebration all the more special. are you planning any special projects of your own?

clockwise: 4th of july cupcake project from style me pretty, diy 4th of july party set from twig & thistle, cobbler’s stand candle holder from design*sponge, diy tin can plants from ruffled, 4th of july diy salsa label from camille styles,

hi lovelies! just wanted to pop in to say hello!  did you have a happy 4th of july?  we had a picnic up on the roof and watched the fireworks from there.  the weather was perfect, the food was wonderful and our tiny town even had a pretty impressive fireworks show!  i always give my girls our leftover watermelon rind (it’s their most favorite treat).  this is odessa, caught in the act (below).

i also wanted to draw your attention to a new section of the blog, our eat local page! here you’ll find the seasonal veggie guides, all of our seasonal recipes and a resource page on why we should eat local in the first place.  you’ll be able to reference it anytime via the pull down menu in the header up top.   below is the latest summer veggie guide:

see you tomorrow! xo, bonnie
