Fireworks and Food
|Van Nuys Family Picnic, Valley Times, 1962|
Yup! It's 4th of July weekend! Larry and I will be attending a bunch o' backyard parties this weekend for some outdoor fun. Supposedly, fireworks are illegal in the City of Los Angeles. Hah! So, how come I've been hearing firecrackers already going off all week long? We plan on viewing a few professional shows across the San Fernando Valley on the 4th from the vantage point of a well-located backyard!
Of course, I'll be bringing food to share to all of these events! I'm still perusing recipes online before I go grocery shopping today. Here are a few possibilities:

What could be more appetizing than this Frozen Salad of Fruit Cocktail and Marshmallows, molded in cans? I MUST find this recipe! I wish this photo was in color so we could see what flavor of Jello she used for this concoction!
Have a wonderful and safe 4th of July celebration, my friends!
