I can’t believe 4th of July is this weekend! My oh my, time has definitely been flying by. Due to these unprecedented times we are living in, 4th of July will be very different this year…Jump to Recipe
COVID-19 has really thrown a monkey wrench into 2020. When I think back to the beginning of quarantine where I thought all of this would only last for like a month or two tops… I shake my head and laugh. You can’t blame me though! Who would’ve thought we would go through something like this in our lifetime?
Although the 4th of July will be different, I’m trying to look at the bright side. It’s not smart for people to be out and about- immersed in crowds right now anyways. We need to continue practicing social distancing in an effort to slow/stop the spread of this virus! 2020 isn’t how any of us planned for it to be, but there is always next year and the next year and the next. I just hope & pray Christmas 2020 isn’t affected too badly by this pandemic (because I LOVE Christmas so much) but I’m really not trying to have high expectations. As long as I can put a Christmas tree up and watch all of my favorite Christmas movies, I’ll be just fine.
The good news is that we can still eat well on 4th of July weekend, right? Most of us will fire up the grill for burgers & hotdogs but what about dessert? I have the perfect and easiest dessert recipe. All you need is a skillet and a spoon so you can dig right in! Happy 4th!!
