The 4th of July is in two days. TWO DAYS people. This is the Olympics of grill-outs, the World Cup of picnic food. I have big plans, mostly involving food. Here’s how it goes:
I really want to make this Cajun Shrimp Guacamole from What’s Gaby Cooking?, but only if I’m allowed to do a face plant once it’s done. Otherwise I should probably leave it alone – I’m not good at self control.
I want this and I want it now. Please and thank you.
I’ve had my eye on this recipe from Smitten Kitchen for years. Literally people, years. It’s like if potato salad and egg salad had a wild and crazy night together and ended up with this crazy love child. Maybe I’ve been intimidated, maybe I’ve been worried I would eat the whole bowl and embarrass myself. But I’m going for it now.
I really, really want to believe that I have the technical skills to pull this recipe off, cause they look so pretty. But deep down, I know that is just not true. Le sigh…
Instead, I’ll make more of this. So easy, delicious, and perfect for a hot summer barbeque.
Happy 4th of July to you & yours! What do you have planned?
