You don’t even want to know how long it took me to do these collages. I’m a bit of a perfectionist (and indecisive) so I spent a wee bit too long agonizing over which pictures to put where. Because clearly it is highly highly important whether the burger or watermelon salad goes in the top left corner. Clearly.

But I snacked on even more watermelon while putting it all together so it’s cool (also probably why I went with the watermelon in the top left). Happy happy dance for my favorite snack of the moment.

So. Anyway. July 4th. It’s rapidly approaching which is just ridiculous. How is it almost July? It was just Christmas for crying out loud! But there’s no stopping this train so it’s time to talk food for the holiday.

Maybe you’re looking for ideas? I got you covered.
