My family comes over early and we eat appetizers and play games then we celebrate all of our summer birthdays and open presents. Then the July 4th portion of the day starts. We eat a big meal , go swimming and shoot off some fireworks. The more time goes by after being diagnosed with celiac disease the easier it is to come up with a whole meal to please everyone because it was not easy in the beginning.
For the appetizers I have buffalo chicken dip with fritos. Mini tacos, and stuffed mini sweet peppers.
For the main meal I made chicken parmesan casserole, peanut butter greek yogurt fruit dip with apples and grapes, tomato cucumber salad. For dessert a heath bar brownie trifle.
Since it is not easy to put the Web address of links on my blog from my cell phone, I have screenshot the recipes and put them in the photos portion.
For the fruit dip it was just a cup of vanilla greek yogurt and 2 Tbsp of pb2 stirred together. Pretty yummy and without all the calories of using regular peanut butter.
Everything I made was naturally gluten free except for the brownies for the trifle which I used a gf Betty crocker mix for and the critics on the chicken parmesan casserole, I used Schar gf Italian bread crumbs.
