4th of July at the Gilbert's Cabin

We decided to have an old fashioned BBQ to celebrate America's birthday.  I thought it would be fun to decorate with 4th of July picnic-style red, white, and blue. It's amazing how many cheesy decorations are out there! I threw some glow bracelets on the table for fun.

The wine competition was a bottle of red under $15. It was a lot of fun trying them all :)

Guacamole with Quinoa & Black Bean Tortilla Chips, and Sliced Radishes
Olive Cheese Spread with Raincoast Crisps

Crunchy Veggies & Kale Salad with Poppyseed Dressing
Corn on the Cob with Chili-Lime Sauce
Hebrew National Dogs with Spicy Mustard Dip
Barbecue Chicken with Citrus Onion Sauce

Mom's Strawberry Shortcake
(Buttermilk Biscuits, Vanilla Bean Ice Cream, and Fresh Strawberries)

The Wades won the cheap wine competition with a delicious Apothic Crush. The Shetlers came in second with Soban Estate Rocky Top Zin. We finished with Predator.
