Happy 4th of July!!

Summer has officially arrived!!! All of us in the community look forward to the start of summer because the pool is open, fun outdoor events such as the ice cream social and Fourth of July parties are coming up, and so many beautiful colors are out in full bloom.  We mark the start of summer with our annual pool party and picnic.   Everybody gathers in the community building or out by the pool and we relax and enjoy the camaraderie along with some traditional summer fare. 
It is also fun because we bring our favorite summer dishes to share with our neighbors and try new and exciting dishes as well. I am always looking for a new dish to bring to summer picnics because there are always the tried and true macaroni & potato salads, fruit dishes, vegetable platters and various chips.  This year I am going to make cupcakes that look like a hamburger! I saw them at my grandson’s birthday party & thought they were a great idea.  So I got to work and created my masterpiece.  They were a huge success and everyone who ate them asked for the recipe, so I am going to share the recipe and picture for you to create for your summer get together. The recipe is from Duncan Hines, just click on the link: Duncan Hines Hamburger Cupcakes.

I almost forgot my other favorite part of the July 4th celebrations is watching the great fireworks display in town.  It really makes me feel like a kid again!

Have a Happy & Safe July 4th from your fellow Jensen community residents!
