Mac and Cheese and a New Friend

 I made a new friend on my travels. His name is Wrinkles.

 He is this very sweet doggie.

 We hit it off right away by playing a trivia game and telling jokes. Later, we are going to share donuts.

 We will be friends forever. BFF = Best Furry Friends

Today is also National Macaroni and Cheese Day. I ordered some from a restaurant and it came with happy face potatoes.

 Since I did order the kids version, it was very much like the stuff that comes out of the blue box. But that is okay because I really like that kind.

I gobbled up about half of it because I saved room for those donuts I promised Wrinkles I would share with him.

Well, it is donut time!

World Chocolate Day

 World Chocolate Day is celebrated every year on July 7th.
 This is a very important holiday because I like chocolate so much.

 M&Ms are great because they are small coins and they don't melt. You can use them as ice cream toppings and in cookies and brownies.

 Toblerone is delicious. I like that you can break up the triangle into small bits. I have seen gigantic ones in the past and haven't been able to find any. I think that would make a great gift - a Toblerone that is bigger than I am.

Delicious happiness in a triangular, foil-wrapped package.

Is your favorite on the list of the most popular chocolates in America?

Stars and Stripes and Food

 For this July 4th, I wanted to get themed snacks. Well that is a thing I always do. So I found red, white, and blue M&M's, and these tiny cupcakes. I added the flags to give it that extra cute touch.

 I served shrimp cocktail.

 I added this shiny table decoration that has stars on it. It even has American flag stars. It is very festive.

 I had stars in a variety of sizes that I used to spread out on the table to give it extra flair.

 There were sugar snap peas and these cherries.

 And I also served crackers that people could use for dipping.

 Spinach dip is always popular, and I put out some baba ganosh, too.

 And a very American snack of tater tots. I threw them in the air fryer and that was it.

We didn't watch any patriotic movies, but we did start a Stranger Things 3 marathon.

And once Independence Day is over, I focus on the next big holiday: HALLOWEEN.
