Flag Day Recipes

Tomorrow is Flag Day. Flag Day recognizes the June day in 1777 when the Continental Congress adopted the “Stars and Stripes” as the official flag of the United States. Flag Day is always June 14th.

To prepare for Flag Day tomorrow I suggest making these recipes:

She’s a Grand Old Lasagna
You will need:
Your favorite lasagna recipe
Mozerella cheese
Marinara sauce
Black olives, chopped
Aluminum foil
Instructions:
Start by preparing your favorite lasagna recipe in a 9- by 13-inch pan.
Be sure to finish with a top layer of cheese to create the background for the flag.
Just before serving, brush on stripes of marinara sauce.
In the top left corner, add a field of chopped black olive stars.

Red, White, and Blue Snacks
Make one of these patriotic snacks for the children to enjoy.
1. Place strawberries and blueberries in a small bowl and add a dollop of whipped topping.
2. Use a cookie cutter to cut a star shape out of a slice of bread. Spread on softened cream cheese, and top with strawberry slices and blueberries.

  1. I told the kids I'd be making this for dinner tomorrow for Flag Day and they said "You are way too much into holidays all the time!" But they are happy about it. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I did it but I bought a frozen lasagna and I'm adding extra cheese. Then will decorate after it's cooked. ๐Ÿ™‚
