Happy 4th! SP and I invited my mother-in-law and her sister over for a BBQ and to help us break in our new patio set.
We decided to make BBQ Chicken using Ina's recipe, except SP couldn't find bone-in chicken so we had to settle for breasts:

My mother-in-law was in charge of the antipasto, which she gets from a local pizzeria. It is phenomenal:

For dessert I made a sheet cake using a Pillsbury Funfetti cake mix and frosting we got especially for the 4th. Notice the stars and stripes sprinkles and the red, white and blue theme. Very patriotic:
