July 4 Menu: Cozy Mystery Style!

Death on a PlatterIt’s almost Independence Day, if you’re here in the U.S. with us. And what better way to celebrate Independence Slay — than with murder? Because we appreciate you, fellow booklovers, we’ve created a menu for you to trot out at your weekend BBQ that’s Ripped from the Pages of some cozy mysteries — should you dare.

As your guests arrive, why not offer them some Death on a Platter, maybe some As Gouda as Dead? It’s also always nice to have some Murder Uncorked for those who like to head straight to the bar (like us). For those who abstain, consider preparing some Sweet Tea Revenge. You want your guests to be comfortable, especially if there’s Murder in the Forecast.  

For your main course may we suggest serving Crime Rib or Fillet of Murder? For a side,Crime Rib it’s hard to go wrong with Macaroni and Freeze. And always remember to have A Second Helping of Murder, though Murder Can Spoil Your Appetite. Or so we’ve heard.

And don’t forget about dessert, or else you’ll be In Hot Water with your guests. How about some Oh Say Can You Fudgeseems holiday appropriate. Of course, Death of a Tart also sounds intriguing.

If you make it to the end of the meal, congratulations! You’ll live to Fry Another Day.
