If you enjoyed your fourth of July, but aren’t quite sure what to do with all your leftovers, this is the post for you…
1. Watermelon Cake. If you have lots of fresh watermelon leftover, cube it up, remove the seeds and mix it up with some white cake mix and other ingredients for this scrumptious summer dessert. Just watch out! It will become a favorite. Click here for the recipe.
2. Bread Pudding. If you have a lot of leftover hamburger and/or hotdog buns, cube them up and use them in place of the bread in your favorite bread pudding recipe. For a delicious recipe option that uses only ingredients you most likely already have on hand, click here.
3. Hamburgers. If you fear you’ll be eating hamburgers for the next week or so, crumble up your leftover patties and use them in place of ground beef in your favorite chili recipe. Then you can freeze the chili in gallon freezer bags and pull them out when you need a quick and tasty meal! For a simple and delicious chili recipe, click here.
4. Coleslaw. Take your leftover coleslaw and turn it into a star ingredient in your next meal with recipes like Easy Moo Shu Veggie Wraps, Asian Style Lettuce Wraps, or Chicken BBQ Sandwiches.
5. Cupcakes. Patriotic cupcakes are all super popular, so if you find that you miraculously have some leftover, use them in place of pound cake in any trifle recipe, like this delicious blueberry trifle option.

Yesterday I highlighted a few great ideas for celebrating July 4th in Sussex County. Here are a few more:
Bethany in Bloom: The festivities begin in Bethany Beach at noon on the 4th with the theme “Wish You Were Here for Bethany in Bloom.” The parade steps off at the intersection of Pennsylvania and Garfield at noon. There will also a be a horseshoe throwing contest and live band with fireworks commencing at dusk.
Tradition at Rehoboth: More than 100,000 people gathered on the boardwalk in Rehoboth and this year is shaping up to be just as great! Head to downtown Rehoboth for the fireworks show at dusk. Local favorite, The Funsters will be performing on the bandstand as well.
Fun in Ocean City: If you want to head out of Sussex, Ocean City for a free concert at 8pm followed by fireworks at 9:30pm downtown on the beach at North Division Street or uptown at 125th Street and Northside Park. For more information call 800-626-2326.

Unbelievably, it’s already July! With the celebration of Independence Day later this week I thought I would spend some time highlighting a few of the best options for celebrating July 4th in Sussex County. Here are a couple of fun options for the family:
