Fourth of July

It’s the weekend before the holiday, and I am in menu planning mode. My “down time” on the weekends usually includes not only the research and menu planning, but organizing shopping list(s) for the grocery store and wholesale club. I am in heaven with cooking shows on TV, a laptop, and surrounded by cook books!

We are having about 15 people this year for the 4th, and I like to include some of the “basics,” along with a few surprises for them. Here’s what I am planning:


Oven BBQ Chicken

Bud’s Potato Salad

Cole Slaw – you choose:

Macaroni and Cheese

Baked Beans

Grandma Dorothy’s Strawberry Cake

Red, White & Blue Jello Cake

There is a lot to planning and preparing your menu, so I like to keep myself organized in the process. Here are some basics and tips:
