What are you cooking for the 4th of July weekend?

Dirtywextraolives | Jul 3, 2014 02:48 PM

I'm still trying to decide, and looking for some ideas to get out of our usual BBQ rut.

Tonight we are going to the beach for fireworks, so I'm packing a picnic with deviled eggs, tuna sandwiches, a ham & salami for my youngest guy, some pieces of fried chicken from the other night. Chips and pickles. Maybe bake some brownies or cookies to take. A huge water bottle full of the goose & lime juice for me, some IPA for the hubby.

But the rest of the weekend, I'm not sure. Bought sliders and also have some jalapeño cheddar dogs for the grill for lunches. Thawing out some bone in chicken breasts for bbq'd chicken one night. Bought a couple of rib eyes for another night. Also have a skirt steak thawing for some tacos, and bought a rack of baby back ribs, since they were a good price.

Have what I need for potato salad. Just need to pick up some corn on the cob and watermelon. Haven't thought any further about desserts too.

What is everyone else making for the holiday weekend?
