Hounds, I'm hosting two, yes two, cookouts this weekend (Friday night and Sunday afternoon) in celebration of my father's 80th birthday. I was going to do some sides and apps that require baking, cooking, etc., but we don't have A/C and I know it's going to be brutally hot this weekend.
So... I'm doing everything on the grills outside, but I need to get some interesting sides, salads, etc. Each cookout involves meat and seafood. Which would be a better choice for variety of ready-made food? Wilson Farms or Russo's? I live in Burlington, so Watertown is really the farthest I'll travel (and I'm not nuts about that...).
I won't consider Whole Foods because everything there tastes curiously the same, with the added woe of really fast spoilage. TIA!
