4th of July Recipe Ideas

Dishes for special occasions

"To roast some beef, to carve a joint with neatness,
To boil up sauces, and to blow the fire,
Is anybody's task: he who does this
Is but a seasoner and broth-maker.
A cook is quite another thing. His mind
Must comprehend all facts and circumstances;
Where is the place, and what the time of supper;
Who are the quests, and who the entertainer;
What fish he ought to buy, and where to buy it."


Have you started planning your 4th of July menu? I always plan ahead, because along with appetizers, salads and hot dogs, I have come up with a drinks and desserts. This year there's going to be a platter of fresh vegetables from the garden, corn on the cob and roasted carrots, variety of burgers and homemade berry ice cream.
