Sunday Suppers: Fantastic Fourth

We hope all our fellow state siders get to enjoy the Fourth of July with friends and family, a grill and pool nearby. Remember to have plenty of beer on hand. Here’s a menu with a number of dishes you can prepare ahead of time. Of course, barbecue baked beans, potato salad, grilled corn and coleslaw are perennial favorites too.

This blog attempts to collect some of the things I try to create with food and booze. Sometimes I succeed and sometimes I fail. My hope is to entertain and maybe help people think a little harder about what they decide to eat and drink.
