Hot Dogs: How ironic that National Hot Dog Month and July 4th go hand in hand. Did you know that hot dogs are are always found on the grill for the 4th of July?  Yep.... July 4th is a well known day for grilling and although it's popular to grill all kinds of meat, it's still a fact that hot dogs are the #1 choice along side other food favorites.

Cool Salads: Salads are traditional! July is one HOT month and having cool and refreshing salads on the table is everyones plan of attack. There are hundreds of salad recipes that can be kept in the cooler until time to eat.
see National Salad Month for salad ideas!

Barbecue Baked Beans:#1 choice along side all grilling foods because the taste goes with everything. We like to cook our with sausage for some extra smokey flavor.
see beenie weenie baked beans!

Chip & Veggie Dips: On July 4th we snack on food all day long and this day wouldn't be the same if we didn't have several dips to choose from. Salsa can serve double duty on this day too because you can not only dip with it but you can spoon it on top of your hotdogs too!
see Food Dips for recipes!

Pickles: Did you know that pickles are ate more on July 4th than any other time of the year? Yep! They are ate whole right out of the jar either sweet or dill. They are put on top of hot dogs as relish and sliced dills are put inside hamburgers. Since July 4th is basically a picnic day it means pickles all the way! See National Pickle Month.

Lemonade: Ahhhh... cool and refreshing! Ok I know what your going to say, beer is the #1 drink on the 4th of July but for those of us who don't drink beer, lemonade is the next best thing. Followed by sweet tea and coke.
see National Lemonade Day for recipes!

Strawberry Shortcake: Did you know that Strawberry Shortcake is the #1 dessert that is traditionaly served on July 4th Holiday!  Yes in deed it is. In the U. S. just about every 4th of July cookout will have this cool and refreshing dessert on the table. Many times blueberries are added to the red strawberries to make the dish "red, white & blue" symbolic for the holiday colors. see Strawberry Shortcake Day!

Homemade Ice Cream: Get the ice cream machine out and get her cranked up. It's time to make some homemade ice cream! Yes ice cold homemade ice cream is traditional on July 4th for many families!  Maybe that's because the month of July is National Ice Cream Month.
