Get a Start on Independence Day with a Third of July Cookout!

TIME: 6:00 to... whenever the last person leaves!


DINNER: I'll make my Special Baked Beans and pre-cook the ribs & chicken.  Our Grill Masters will sauce the meats up and grill them to perfection!

YOU BRING: Your favorite sides that go well with Barbecue:  For example, a variety of Potato Salads, Cole Slaw, Corn Bread, Mac & Cheese, Veggie Salads, etc.

Appetizers: Deviled eggs and a couple more appetizers to get things rolling would be great.

Desserts: Brownies, Strawberry Shortcake, or Fruit Pies would all work nicely.

Beverages: Please bring whatever you drink; I'll have a large cooler on the patio to put beer, wine, sodas, etc. in, and another cooler with plenty of ice.

Also Bring: A folding chair if you have one (leave it in your car, just in case we need it).

Other: We'll be outside on the patio and inside, too, and if weather is an issue, we'll move inside and finish the meats in the oven.

I'll email the address to those who are coming as the date approaches, but please RSVP, ASAP, so I can see what else we'll need .

 

Looking forward to seeing you all, and having a fun event to start off our Fourth of July Celebrations!

    By any chance, did someone accidentally leave the party with my stainless serving spoon? It has an Emerilware logo on the handle. If so, please let me know and I'll arrange to get it at an upcoming dinner. Thanks again for making it an awesome event.

    Happy Fourth of July Everyone!

    It was GREAT TO SEE YOU ALL last night. The Food and Beverages that everyone contributed were fantastic: lots of delicious appetizers, oven-baked BBQ chicken and ribs (thunderstorms dampened the grilling plans, but not the spirit of the party), cool, crisp salads, and yummy veggie dishes, plus decadent desserts that included a red, white and blue trifle and a flag cake! We all enjoyed welcoming five new members to our group and I'm sure we'll see a lot of them at upcoming events. Thank you all for helping me celebrate my "Happy Medicare Day" in great style, and I hope the evening put you all in the mood for today's patriotic festivities and fireworks. Special thanks to Kathy Striggow for her collaboration in planning and shopping for the decorations and favors.

    See you all soon.
