As a tradition, we always have family recipes. Everyone shares in the meal so we do recipes that you would call, group based. For this year, we are cooking roast vegetable salad. We are of a Mediterranean background so some of the ingredients are quite native like red bell pepper, feta cheese and basil leaves.

Awesome food! We'll likely be doing a potluck-and I'll probably take the perennial favorite "sunset potato salad". Great for picnics-no mayo but with a tasty coating of vinegar, chiles and herbs. http://eatlittleeatbig.blogspot.com/2010/11/recipe-for-sunset-potato-salad.html

Our borough has a Fourth of July celebration every year for as long as I can remember. People from all over come to see the fireworks. Dormont was one of the original for fireworks. This event is community paid for. The boro is aapproximately on square mile. I would definitely have hamburgers & hot dogs, bake beans & watermelon. Bake star cutouts.

This is the first year I can remember we are keeping it simple and intimate. Normally we have as many as 100 people to feed. This year, 8. The guests will be handling the sides while I will be manning the grill, ribs, St. Louis' own Pork Steaks (really folks you all need to find out about these) and possibly scallops and/or shimp as an appetizer.
