My husband loves the 4th of July. It is a combination of a beer tent and tractor pull, all set in a TINY town that swells to probably three times the population during the 2 day celebration.
This year we are going to keep it low key, we both have to work on the 5th, and it is freakin hot outside. We are going to hang about the house and head over to time to see the fireworks.
Here are some wonderful, summery foods to make for your celebration, from some of my favorite food blogs

Grilled Cesar Salad ::: Simple Bites
