I LOVE the 4th of JULY! We are so blessed to have friends who own acreage who have a "party" every year. There are about eight families that get together - to eat, drink, socialize, and blow stuff up. Yep, we are fireworks luvin', hope we don't have to go to the hospital, can't believe you spent that much money, 4th of July family. As I was saying (before I got sidetracked on fireworks), we spend our 4th of July's with a great group of friends who bring a great number of side dishes to go with the great number of hamburgers and hot dogs we eat. So while I could have talked about the cheap hot dogs (at Price Chopper or Hy-Vee) or hamburger (at Price Chopper, Hen House or Hy-Vee) - I decided to let those stand on their own and talk about some great side dishes. This dish contains items that are on sale, are tried and true picnic favorites, and won't break the bank.
