What to Eat on the Fourth of July

Let's Dish: What Are You Eating For the Fourth?

Happy (almost) long weekend! In the City by the Bay, the sun's shining, skies are fair, and it looks like it'll be perfect weather for busting out the barbecue. Which brings me to an important question: what will you be eating over the holiday? Are you going the all-American route with hot dogs, burgers, and macaroni salad, or do you have plans to do something different?

I'm returning to my hometown of Houston to spend time with the fam. I'll undoubtedly hit up one of my favorite Bayou City spots, Goode Co., for brisket and perhaps even a slice of pecan pie. I'm also looking forward to spending some time in front of the charcoal with Dad, which means there'll be some beautiful barbecued chicken, steak, and corn to look forward to. What are you noshing on while you celebrate your independence?

Everyone in my family is "on a diet" this year, so we're keeping it light: grilled chicken breasts, grilled veggies, steaks for those that are not dieting, fresh fruit salad, chips and salsa, tossed salad with assorted dressings, and a light potato salad with no mayo. And birthday cake, because we are also celebrating my niece's first birthday :)

I know I'm making guacamole (my specialty!) for a party we're going to on Sunday, but that's all I know! We might have Santa Maria-style barbecue one of the days as well - that would be awesome!
