Fourth of July ideas

Gosh, it's almost time to go out and start grilling.  WOW.   The 4th is coming up in a couple of days but if you want to get ahead of the game, you can start celebrating on the 1st, which just so happens to be Canada Day. 
Happy Canada Day to my fellow Canadians.  
Happy 4th of July to Americans. 
I'm celebrating both, cause I can.

So I don't have many grilling recipes, but I do have ideas on other foods.  Including maybe doing a Low Country Boil.  Personally I love making one of these up, and it always looks spectacular and depending on your budget, adding a few crab legs in at the end can send this great dish over the top.

If you're doing hamburgers, might I suggest this recipe as a hamburger topper.  My Blossom Dip tastes incredible with a grilled hamburgers.  (You can find this recipe and more in my new cookbook Nibbles and Bites available on Amazon the first week in July.)
You might want an appetizer with that meal so how about some of these, my Crazy Squared Deviled Eggs.
Or just a nice old fashioned starter or side like this for your lovely grilled steak.   Caesar Salad with a dressing you make yourself.   You really can make your own dressing. 

That's but a few ideas, now go forth and grill or boil and have a safe wonderful Canada Day or a Fourth of July celebration.
