Thread: Food for the 4th?

    Default Food for the 4th?

    I am soooo uninspired this year. It's still cold here. I would turn the
    heat on if I could afford to! I'm still wearing flannel to bed and still
    have the flannel sheets on. Had to dig out an extra blanket for Angela.

    I have some pea beans and that brown sugar Splenda. I plan to make some
    kind of low sugar baked beans with that. I'm sure Angela will complain
    about the end result. She never likes my beans. She does like the canned
    kind.

    I just don't know what else to make. I usually do hamburger patties and
    maybe some hot dogs. She and I don't eat the buns. And my husband won't be
    here so I don't have to worry about buns for him. If this is what I will
    make. I still have a few burger patties in the freezer. I will ask her
    about the hot dogs. Once in a while she will want them but usually not. I
    do also have some frozen cooked chicken breast.

    What other foods are traditionally served on the 4th? I can't really make
    some of the stuff that I used to. I used to make a yummy macaroni and
    cheese with tuna salad. But I can't have that. My normal pasta salad has
    beans in it. I guess I could make a small pasta salad of some kind with
    just raw veggies and no beans. Because I wouldn't want beans with the baked
    beans. OTOH I don't want too many carbs. Grrr... Always something.

    We do normally have things like raw veggies and olives on a regular basis.

    We don't do desserts. And I don't eat fruit although Angela does. I know
    that watermelon is a typical 4th food.

    I just want to make some kind of a special meal because we probably won't be
    having any fireworks. With my husband retiring in a few days we can't
    afford to buy much. I think I do have a few small things left in the
    garage. But... They are predicting showers on the 4th and a high of only
    66! We might have to just sit in the house and watch stuff on TV. Normally
    our neighbors do those really good, expensive ones so I don't buy too many.
    But even to buy a few smallish things can get me to spend $100.

    So what foods do you normally serve on the 4th? And if you don't celebrate
    the 4th where you are at... What kinds of festive foods would you serve for
    a summer party? Oh and we don't own a BBQ nor do I want to have one. So it
    would have to be non-grilled stuff. Thanks!

    I'll have warmed over tacos on the 4th because it's warmed over tacos
    day.

    I love taco salads, just no shells or chips for us. We have them often too.

    Since I'm having surgery Friday, I will probably won't be eating anything
    with to much fat. I found that Jennie-O's turkey dogs aren't to bad. Oscar
    Meyer now has white turkey hotdogs...I could try those.I can't eat Turkey
    Burgers they make me gag. The lady that did my heart echo the other day said
    she found a Mesquite seasoning that really make Turkey Burgers taste good.
    If I feel up to it I will make Potato Salad and baked beans for hubby and
    anyone else that drops by. I'll make a salad for me. I'm going to make
    something with cherries for hubby...he likes cherry pie filling in crust
    ....have to look at my recipes. If I feel like it I will have watermelon for
    dessert. If it was a normal 4th for us, we would invite the kids over and
    have ribs, chicken, burgers and hot dogs , Potato Salad, Baked Beans. Fresh
    veggies with a dip of some sorts. Some 4ths I have bbqued a brisket , maybe
    have baked potatoes and a salad. That is usually if it is just going to be
    hubby and me,

    Ooooh, I do not like turkey burgers. Angela likes those though.

    I have never made a brisket. One day I will. I think my husband would like
    it. Not with BBQ though. We don't like that flavor.

    I hope your surgery goes well Jacquie and you're soon bouncing back. As to
    the Oscar Meyer white turkey dogs...all I can say is they're not ghastly,
    but they're not at all good either. Really. :-)

    Yeh, I had the hot dogs today...no flavor. I do like the Jennie O's though
    Thanks Cheri...if I'm lucky I'll be home tomorrow evening. Surgery is at 2.
    Still not sure if they are going to cut or not. I was told today that
    diabetics need to be off their meds for surgery because the meds have been
    Black Boxed...which means they can cause reactions to the anesthesia...so no
    diabetic drugs tonight

    Good luck with your surgery, Jacquie!

    I'm not much for turkey. Jun grilled me a chicken drumstick and wing
    tonight with a very little of her homemade sweet and spicy (marmalade and
    Sriracha?) sauce. Low salt and pepper as she's protecting my kidleys.

    You don't like the taste of smoke, or the BBQ sauce (which I do't care
    for)?

    There's more than one kind of BBQ. Today I made North Carolina-style pulled
    pork and coleslaw. The sauce is vinegar-based with some heat. It was
    delicious, and definitely diabetic-friendly.

    Yum, I just made pulled pork from a shoulder/butt last week... hours on
    the grill on indirect, 225 f heat, with a dry rub, then some Jardine's
    mesquite bbq sauce (lowest carb/sugar in the store and very smokey)
    after pulling.

    What was in your NC sauce?

    Right. I don't like the taste of either. And I don't think that food that
    is cooked on a BBQ is healthy. So we generally won't eat it. Once in a
    blue moon we will be invited to a BBQ and then I might eat a hamburger
    patty. I figure it can't do too much damage then. But as a general rule, I
    won't eat it.

    I grew up in a house where the only meat we had was plain. We didn't even
    have gravy. And usually no sauces of any kind. We did have tomato sauce on
    pasta. But to me, meat with a sauce on it just seems gloppy and in general
    I don't like it.
