For those of you who are wondering what to plan on July 4th, Ranch Events has the answer!! One of the best things to do on the Fourth of July is to plan a BBQ. Nothing says summer holidays as a good old-fashioned BBQ and here are some tips for hosting a great 4th of July BBQ.
When it comes to food for a Fourth of July BBQ all you need to do is keep it simple and provide foods that are normally served at BBQ’s. Don’t worry about BBQing something that everybody is going to eat because most people will eat your classic BBQ foods, even kids. For meats, you should choose something simple like hamburgers, hot dogs, and ribs. For side dishes, you can have potato salad, macaroni salad or any other type of pasta salad that you enjoy on warm summer days. You should also include a green salad choice and corn on the cob (off the grill of course) to round out your major food groups. When planning the food menu for your BBQ do not forget to include a chocolate dessert and plenty of beverages for your guests to drink.
