    Coleslaw (good for topping hot dogs too)

    Potato Salad

    BBQ Beans (Baked Beans)


    Macaroni Salad (My Favorite if home made)

    Mac-N-Cheese (homemade, not box)

    Good Pasta Salad (lot's of great recipes on allrecipes.com)

    Watermellon (spiked if you can do it:))

    Rolls (for chicken)


    Montreal Steak seasoning goes very well on burgers, and the make a Montreal Chicken seasoning as well...you can find those on the spice isle of any major grocery chain. Other wise, you can make up your own "Special Seaoning" Using granulated garlic (wouldn't use garlic salt) salt, pepper, thyme, sage and rosemary (go well with chicken)

    Good luck and have fun...Where's my invite?

    Mexican Bean Salad

    1 can black beans

    1 can kidney beans

    1 can chickpeas

    1 1/2 cup thawed frozen corn

    1 chopped red onion

    1 chopped bell pepper

    1 bunch chopped fresh cilantro

    1 small chopped chili with the seeds removed


    1/4 to 1/2 cup lime or lemon juice

    a little salt

    This is very tasty and is best if it sits in the fridge overnight before eating. If you don't want three kinds of beans in it just use three cans of black beans.
