With Neil filling in for Tim Conway Jr., of course we have to talk food!

The 4th is tomorrow have the perfect food to bring to 4th of July cookout.

Of course you need grilling meats. Nothing beats huddling around a grill, watching your dinner cook while enjoying a cold drink, and the company of your loved ones. Hamburgers, hotdogs, steak, chicken breast, pork chops or shrimp are delicious when marinated and grilled on an open fire.

We can't forget the sides. Hot sides like mashed potatoes, macaroni and cheese, baked beans, or collard greens are perfectly complimentary to your meats. Grilled veggies like onions, bell peppers, asparagus, corn, and zucchini will have an excellent charred flavor. Salads are also a great touch, pasta, green, potato, egg, and macaroni all work just fine. It tastes just like Summer!

We can't forget the desserts. Frozen treats like ice cream and popsicles cools things down. We need it in the heatwave. Fresh fruit is also a great dessert! We can stay healthy and keep our summer bodies tact. You can use watermelon, strawberries, cherries, peaches, and raspberries because they are best during summer months.

Lastly, we need some drinks! Cocktails, beers, sodas, and don't forget the water!!! Now you're golden for the holiday.
