The Hawthornes' Fourth of July Menu.

  I know everyone has been wondering,
"What are the Hawthornes having
for their Fourth of July meal?"

Well, wait no more.

 Here's the Hawthornes' Fourth of July meal:

  • Grilled Chicken with Sweet Baby Ray's Honey BBQ Sauce doctored with white vinegar to thin it out.

  • Mr. Hawthorne's Special Cole Slaw

  • Mr. Hawthorne's Kidney Beans
Simmer beans until al dente.
Pour into baking dish.

1/3 cup ketchup
3 TB white vinegar
1 TB yellow mustard
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup molasses
1 tsp Mr. Stubbs Hickory Smoke

Fry some bacon until crisp.
Pour off grease,
but leave enough to saute 1/3 cup chopped red onions.

Crumble bacon over top of beans, add onions, and sauce.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes.

I refuse to eat canned baked beans, even when doctored,
but this I love.

  • Rosie's Black Bean and Roasted Corn Salad with Lime and Cumin Dressing  (Recipe forthcoming.)

It was worth the wait, wasn't it?
