Home for the Fourth

This menu will complement your holiday activities with the season's favorite food--burgers, shrimp, fresh tomatoes, green beans, and blackberries. Most of the recipes can be made the day before. However, the Fresh Blackberry Pie should be assembled and served on the same day for best results. You can prepare the hamburger patties ahead also, but cook them at mealtime for burgers that are deliciously hot and juicy. (Serves 8)
