We asked on Facebook: How do you plan to celebrate Independence Day and what’s everyone cooking or eating that day?
Hot dogs and burgers.
This year, probably just hang out in our backyard. It has become our new hangout since the pandemic.

Barbecue chicken and hamburgers on the grill. Baked beans, potato salad, fresh guacamole and chips with sweet iced tea.
Brisket from Pennies, with potato salad, cucumber onion salad. Fresh fruit salad and homemade biscuits, all in my back patio with neighbors.
Camille Thiel Downes
Having a seafood boil at my house with crabs, shrimp and crawfish. Spicy potatoes, corn and plenty of margaritas. Hopefully a stress-free day.
Hang out on The Strand. Have a drink at Tola Mo’ Bettah Market. Go home and have a shrimp fry.
Hopefully, our son-in-law will fire up his smoker and do a brisket and chicken.
League City celebrates July 3 with hot dogs and fireworks to give more family time.
Family, fireworks, hotdogs and hamburgers!

Grilling and chilling in the backyard. Island time!
On my boat, on my boat, on my boat.
Hoping to attend a parade if anyone has one. Also eat barbecue at Joe’s Barbecue in Alvin with family and then swim later that evening.
Denise Sowell Shead
Hoping to be at Galveston having fun.
Jenkins Barbecue ribs, chicken, sausage, and potato salad, baked beans, slaw, watermelon, swim and play in pool with some cold beverages.
We recently bought a pontoon boat, so will spend the evening on the lake. I am hoping for some brisket and my grandmother’s rice dressing.
