July is here and with that comes the wonderful events celebrating our country’s independence. Check local town Web sites for fireworks, parades, and celebration. The weather is supposed to be glorious… so fire up the coals and light the grills. Going through some advertisements this week in The Jewish Standard, there are some great bargains for barbecue foods to prepare.
