The horse is out of the barn on this one.  Yet, I still feel the need to open my yap.

Considerable network and local air time last week was devoted to ways to spice up holiday barbecues and cook outs.

I'll pass.

For me, one of the major charms of a cook out is tradition.  I like my burgers.  I like my hot dogs.  I like my standard macaroni salad and potato salad.  Put some lettuce, tomato, ketchup and onion on the burger.  Maybe a slice or two of cheese, preferably Swiss.  American is horribly bland.  Mustard on the hot dog.  Relish and onions are okay.  If a dear old friend is still reading the blog, she is cringing over the onion thing.  Sorry.  I gotta be me.

Standard burgers and dogs simply taste like a holiday.

You can keep the fancy stuff.
