Here’s how I’m guessing it went: You got bored yesterday, sitting around the fire pit, drinking beer, and you ran out of things to talk about with the family. Bored, you thought it would be a great idea to throw the steaks you bought for the 4th on the grill, even though it was a day early. By six o’clock, the food was gone, and today, you can’t find an open supermarket to save your life.* If you’re looking for ideas for something to cook at the last minute, here are some of our tried-and-true favorites. Happy 4th of July, everybody!

*Actually, the Forest Avenue Hannaford is open until 9 P.M. Whole Foods is open until 8 P.M. Food scarcity may not be the issue I thought it was.
