There will be fireworks, and there will be parades, but most of all, there will be food - and lots of it - when families and friends get together this weekend to celebrate Independence Day. It's the sort of weekend that leaves mile-wide smiles on the faces of supermarket operators and other food suppliers. "It's the biggest of the summer holidays," said John Piccione, manager at Roy Tweedy's Old Fashion Butcher in Ridley Township. Piccione said that he would move more chicken, ribs, hamburgers and hot dogs out of his shop than on any other weekend of the year.

Like beef, ground lamb patties are best served rare. LAMB 'QUARTER POUNDERS' 1 pound lean ground lamb 4 teaspoons lemon juice 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano (or mint) leaves Generous pinch each: ground cinnamon and nutmeg Garlic salt and coarse black pepper, to taste Divide lamb into quarters; shape each into a round patty.

What do heroin, cocaine, crack and hamburger patties have in common? They were all hauled in during a evening's work by Philadelphia narcotics officers yesterday - the drugs at the Richard Allen Homes public housing development in North Philadelphia, and the burgers from a suspect on the street as the drug-raid officers headed to their office. According to Narcotics Division Sgt. Michael Mander, police raided an apartment in the 1000 block of Brown Street about 5 p.m. Inside they found 280 packets of heroin, 700 bags of cocaine and 263 vials of crack, Mander said.

If you're bored with beef, try "otherburgers. " What are otherburgers? Burgers made with other ground meat: lamb, veal or pork, for example. Or no meat at all. How about tunaburgers or turkeyburgers for a change. While ketchup is traditional on a beefburger, otherburgers call for other toppings and seasonings, more in keeping with their flavor. Fresh tomato or cucumber slices go great on tunaburgers. On turkeyburgers, too. Turkey also takes to fragrant herbs. Lamb and vealburgers are best seasoned with lemon, herbs or spices.

This plump, juicy burger is my desire-driven answer to the nutritional call to limit the portion size of a piece of lean meat to a deck of cards. I found a way to make a burger both healthful and indulgent: Stuff it with a modest amount of lean meat and vegetables. You expand the size of the burger, so your eyes widen with excitement before you bite into it. Antipasto-Stuffed Turkey Burgers 4 servings   For the burgers 3 tablespoons chopped roasted red peppers, drained and rinsed 3 tablespoons chopped marinated artichoke hearts 2 tablespoons chopped pitted green olives 3 tablespoons shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese 11/4 pounds extra-lean or lean ground turkey breast 1/8 teaspoon salt 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper For the spread 2 tablespoons tomato paste 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar 1/4 teaspoon salt 1. For the burgers: Toss together the peppers, artichokes, olives, and mozzarella in a bowl.

It wasn't so long ago that ground turkey was hard to find. Now it's available in many forms - bulk, logs and patties - in almost every supermarket. You also have a choice of ground turkey breast or thigh meat. Why does it matter what part of the bird the ground meat comes from? There are two big issues: fat and flavor. Ounce for ounce, ground turkey breast has less than half the fat of turkey thigh meat. If you're scrupulous about trimming fat from your diet, breast meat is the way to go. A small turkey breast patty has about 1 1/2 grams of fat, and you can't do much better than that on a low-fat diet.

New labeling and processing rules to ensure that certain kinds of meat patties, including precooked hamburgers, are safe to eat are being considered by the Agriculture Department. Lester M. Crawford, administrator of the department's food safety and inspection service, said there had been increasing evidence over the last several years that disease organisms survived in products that many consumers erroneously believed were fully cooked when bought. The proposal would affect fully cooked, partially cooked and "char- marked" ground meat patties.

My golden retriever and I are eating food that looks exactly alike. And for almost the same reason. This can't be good. But it's delicious. You may remember that last summer, I tried to lower my cholesterol the natural way, without drugs. That meant I had to lose weight, which was when I discovered that my problem is portion control. In that I have none. Please tell me I'm not alone. I can't be, because I've noticed that more and more food marketing is targeted at people like me, in that pretzels, cookies, and chips now come in 100-calorie packs.

Maybe the question now is "What's the beef?" City Licenses and Inspections Commissioner Bennett Levin yesterday took Wendy's Old Fashioned Hamburgers off the hook for a $96,000 fine, but refused to apologize for citing them last week for allegedly short-weighting their quarter-pound hamburger patties. "I don't believe there was any criminal intent," Levin said. "But the process by which they package and deliver their patties will have to change. " Levin added that L&I found "no intent to deceive customers," and that it responded to the city citations in a responsible manner.

Harry T. Triolo, 68, who helped develop the wholesale distribution of portion-controlled meats for local delis and taverns, died Friday of heart failure at Presbyterian Medical Center. He lived in South Philadelphia. Mr. Triolo and three brothers started the Triolo Brothers Grocery, 16th and Morris Streets, shortly after World War II.

Thanksgiving this year with Patti LaBelle promises to be quite the party. Sharing the table at Patti's Wynnewood home will be none other than the Los Angeles YouTube blogger known as James Wright Chanel , whose ode to Patti's Pies, the sweet-potato pie she's selling exclusively at Walmart, have had the desserts flying off store shelves. The video had more than 3.2 million views as of yesterday. "My new friend James Wright took this fierce video and it took my pie over the top, and people are losing their minds over this pie," the famed local songstress told Fox 29. Also at Patti's table will be Ahmir "Questlove" Thompson , of the Roots , who she said has been ribbing her for years about not inviting him over to sample her cooking.

Walmart is doing the math and by all indications the square root of pie is the correct answer. Sweet potato pie , that is. Thanks to Philly's own songbird Patti LaBelle and one of her biggest fans, the retail giant is nearly sold out of the popular holiday dessert, which bears her name. The Walmart in Cheltenham even posted multiple signs at its entrance telling shoppers the pies were sold out. A sinfully delicious frenzy has been created by way of nutmeg, butter, sugar and a hilarious viral Internet video.

JENNIFER Braxton was on the hunt for one of those Patti LaBelle's sweet-potato pies. So, on Saturday, after getting off work at 10 p.m., she drove to the Walmart Supercenter on Byberry Road. She walked all around the store but couldn't find one. The next day, she called and an employee answered, "Thank you for calling Walmart. We're out of pies. How may I help you?" "I have a company potluck coming on Friday and I said I would bring Patti pies," she explained to me later via Facebook.

If it were anyone else taking on the winds, rain, and lightning of Thursday night for an outdoors show, the first of the summer season at Dell Music Center, it would have been a washout. This, however, was Patti LaBelle, Philadelphia's first lady of R&B, who is still going strong at 71, 52 years into her career. The opening act was supposed to be local trombonist Jeff Bradshaw's large band, featuring Najee and Kenny Lattimore, but they did not play. LaBelle came on early at 9:45 p.m. and proceeded to warm the chilly audience with a piercing, nuanced voice that raged and seduced.

A BUCKS COUNTY prison guard with a Sawschlong Obsession, or a proclivity for ogling inmates' private parts, was arrested for, among other jailhouse shocks, forcing inmates to play "patty-cake [pat-a-cake]" and hug one another, prosecutors said. Joseph Mullen, 28, of Feasterville, was charged by an investigating grand jury with official oppression and harassment yesterday after his sexually suggestive actions toward prisoners at the Bucks County Correctional Facility gave inmates the gruesome prison blues, according to authorities.

That voice, that seemingly sweet, innocent voice, can growl sensually, arch dramatically, and reach towering angelic highs in a heartbeat. When Patti LaBelle begins to speak, there is rich vocalism in every breath, whether she's calling you "honey," or talking about her gospel past with Southwest Philadelphia's Beulah Baptist Church Choir, her soon-to-debut-at-Walmart frozen shrimp-n-lobster macaroni and cheese, her latest tour stop at the Mann Center...
