Spice up your summer season by planning an “Old School” Barbecue for family and friends. Since Memorial Day is around the corner and marks the unofficial start of summer, you can spike up your cookout or indoor party with a great semi-healthy tasty menu. Of course, you will have the traditional grilled burgers and Hot dogs. You don’t want to be cooking and serving all day so limit your sides. Make what is quick, easy and tasty so you can enjoy your company. You may want to have more vegetable dishes as opposed to starchy. Most people enjoy lighter food on a hot day and plenty of drink or water with lemon or oranges. To ramp it up for guests, make one special dish to go along with the salad, veggies, burgers and hot dogs. Coca-Cola Ribs or Chicken and Veggie Skewers are a great dish. The Ribs are quick and easy to make and require only 5 ingredients. The best part is starting them the night before in the Crockpot. The Chicken & Veggie skewers are very simple and require 3-4 ingredients.
Show your appreciation on Memorial Day for those who lost their lives while protecting our country so that others may live. Remember to teach your children the meaning of the holiday by taking them to a Memorial Day Parade or Service. Most major cities have parades and other commemorations. Take a moment of remembrance for our fallen heroes.
Lastly, don’t forget the deserts consisting of the Fruit bowl, Jello Mold and Pound Cake and of course your R&B playlist of your favorite classic Singers or Groups such as Peabo Bryson, The Bar-Kays, New Birth(Just to name a few). Oh you might want to set-up a video for those who don’t know how to do the Terminal Reaction Dance, that is one sure way to get your guest in a dancing mood. Get that Party started!
