I have been spending so much time recently checking out blogs and collecting recipes that I was excited to make some new foods for today’s Memorial Day BBQ. The BOY was in charge of the meat and I was in charge of everything else. He did a great job manning the grill (as you can see from the pictures below). The weather was sunny and WARM! Everyone enjoyed themselves, and all of the food turned out fabulous! Here was our menu…
Beverages (plus the usual beer and wine)
Iced Tea (A WF favorite of mine)
Sunny White Sangira (from Angela at Oh She Glows)
Roasted Red Pepper Hummus
Bean Dip (actually an original recipe)
1 can black beans
1 can yellow or white corn
1 can diced tomatoes
1/2 red onion (finely chopped)
Juice from 1 lime
1 tsp cumin (add more to taste)
Rinse and drain canned ingredients. Combine with red onion, lime juice, and cumin. Stir, refrigerate and serve. Can make 1-2 days ahead of time. Add lime juice before serving.
Baked Oatmeal Snack Bars (from Kath of Kath Eats Real Food)
Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars (from Meredith at What Merry Makes)
After two busy days in the kitchen, I was finally ready for some food and a cold glass of Sangria!
Let the fun begin…
Happy Memorial Day!!!
