Have you started planning your Memorial Day BBQ?


I always look forward to celebrating Memorial Day. It's the start of summer and long weekends are always nice!

I'm already thinking about my menu. I'm fairly traditional when it comes to what I make -- hot dogs, burgers, potato salad, pasta salad and grilled veggies.


What will you be grilling this year? What are your favorite summer salads?

Well, here's my favorite barbeque menu :

---Barbequed chicken

---Corn cooked on the coals in foil

---3 bean salad

---Baked potatoes cooked the same way as the corn

---Chocolate 3 layer cake

---Iced tea or lemonade ( made with real lemons )

I'm thinking BBQ ribs and chicken with my homemade sauce. And I always have hot dogs on hand for the younger kids. Potato salad, macaroni salad, and I found a new recipe for broccoli and tomato salad that's really good. Deviled eggs are a must. And fried bread dough for dessert. This year should be fun because for the first time in a few years we'll have the pool open. I really hope it's a nice sunny day.

I think we are going camping so probably some ribs slow cooked in the campfire coals in my cast iron dutch oven, then brushed with BBQ sauce & bbqd over the fire on the grate a few minutes. Usually bake some potatos in the coals and make some veggies in tin foil on grate. Then follow up with banana boats for dessert.

I love Grilling. I also have some Great Chocolate Grilling Sauces that everyone should try! My favorite is Grilled Chicken with Dove Chocolate Discoveries Cocoa Rub. I also love our White Chocolate Raspberry Vinigarette on my salads. Can't wait to prepare these and more... lynnzenda@aol.com.

 We always have a big get together and BBQ on Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, Mothers Day and Fathers Day.  Back when I was a kid, which was a while back, we went all out on those days.  Will probably do the same this year.
