Memorial Day Weekend and Time for a Cookout Special

Memorial Day Weekend! Time to roll the grill out of the garage for the first cookout of the summer! Get your friends and family together for some old fashioned fun and good food.

Start with a dip or two and let your guests wander, meet and greet. You can pick something up at the grocery store or take it up a notch with my Caponata or Baba Ganoush or both! Serve the dips with pita chips or crostini and fresh veggies.

Take your pick from my Grilled Swordfish with Olive & Caper Salsa, Red Hot Barbequed ChickenGrilled Rib Eye with Compound Butter or Not Your Ordinary Burger. Complete the main course with a couple of salads. Think green and give my Mixed Greens with Grilled Asparagus, Cucumber & Avocado a try. A tasty pasta salad is always welcome. Try my Orzo Salad with Lemony Pesto & Grilled Tomatoes or Couscous Salad with Grilled Vegetables.

Have a great weekend) and bon appétit!
