Although we're back to school, I never really think of summer as officially on it's way
out until after Labor Day...only 12 more days.
We'll happily be saying farewell to the hottest summer on record by hosting a family bbq.
I'm sharing my usual do-ahead-style menu along with some simple table decor ideas
early enough so you can use them if you'd like.
Grilled Beef Sliders on Bakery Rolls with Assorted Toppings
Cheddar, Swiss, Pepper Jack Cheese
Blue Cheese Dressing
Pickles, Lettuce, Tomato
(Malt Vinegar & Sea Salt...my guilty pleasure!)
(I tweak the recipe a bit by adding an extra 1/2 cup of brown sugar and cooking the beans covered
at 300 degrees for a couple of hours, then I'll transfer to the jars and keep in the warm oven.)
I found this recipe 3 years ago from Our Best Bites here.
You can make ahead and freeze them - they go from freezer to oven to table perfectly!
Aren't they the cutest?
I like using these old fashioned plastic burger baskets, I found mine at a restaurant
supply store years ago, I purchase paper liners there as well. I think I've seen them at Target.
I purchased the red & white check napkins from Sur La Table, I mix them with solid white.
Are you ready to say farewell to summer?
