Host a Summer BBQ to Remember

It’s That Time of Year Again…

Summertime in Lancaster County PA means campfires with the kids, catching lightning bugs, and barbeques with family and friends.  Whether you’re hosting a picnic for the 12 and under softball champs or throwing a 4th of July bash for all your closest pals, here are some of our favorite ideas to make your barbecue one to remember!

Make Your Meal an Experience

Kabobs are a fun way to get your adult guests involved as well.  Cut up your choice of meat, veggies and fruit and allow guests to build their own kabobs.  Have the grill master heat them for a few minutes until they’re fully cooked and voila!  This is a great way to please even the pickiest eaters.

Put a Twist on the Classic S’more

Not only are they delicious, but they’re less messy than traditional s’mores so your guests can enjoy casual conversation while enjoying dessert. Purchase waffle cones from your local grocery store and instead of purchasing large roasting marshmallows, pick up a bag of mini marshmallows.  You’ll also need chocolate chips or fun-size Hershey’s chocolate bars to do the trick.  Simply fill the cones with your favorite treats and wrap in aluminum foil, then place on the grill until melted to your satisfaction.  Consider fresh strawberries or bananas and Nutella or peanut butter as additional toppings or fillings.  Photo Courtesy: Free People

Skip the Fireworks – Begin a New Family Tradition

Fireworks are noisy and even sparklers can be dangerous for kids.  This year, end your BBQ with a beautiful, new family tradition – Chinese lanterns.  You will need an open area and a long reach lighter.  Don’t worry, the lanterns will only come down after they burn out so they are not a fire hazard and most are biodegradable.  For an inexpensive and memorable experience, check your local superstore or order online.  Photo Courtesy:  All Things Are Ready blog   summer lanterns
