Last week, hubby felt motivated and decided to barbecue on our gas grill which was sort of a soft opening for the backyard festivities for the season. He barbecued chicken, hot dogs, hamburgers, and ribs. But since we barbecued last week and cooked most of your average items, I think this holiday weekend we should go a little outside of our comfort zone sprinkling in some fish, steak, and a few items for the kids.
My kids love fruit with strawberries, apples, grapes, pineapple, and oranges. Blueberries and oranges are sort of a grey area with them but I may be able to sneak it by them if I put it in between two of their other favorite fruits. Another trick I saw is to place a marshmallow in the middle to entice the kids to nibble all the way through the kebab to get to their favorite fruits.
While this recipe looks very gourmet, it actually sounds pretty easy to make. I figure the kids would like this given that they like chicken and apples. Sounds like a win-win, right? I just hope it tastes good with ketchup. My kids love to dip. Do you dip or douse?
What barbecue is complete without dessert? Just last week, I made a quick run to King Kullen and picked up a small back of gummy worms. Little did I know, my little stinkers would soon find me out and practically eat the whole bag. Especially my youngest who LOVES gummies. This Dirt Dessert recipe might be just the recipe for my little dirt squirts who love playing in the dirt in one of my planters in my back yard. All the recipe calls for is chocolate pudding, Oreos, and gummy worms. Sounds easy enough, right?
