Memorial Day is the prefect way to get your summer off to a great start. It marks the beginning of summer and you should want to have an event that will have friends and family talking about long after winter of the great food and fun they had at your memorial day BBQ.
Before you even think about the menu, make sure you have the gear and equipment to be the best chef you can be or at least look like the best chef on the face of the planet.
You can do this with the right kind of apron. Your apron can be a standard white color or you can choose a solid color. No matter the choice of color try to have a fun design people will talk to you about during the party.
Next, try you hands at making fresh lemonade from scratch. Yes, it is an extra task but there is nothing like giving guests fresh lemonade to welcome the summer. All you will need is 1 cup of water, 1 cup of sugar, four to six lemons to juice and four cups of cold water.
Blend the cup of water and cup of sugar in a small saucepan. Bring this mixture to boil and frequently stir until sugar dissolves completely. Store your lemonade in a glass pitcher to refrigerate a few hours before the party. If you want some fizz to the lemonade, use sparkling water.
To make sure the lemonade does not become watery, freeze some of the juice in ice trays to use during the party to keep the lemonade cold. This mixture serves six people a pitcher.
Next, start thinking about how you will want to set your table. Make sure you use a bright tablecloth to give a summer feel and don’t forget clamps to keep the tablecloth on your outdoor table. Once you know the theme of your party, you can start planning out your BBQ menu.
