Monthly Mingle #2: Big on Barbecue

The last Monthly Mingle was a big success and we girls partied the football theme with some scrumptious dishes.

It was so much of fun that I am inviting everyone over again this month.

What is the theme in June?

Well June is a great month, besides the fact that it is my birthday month (June 2) it is a month of clear blue sunny skies, warm lazy afternoons and long party nights. It is a month when everything in moved to the big outdoors. Playing, sports, sleeping, partying, eating and even cooking are just a few things that we do on the long June days.

I love the spontaneous get togethers with friends and neighbors. Just throw on the barbecue, sit back and enjoy the evening eating, drinking and chilling. Everywhere you smell the aroma of charcoal, spices and you hear the laughter and clinkering of people enjoying glasses of chilled wine, beer or punch. AHHHHH!

So, I would like to get you over here to a fun and awesome barbecue party. It is a hot June day, so throw on your bikinis and shorts and pack that sun block. Soeren's sand box and inflatable pool has been set up to serve as the beach and I have the charcoal sizzling hot.

Bring along your favorite barbecue dish or drink. Everything is allowed. Marinated meats, vegetables, fruits for the grill, salads and sides to accompany the grilled goods, sauces and of course cocktails and punches to cool down and have us on our merry ole way ;-)

The deadline for the June Monthly Mingle is July 8 so you have plenty of time to prepare. I look forward to having you over. Let's get this barbecue sizzlin' folks!
