Summer has started to wind down, the kids will be heading back to school in a few short weeks but there’s still time to get outside and grill. I actually prefer to grill in the fall. Cooler temperatures and fewer bugs are a big plus. Here in the South we have great grilling weather nearly year round. We’re planning to have an end of summer barbecue to celebrate those last few hot days of freedom before the school bell rings. I’m going to toss a few pork chops on the grill but not before I brine them (like in this MAPLE SYRUP BRINED PORK CHOP RECIPE) rub them with some savory spices like in this (CHORIZO SPICED GRILLED PORK CHOPS RECIPE). I’ll add lots of healthy vegetables to the grill like zucchini with olive oil and thyme and fresh summer corn.
My husband and I always come up with a banging’ playlist comprised of mostly 90’s east coast hip hop (Biggie Gimme One More Chance) a little Tupac is included for my west coast friends. Some Dancehall Reggae music adds great flavor to the rotation, (a little “Roots and Culture”) and just a bit of Pop-Justin Timberlake bringing sexy back really gets things jumpin’.
A great big punch bowl of sangria, some beer and lemonade for the teetotalers (actually sweet tea might be more appropriate).
I usually head out to the dollar store and pick up a bunch of outdoor toys- hula hoops, jump ropes, water guns (those are never really a good idea, someone who doesn’t want to get squirted ALWAYS gets squired…but they are SO much fun). I buy this stuff with the kids in mind but as the party goes on a few adults grab the toys too.
