Since summer is here, I thought it would be really fun to invite everyone to a BBQ, especially since the Fourth of July is right around the corner and lots of people will be grilling. I love to cook and eat outdoors. There's something about the smell of food cooking on the grill that's so inviting and enticing.
I wrote a BBQ cookbook, Best of the Barbecues, a way long time ago filled with 369 recipes for everything from drinks to desserts and everything in between that you could possibly ever
want to eat, drink, and enjoy at your outdoor barbecue.
The recipes include all kinds of dips
and finger foods, a bit of the bubbly, milkshakes, bean salads, potato salads, macaroni salads, lots of veggies, both grilled and on the side, burgers... of course!, chicken, beef, fish, and steak, breads and buns because you need something to put your burger or hot dog in, delicious desserts like key lime pie, dirt cake, hot fudge sundaes, fruity things, and sauces, rubs, and marinades.
The book has been out of print for a while; I'm planning to bring it back into print. I have a few copies left and I'd like to give one to you. All you have to do is come to my BBQ and bring food to share. You can bring whatever you want--drinks, salads, veggies, meat, desserts--as long as it ties in with a BBQ and you can bring more
than one dish. BTW, I'm also planning to update the book before
I republish it, so your recipe(s) will be included.
Since a lot of people will be grilling over the holiday weekend, and won't have pics or a post on their blog yet, here's how you can win: Blog about the BBQ and invite all your readers to come to the BBQ. Include the badge and a link to this post. Leave a comment with a link to your post. After you grill, post your BBQ pics and recipes on your blog, then leave another comment with the link to your BBQ post. I can collect the pics and recipes from your blog. Or if you
have a BBQ recipe in your archives, just do a quick, short current post with your pic, the badge, and a link to this post. I'll post the round-up on July 10th and pick the winner at random.
You're all invited to my BBQ. Let's get grilling.
