Back Yard Barbeque

Barbeques are my second-most favorite activity in the summertime (sunbathing is #1). Last weekend I went home to visit my parents for a get-away weekend in the country, and it was lovely. It's so quiet there, the air smells sweeter, and the pace is much slower. So for a Sunday lunch, my dad cooked out on the grill, and we enjoyed our lunch on the back porch, picnic table included.

Of course we had a smorgasbord of food, from cheeseburgers to grilled chicken with barbeque sauce. Sides included Five Bean Salad, pasta salad (the cute little shells!), and pretzels with honey mustard. I honestly cannot think of a better meal for the summertime! And my mother made delicious daiquiris: she just threw strawberries, blueberries, POM, mango nectar, and rum into a blender, and voila, a nice berry cocktail. After such a yummy meal, you may want to go into a food coma, like my dad in his hammock (one of my favorite summer images!). Try to beat that for the perfect summer weekend!
