Labor Day Family Grilling and Holiday Weekend Fun

Just a few weeks ago we had our family picnic/barbecue at a beautiful park where the sun glistened on the water, the boats sailed by, people were fishing, families gathered at tables and music filled the air. It was a beautiful day. The weather was perfect and our table had the comfort of a big tree, no constant swatting of bees/flies - it was perfect.

When it comes to cooking and eating, we thoroughly enjoy the whole experience. The planning that we put into these fun family events are carefully considered, complete with a list and a meeting. The most important thing is the food. What's on the menu? Naturally, we have the beef burgers, beef hot dogs, chicken, ribs, corn, sodas, chips, fruits, juices, water, etc. On other occasions, we have had other healthy barbecue/grilling moments with chicken kebabs, shrimp kebabs, salmon, vegetables, fruit salad and other healthy foods. However, there are many alternatives to enjoying a fun family time where you can feature more healthy items on the menu. In fact, our next barbecue/picnic will have a variety of healthier items which we will devour just the same :-)

As Labor Day weekend is here, for some, the grilling will begin on Saturday and end on Monday. Here are a few videos that will give you great alternatives to enjoy your holiday grilling without the after guilt ;-) Bring your volleyball, football, frisbee, cards, or any games that will engage others and have a great family fun time.
