Summertime! Nothing quite kicks off Summer like Memorial Day here in the US! Memorial Day is just the beginning of Summertime fun! Beach, pool, School Vacation, Firefly’s, Parades, Fireworks, 4th of July, Labor Day and loads of BBQ’s. Today we kicked our heading to watch the Memorial Day parade on Main Street! Followed by fun in the sun at a BBQ Pool Party! Woohoo! We love having people come round for our pool party – it’s great fun for adults and kids! It does take quite a bit of organizing but it’s totally worth it when you see everyone’s happy faces. This year was made much easier by the fact that I found a wide array of poolside towel rack options which meant that I didn’t have to go around picking up all the used towels that gather on the floor. Just hang up all the towels and the sun will dry them for you in no time. Perfect for us.
Wishing all my US friends a Happy Memorial Day and cheers to a wonderful Summer to everyone!
Here’s what’s cooking for our BBQ Pool Party!
Mexican Bread Bowl
Pesto Brie Spread
Pigs in a Blanket Dunkers
This really might be one of the easiest appetizer recipes ever! It is so simple and one that everyone loves if they like jalapeño popper! This is a healthier version without the cheese, breading and frying. Poppers are easy to transport to a BBQ or make ahead of time. They can be cooked ahead of time and served at room temperature. Your guest will love these! These jalapeño poppers are Paleo, Whole 30, Ketos, gluten- free, and dairy- free! Enjoy!! Get the recipe…
