Easy Outdoor Eats and Entertaining Ideas are just what you need to make the perfect end to your summer!
Summer is not over yet. I am not letting one ounce of it slip away. I spoke briefly about this in my post yesterday. There are some people out there already starting to talk about pumpkin spice lattes and Halloween. Stop right there, people. It is still VERY much summer and there is still outdoor entertaining to be had!
Summertime is my favorite and any excuse to be outside with friends enjoying the weather, conversation and food, on the back patio, is right up my alley. I will soak up every last bit of sun until the first leaf falls off the trees. Long live summer!
We’ve had such a great summer so far. Long days spent at the pool, staying up WAY past our bedtime and cookouts with friends.
Here are some Easy Outdoor Eats and Entertaining Ideas for you to enjoy the rest of what summer has to offer:
- Don’t forget the kids! Yes, some parties are for adults only, but as the summer winds down, include the kids too. Invite the neighborhood over and throw a Back to School bash. Set out kid friendly food and don’t forget the dessert. We absolutely love these Froozer pops. They’re made with 100% fruit, with no added sugar, juice or concentrate. There are no preservatives or GMO’s in their convenient, easy grab and go tube. They select fruit at their peak of ripeness, flash freeze them and turn them into delicious and nutritious treats both kids and adults love! Our freezer is stocked with them right now and yours can be too.

- Delicious food is a MUST! I recommend Food, Health, and Happiness by Oprah Winfrey. Oprah’s cookbook is packed with 115 recipes for a happier and healthier you! From soup, greens and a section on healthy indulgence, this cookbook has it all. It’s jam packed with drool worthy food and stunning photography. It also includes nutritional information which is something I look for in a cookbook as guidance in my own kitchen. Look for recipes that are easy to cook, can withstand the heat and bring people together.
Check out Oprah Winfrey’s book here, and grab yourself a copy. You’re sure to find something to cook all year long!
- Bring the cooking outdoors. There is nothing better than firing up the grill to make some mouthwatering food. Just the smell alone can bring people together. Don’t try anything too complicated so you are stuck in the kitchen playing chef while your guests are left outside to entertain themselves. Pick a few different dishes to appease everyone and don’t forget to include those who may have dietary restrictions. Start with a light salad, a few different types of meat, fish and vegetables. Next time you’re at the store, grab a bottle of PAM: Cooking Spray. It’s new and improved and features no Artificial Colors, Flavors, or Preservatives. It’s superior non stick leaves no cleanup so you can spend more time enjoying yourself than cleaning up after everyone! Now that’s a win-win!
Take a peek at Pam’s website where you’ll find products, recipes and tips perfect for your all your entertaining needs.
- Prep ahead of time. The night before, set everything out that’s needed during the party. Prep all your food so it’s ready to cook. Set out plates, napkins, cups and party decor so you can set the scene before guests arrive. Prepare your grill. Make sure you have charcoal and a great set of grilling tools and accessories. Have them out by the grill, so they are at you’re ready. We love this 3PC Stainless Steel BBQ Tool Set from TrueValue. It includes a basting brush, tongs, and 4 in 1 spatula. 4 in 1 spatula is a turner, meat tenderizer, bottle opener, and knife edge all in one tool.
It’s a True value exclusive so grabs your today!
