It wouldn’t be Memorial Day without a BBQ, and BBQs at Josh’s parents’ house are always quite the event. It doesn’t matter how many people come, or who shows up unexpectedly, there will always be enough food and tons of leftovers. Josh’s dad grilled up a feast of hamburgers, hot dogs, ribs, salmon and chicken.
He also grilled some pineapple for the burgers, corn on the cob, and a basket of asparagus that we seasoned with olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper, and then covered with freshly grated parmesan at the end. Those were a huge hit – a giant platter was cleared off in just minutes.
There was also potato salad, macaroni salad, cole slaw, regular salad, and all the standard fixings. Josh made a batch of fresh guacamole to snack on while we waited for everything to come off the grill. The amount of food we ate was just insane!
After stuffing ourselves silly, we had to have dessert, of course. It wouldn’t be a BBQ without fresh seedless watermelon.
For the people craving sweets, there was chocolate cake, coffee cake, and chocolate chip cookies.
And finally, Josh’s cousins brought over Rita’s Italian Ices in lemon, mint chocolate chip, chocolate, black cherry, and sugar free cherry. Icy and refreshing, they were the perfect way to end the night.
