Memorial Weekend BBQ

It's time to fire up the grill for a BBQ.  Red, white, blue and you!!!

Bring what you would like to grill and drink.  I will organize a list of side dishes, salads, etc. in the next week or so.

Hopefully the weather will we beautiful so we can jump in the pool and play some pool volleyball.

Update: As of now the party is still on with the weather being partly sunny.  Maybe we all need to do a "sun dance".

Below is a list of suggested items.

Appetizers:  your choice

Meats:  Chicken, hamb. brats, ribs, etc.  Jerry & I will have hot dogs on hand.

Sides:  Baked beans, deviled eggs, corn on the cob. etc.

Salads: coleslaw, potato salad, pasta salad, mac. salad

Vegi tray  (1)  we don't need 10

Fruit:  Watermelon, fruit salad, strawberries, fruit soaked in Vodka :-)

Desserts:  whatever you want

Remember to bring what you would like to drink, if you want to bring your own meat to grill, that's fine too.

If the weather is nasty, I will cancel and host another BBQ when the weather improves.

    What a great way to start off the Memorial Day Weekend. A big thanks to the hosts for the wonderful venue, and all the friendly folks who gathered and believed it wouldn't rain! (The sacrafices to the hot tub and fire pit may have helped.)

    I'm on the phone with my sister in NY to point out all the food, and features at Cindy & Jerry's home and how great the party was. I said there are 13 pictures, and she says I see more, and then I start seeing Sharon is in upload mode, lol. As we spoke, pictures kept coming in! Thanks to everyone that took pictures for fun memories;)

    What can I say..awesome party! A big Thank You! to Kenan for doing such a terrific job cleaning my kitchen and keeping up with the dishes. I'll get a lost & found list going in the next hour or so. I agree with Grace and the kitchen, our lips are sealed. :-)

    What a great day & evening! A big thank you to Cindy & Jerry!! So many people attend, there are mini-parties going on all over their property, inside and out. The kitchen party may be entitled: "What happens in the kitchen, stays in the kitchen:)". Kenan was a wonderful addition to the party in so many ways, a lot fun and a true gentleman, thank you for sending me in the right direction to get home!! John Brent was a super good sport:)

    i just popped one of the Bratwursts (i guess that will be mine to eat) all others OK hopefully... pre boiling them in beer as well as a few other ingredients/ preparing them for a quick browning on the grill... Have rum brownies all ready... Should i be bringing condiments? I am assuming there will be ample already...

    May 25, 2013

    • Cheryl M.

      yum!

      May 25, 2013

    • Kenan

      thanks Cindy... should i bring horse radish for those crazys that like hot stuff? and i purchased some buns as well they are a perfect for these extra large bratwurst...

      May 25, 2013

  • Cheryl M.

    Hi Cindy, I am still planning on coming today. Thanks for everything you have done to put this party together to honor the Memorial Day Holiday....I may be bringing a friend not sure if she can go yet. Thanks again. :)

    I've gone old school and made a 5-bean salad... see you all there! (My favorite weather site now says we're down to a 20% chance of rain after 3:00. Sounds like a great NW weekend!)

    May 25, 2013

  • Gail

    Someone always forgets something Kenan so I am sure your Bratwurst would be more than welcome----they sound really good so you might have people fighting over them LOL

    Rain or Sun I'm going to have a good time, we live in Washington and take the good with bad I'm not going to melt!!!! ;-)

  • Marcia

    The weather isn't sounding like it will be in our favor. Really was looking forward to a fun time but don't like being wet and cold.

    May 24, 2013

  • Penny

    Cindy, I can imagine that turning the pool temp up is expensive, so with the weather cool and uncertain I would wait. Brave souls can play volleyball, especially after a few drinks.

    May 24, 2013

    • Cindy

      The pool temp now is 78, which is comfortable to me. We'll see what the weather is like in the morning, if it's sunny we might turn up the heat a little more, if not, people just might need to drink more! Yes! people need to drink more is the answer.

      May 24, 2013

  • Jerry

    Whoever is doing the "Rain Dance", will you please quite!

    2 · May 24, 2013

    • Grace

      As long as you & Cindy are good to go, I'm still in. I'm sure you've both already done a lot to prep for tomorrow. Weather.com says it will be 63 w/p.m. showers. While it's not the best weather, a person can still bbq, go in the pool or hot tub, even if there is light rain, you'll be wet already:) I'm sure the weather conditions will change 10x between now & Sat. Even Sequim will have the same weather.

      May 24, 2013

    • Carolyn

      Actually I thought the sun dancers were doing a good job because today was better than predicted.

      May 24, 2013

  • Darlene G

    Weather forecast supposed to be 61 and sunny tomorrow. Fingers crossed.

    May 24, 2013

  • Roger

    I'm overbooked. Have fun.

    May 24, 2013

  • Sunshine

    i will be about an hour late and am still pondering what i will be bringing, but i'm sure it will be good:) see you guys tomorrow.

    May 24, 2013

  • Carolyn

    I see no way to change my rsvp to remove my +1 without removing myself. So if there's anyone that needs to add someone, there's a +1 available!

    May 23, 2013

    • Cheryl M.

      Yes, I have a friend Celia that wants to go can I bring her? Thanks Cheryl

      May 24, 2013

    • Kenan

      Celia is invited if she is willing to marry me.... looking for a wife here.. just kidding..

      May 24, 2013

  • Kenan

    OK you guy's.. i am the dude bringing Rum Brownies (they are soaking as I type)... I also just picked up a half dozen Bratwurst (gourmet of course)... just want to know if i should bring them (don't want to overwhelm BBQ with meat) dont like waste... so please give me feed back... If wanted i plan to pre-cook them in a mixture of dark beer, onions, and garlic as well as a dash of Dijon mustard... you will love them... if not needed, i will freeze them for another BBQ. I am not planning on eating myself.. doing the diet thing (except for a beer or two)... go to do a out of state wedding and i need to make sure i can fit in one of my suits..

    If the BBQ is still on, I will bring a Marionberry pie.

    2 · May 24, 2013

  • Beth

    Think I'll bring shrimp with that good pico de gallo that I brought last time - nice and spicy!

    May 23, 2013

  • Kenan

    i am planning on bringing homemade rum brownies for the alcohol likers in the group... each brownie is like a shot.. As well as bringing either shrimp cocktail or i could bring pre-cooked (by me) beer bratwurst.. all they will need is a quick browning on the BBQ... one question.. what is the parking situation at the location? it will tell me the car i should bring..

    1 · May 22, 2013

    • Carole

      I see. I will take one to go maybe...save it for later. Im trying to diet down. I have a bodyfat assesment coming up next Friday and Im a bit scurd. :0)

      May 23, 2013

    • Beth

      These sound great!

      May 23, 2013

  • Cindy

    The pool is warm, but if I crank it up to 85 degrees, how many people will get in and play volleyball. Would like an idea of how many will get in before I heat it up more. Hot tub is at 104

    2 · May 22, 2013

    • wadood

      Sounds like fun.. will be there

      May 23, 2013

    I will bring a watermelon.

    May 20, 2013

    • Carole

      Last time I had jello shots was exactly a year ago and that was the end of that for me. To this day, I still cannot even fathom the thought...I ruined it for myself. Isnt there watermelon vodka?

      May 22, 2013

    • Mark O

      Ok Carole we will have Jello shot rehab. Program for you...some non-alcoholic sugar free jello shots too...so hopefully one day you will regain this important party skill.

      1 · May 23, 2013

  • Darlene G

    I'll bring slow a crockpot of pulled pork w/rolls and fruit kabobs.

    3 · May 22, 2013

  • Gail

    I shall be bringing a Sauerkraut Salad which can also be a topping for the hot dogs if anyone brings them.

    I am already doing a "sun dance" ---- will keep dancing till the sun shines for us--------(I tried wiggling my nose and that didn't work!!!)
