Every year, Memorial Day Weekend marks the unofficial beginning of summer. The kids are out of school, the weather is finally heating up and the days are longer. There’s only one thing to do that is perfect for any person of any age during this weekend – cookouts! With many people having that Monday off from work, a Memorial Day Cookout is a wonderful activity for everyone to enjoy!
There are a few things to do to ensure your cookout will be one to remember.
- Plan ahead.
Don’t wait until the last minute to go shopping! You will not be the only one that waited! Buy any nonperishables or entertainment goods in advance to save yourself a lot of hassle and stress before you shop for the more delicate items.
Having plenty of drinks available is a great way to keep a calm and happy mood at the cookout. Whether you choose to provide soda, alcohol or punch, be sure to have plenty of water to keep your guests hydrated.
- Snacks & Appetizers
Remember the apps! No cookout is complete without chips and dip and other finger foods. Snacks and appetizers will keep your guests satisfied until the main course is ready!
The best choice for a cookout is something of which you can cook a lot at the same time. This includes hamburgers, hot dogs, brats, and kebabs!
Whether you build the perfect music playlist, set up yard games like cornhole or set up a TV to watch the baseball game, having some entertainment will keep the mood lively and keep your guests engaged!
