The long weekend is officially here! What do you have planned?

My family will be enjoying the weekend at home. We plan to tackle some gardening, and transition my little guy from the crib to the toddler bed.

If you were to ask me 5 to 6 years ago how I would be spending the long weekend, I would tell you that you could find me on the patio or celebrating with a BBQ on the deck among friends. Oh how the times change.

Reality is if I actually had a liveable backyard space right now that you probably would find relaxing, and enjoying a family barbecue. Did I mention I can’t wait to get graded, and finally design my brand spankin’ new backyard?! I’m having barbecue withdrawals!

Some barbecue-style recipes that I can’t wait to try are:

Nannny’s Chicken & Ribs – featured on Life in Pleasantville

BBQ Chicken Wings – featured on Kitchen Counter Chronicles

Beef with Bearnaise Sauce – featured on Ottawa Valley Moms

Apple Bacon Coleslaw – featured on Ghetto Foodie

What is your favourite meal to barbecue? Or, what is your favourite side dish to serve at a BBQ?

    Family BBQs are my favourite! Do you know whether you’ll be able to work on/finish your backyard in the summer?

    It was so cold here this weekend that we had to forego our BBQs – just couldn’t get into the mood!
