The kids are out of school and it's time to kick summer-time fun into full gear. We are Canadian, and as Canadians we try to jam as much summer fun as we can into our hot and hazy summer!
Trips to the beach, roasting marshmellows over a campfire, summer over-night camps, day camps at the local library and community center, and visiting Grandpa's farm - all are some of the fun activities which we will enjoy over the next couple of months. But, most importantly we eat....and enjoy being outdoors with family and friends!
With Canada Day being upon us, I've been busy planning a little weekend get-together, and a little inspiration never hurts. Join me in checking out some fun grilling recipes brought to us by Canada's magazine, Canadian Living. Since I spoke last about our grilling obsession, I see that they have added eight new recipes, which you might like to pull some inspiration from.
Summer get-togethers around my home revolve around the barbeque grill and all the tasty food which come from it. This weekend we are planning lots of hot dogs and hamburgers. For our get-together, we have pulled pork on the menu. On the side we plan to serve crisp salads and for dessert a Canada Day themed cake, of course.
To go a long with our hot dogs, hamburgers and pulled pork we are going to need a lot of buns. Weston Bakeries has introduced their new Wonder+ SimplyFree buns just in time for summer grilling. Wonder+ SimplyFree are soft white buns. (which we all love) But here's the difference - Wonder+ SimplyFree is the first national brand to offer buns free of artificial preservatives, artificial colours, and artificial flavours. There is no high fructose corn syrup in Wonder+ SimplyFree, and like all Wonder Bread products they are made with unbleached wheat flour. Look for the green packaging when in stores. *tip - I saw Wonder+ SimplyFree buns on sale at the Independent Grocer for 2/$5.*
After all the buns are eaten, remember to take a look on specially marked packaging for a PIN#, which you can enter to win a $5000 barbeque prize package!
Have a fun-filled Canada Day weekend, celebrating the true north strong and free!
