I have two daughters embarking on new chapters of their lives come September. Emily is graduating to grade nine, and Jillian will be a graduate of kindergarten, to go to grade one!
Oy! How does a mother slow down the passage of time?
However I feel about the years slipping quickly away, I realize that these special graduations deserve recognition and a celebration.
Of course, because I am a proud #LMDconnector, I naturally turn once again to Life Made Delicious to search for easy recipe ideas suited perfectly to my graduation celebrations.
We love casual meals and are most comfortable eating in a relaxed environment, and found inspiration in Top 10 BBQ Recipes on a Bun.
A couple of the contenders....
Grilled Barbecue Subs
Grilled Corn-Stuffed Turkey Burgers
And, as a fun treat for the girls, I thought they would enjoy Brownies on a Stick.
It looks like a sultry end to June, so these kind of meals are perfect. After all, the graduates and mom doesn't want to go frazzled to the ceremonies. Easy recipes and easy meals go hand in hand as we wrap up successful school years!
As my girls head out on new adventures and to change the world in their own ways, this mom is so proud. I am proud of all they have achieved, and all they have yet to accomplish.
Congratulations to all graduates of 2012!
