Is anyone else stunned that it’s almost June?  And also really happy to have a holiday weekend?

Since Memorial Day can involve social times (and we all know “social times” almost always involve food), there was a great question on the Captain Awkward blog this week about being social with food restrictions.  The comments are long, but absolutely worth it, and if you get nothing else out of it, take this — it is okay to have strong boundaries around your safety when eating with food allergies, and anyone who harasses you or gives you grief is being rude, not the other way around.

But we can at least help let the food be the least awkward part of your gathering.  It’s time for a BBQ Recipe Roundup! First, from our own not-so-secret recipe files:

Main Dishes

Tandoori Chicken Burgers

Falafel Burgers (v)

Chicken Ranch Burgers

Side Dishes

Grilled Salsa (v)

Hominy Salad (v)

Somewhat Germanic Potato Salad

Kiss Me if You Dare Onion Dip

Sheer Magic Spinach Dip (contains soy)

Also, if things do become awkward, then maybe you’re going to need yourself a batch of Wine Smoothies.

Now, from other places on the interwebs, we found some other recipes that might be useful:

Main Dishes

Sriracha, Honey, Lime Chicken Skewers

Avocado Chicken Salad

Grilled Vegetable Stack with Lemon Hummus (v)

Side Dishes

Egg Free Devilish Potatoes

Quinoa Black Bean Salad

Tasty Pasta Salad (contains wheat unless you use gluten free pasta)

Fun Things and Drinks

Summer Ice Cubes (because we need ice cubes with blueberries, mint or lemon frozen in them floating in our drinks, alcoholic or not)

Spicy Vodka Lemonade

Watermelon Lime Sorbet Slices

Watermelon Fruit Cake (although the word cake is misleading…think cake shape)

Anyway, although it’s expected to rain quite a bit here in New Hampshire this weekend, we hope you have a wonderful fun weekend and that you have plenty of safe food options wherever you are!
