Memorial Day weekend kicked off the summer barbecuing season!
Here are some great recipes and barbecue tips for fantastic cook outs all summer long…
My Life as a Realtor ~
Lot’s of work to do again today and I’m happy to report that the rain and clouds are gone and it is an absolute gorgeous day!! Spring isn’t until Saturday, although it has arrived today – Yeah!
Here is a pic of a beautiful – and thawed – Ball Pond…
As I made my way to the office, I realized quickly that I was over dressed. This happens every Spring - I’m afraid of being cold, so I still wear turtle necks and coats and sweat my buns off!
When I arrived home, my mom and David had made a wonderful dinner – our very 1st barbecue of the season – and – we even ate outside…
My Life as a Realtor ~
It’s Saturday – Appointment making day for a client – we’ll be viewing some homes on Monday.
In the morning, Jonathan had his New Fairfield Soccer photos at the New Fairfield High School.
Worked on my Blog – then baked a cake and made pasta salad to take to my brother-in-laws in Mt. Vernon, NY for a barbecue…
Yummy BBQ Chicken
Since many of us will be cooking out this long, Labor Day weekend, Kraft Foods has some yummy ideas.

My Life as a Realtor ~
It’s Saturday, the first day in August and we’re busy cleaning and organizing – something I do everyday, although today we’re taking advantage of some time we have before heading over to my sister’s house for a barbecue. Joe is installing a closet organizer in Jonathan’s room – he was the only one without an organizer and what a huge difference it will make!
Closet Organizer – Purchased at Home Depot
I’m multi-tasking, which I enjoy since I seem to do well when I’m under pressure! I’m cleaning, e-mailing, talking with clients – one new client that needs a mortgage broker to assist her. I’m making a simple pasta salad for the BBQ – flew to Shaw’s – once again. Boy do I spend alot of time… and money grocery shopping.
While I was at Shaw’s, I spoke with a client, verifying that she received a call from our appointment scheduling company, AccuShow, regarding an afternoon showing – her first – for her home tomorrow. She did not, so I spent my shopping time on my cell – but all was taken care of and that is why I always push to get things done asap - don’t leave for later, what you can do now!

We had an awesome time at my sister’s – with the exception of my 4 new mosquitoe bites. The kids went into the pool and we ate and drank and had lots of laughs. We are trying to plan a camp out at our house next weekend with my sister, brother and their families. All the older kids will sleep in the tent in the woods in our back yard and the adults and little ones will sleep in doors. I can’t wait! Note to self… lot’s of bug spray needed.

Our celebration went very well, it continued until the wee hours with a bon fire and smores and some of my guest that live near by returned the next day for another barbecue. I LOVE the summer!

I am really looking forward to this 4th of July’s Barbecue. We have always had family over for New Years Eve and New Years Day – 23 years and running! We’ve added a few more holidays since moving to Connecticut – Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve ~ and 4th of July!

Here in Connecticut, Fireworks are allowed – of course the legal ones that can be purchased in the local Super Markets and stores, which tend to be colorful and make more of POP-POP sound than the KABOOM ones seen at Fireworkshows. Non the less, the kids ~ and adults ~ love it! We wait until dark and have a BLAST! and, during that entire time – no pesty mosquitoes or bats flying over us!
Please remember to BE SAFE – Here are some Fireworks Safety Tips from Examiner.com

Spring has sprung – bringing warm weather – and warm weather attracts everyone outdoors! One of our favorite things to do outdoors is BARBECUE! Although, Springweather can be tricky – one day we’re in the 60′s, the next could be in the 40′s! Being able to cook delish burgers indoors in great! Here are some awesome recipes -

The Food Network has a ton of recipes on line. There are also tips to eating healthier, quick and easy recipes, videos and a “My Recipe Box” to keep all your favorites.
A few that I’m choosing from are:
- Grilled Avocado, Tomato, Red Onion Salad
- Grilled Eggplant with Fresh Ricotta and Grilled Tomato-Basil Relish
- Grilled Meats and Vegetables over Saffron Orzo
- The Ultimate Barbecued Chicken
- The Burger Bar
So many to choose from! Many of my buyers, when looking at potential homes, make sure the deck or patio have enough room to fit a grill and table with chairs.
Thanks to GOOGLE IMAGERY
Can you believe it’s Memorial Day – weekend already! I tend to associate this time with going to the beach – which most people do – BUT, it’s too cold! Although, it’s perfect weather for having the family over for a barbecue!
If your looking for tips on what to make – or what to bring – The Food Network has great ideas like – Corn, Avocado & Tomato Salad, Long Island Green Tea and Banana Smores! One good tip is to maybe just pick 1 or 2 new recipes to incorporate into your menu. Also, plan ahead, make a list and have the kids help. And most importantly, make sure your guests have a designated driver.
My husband and I will be having our families over – his coming up from Mount Vernon, NY and my brother coming from Brookfield, CT and my sister making a very long trip from her home to mine… just 5 minutes away in New Fairfield, CT!
I wish you and your family a happy and safe Memorial Day – Weekend!
