What To Bring To a Cookout?

Cookout Combination

It’s cookout season!

Let’s say you’re INVITED to a cookout instead of hosting one.

It could happen.

What do you bring?

Baked Beans

You could start with a side dish like baked beans, macaroni and cheese or a trusty potato salad.

Those are always good contributions.

You could also bring wine. You can never have enough wine at a get-together.

Steak and Wine Pairings

And if you know what the main course is, try a great wine pairing from this guide. It’s always a bonus to bring the PERFECT wine!

Still not satisfied? Just ask the chef! The host may have something in mind and you can make sure what you bring will be eaten and enjoyed.

Simple!

Father’s Day Activity Ideas

Father's Day Cookout

Wondering what to do with Dad to let him know he’s special on Father’s Day?

Gifts are wonderful but experiences are pretty great, too!

How about taking him to a festival? If you’re in the KC area, the Boulevardia festival starts on June 19th. This event celebrates beer, food (read: steaks) and music in a vibrant locale. How can you go wrong?

Find something similar in your area or take Dad to a baseball game. Or, you can eat like you’re at the ballpark at home with the official steakburgers of the Kansas City Royals. Order ‘em and cook ‘em up!

You could also have a backyard cookout with all his favorites – Porterhouse steak, T-bones, even filet mignon. Pretty much, if steaks are on the menu, he’s bound to love it!

So, what kind of activities are YOU planning for Father’s Day?

Memorial Day Must Haves

Memorial Day Tbones, Filet Mignon, Kansas City Strip Steaks and Chicken Breasts

Soon enough Memorial Day will be upon us. It’s time to honor those who’ve made the ultimate sacrifice and enjoy some family time.

And family time ALWAYS includes food. It’s just a given.

My Memorial Day feast absolutely must include steaks, steakburgers, all-beef hot dogs and brats.

People will revolt if not.

But the variety of steaks is where I can get creative. I like to serve an array of meats from Filet Mignon and Kansas City Strip Steak to Wagyu Beef. Who could complain about that?

In my backyard, there’s always something for everyone. And that means everybody’s happy.

I can’t think of a better way to spend a holiday!
