Grillin it up menu for Memorial Day!

Tis' the Season of turning of our hot ovens and heating up the grill. Summer time is for getting outside and enjoying the beautiful weather. Cooking is no exception...
I have put together some great Memorial Day grilling ideas along with other easy summer recipes.
 
First lets start with the BEST summer drink (in my opinion)
 Sonic's Cherry Limeade's
 
 What You Need:
1 can of limeade concentrate
1-2 liter bottle of sprite
Juice from 1-10 ounce jar of maraschino cherries
Lime to slice and put in punch (optional)
*add a cherry in the drinking glass to make it look complete*
 
Simply mix it all together and your done. SO SO EASY!
 
Dinner:
Grilled Pineapple-Chicken Kabobs Packets:

What You Need:
1/3 cup pineapple preserves
2 tablespoons of packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1/4 teaspoon of crushed red pepper
4 boneless, skinless chicken breast cut into cubes
1 red bell pepper cut into cubes
1 green bell pepper cut into cubes
1 cup pineapple chunks
1/4 teaspoon of salt

Heat gas or charcoal grill. In small bowl, stir together pineapple preserves, brown sugar, soy sauce and crushed red pepper.
Cut 4 (24x12-inch) sheets of foil. Divide chicken, bell peppers, pineapple chunks and pineapple preserves mixture among foil sheets. Sprinkle with salt.
Bring up 2 sides of foil so edges meet. Seal edges, making tight 1/2-inch fold; fold again, allowing space for heat circulation and expansion. Fold other sides to seal.
Place packets on grill over medium heat. Cover grill; cook 6 minutes. Using tongs, carefully turn packets over, taking care not to puncture foil. Cook 10 to 12 minutes longer or until chicken is no longer pink in center and vegetables are crisp-tender.


Dinner:
Hamburgers & Hot dogs
(I'm not going to complain... especially with my hubby doing the grilling he is THE BEST!!!)
 
 
Making it Simple: Sides
*Slice up a big juicy watermelon and add a stick (no one can complain about that!)
I found this cute idea on A Pretty Life
 
*Corn on the cob (Hamblin family favorite!)

*Chips & Chip Dip
What You Need:
1 large package of regular cream cheese
1 carton of cottage cheese
1 tablespoon green onion-chopped
1/2 pint whipping cream
1 bag of regular potato chips
 
Mix together cream cheese and cottage cheese. Add green onion. Beat and add in 1/2 pint whipping cream. Easy and Yummy!
 
 Dessert: NO BAKING!!!
Oreo Chocolate Chip Crunch Cake
 
What You Need:
1 package regular Oreo Cookies- about 36
6 tablespoons melted butter
1- 8 ounce package cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons cold milk
1- 12 ounce tub cool whip, divided
2 (3.9 ounce) packages chocolate instant pudding
3 1/4 cups cold milk
1 1/2 cups mini chocolate chips
 
Begin by crushing 36 Oreo cookies. Place them in a large Ziploc bag and crush them with a rolling pin. When the Oreo's have turned into fine crumbs, you are done.
Transfer the Oreo crumbs to a large bowl. Stir in 6 tablespoons melted butter and use a fork to incorporate the butter into the cookie crumbs. When the butter is distributed, transfer the mixture to a 9 × 13 inch baking dish. Press the crumbs into the bottom of the pan. Place the pan in the refrigerator while you work on the additional layers.
Mix the cream cheese with a mixer until light and fluffy. Add in 2 Tablespoons of milk, and sugar, and mix well. Stir in 1 and 1/4 cups Cool Whip. Spread this mixture over the crust.
In a bowl, combine chocolate instant pudding with 3 and 1/4 cups cold milk. Whisk for several minutes until the pudding starts to thicken. Use a spatula to spread the mixture over the previous cream cheese layer. Allow the dessert to rest for about 5 minutes so that the pudding can firm up further.
Spread the remaining Cool Whip over the top. Sprinkle mini chocolate chips evenly over the top. Place in the freezer for 1 hour, or the refrigerator for 4 hours before serving.
 

*Now that you have the perfect grilling menu, I hope you enjoy your Memorial Day weekend. I know I will! Don't forget to remember and thank all those amazing people that serve us and our Country!
THANKS!!!
