Today we’re hosting our first backyard BBQ in Colorado. We haven’t hosted as many parties since we moved here, because we’re always out exploring! I do love entertaining, so one of my focuses this year was to have more people over to the house. With the gorgeous weather we are having, it should be a wonderful evening to be outdoors with friends.

Food is a key part of any party for me! Not only do I truly enjoy the cooking process, but I love sharing my favorites with friends. I will be serving some traditional staples, but I’m also planning on a few new & different dishes for the menu. With my planning for this event, the timing is perfect to share my latest Foodie collection with you! In this month’s collection, I gathered a variety of grilled & finger foods from around the web (including a few from my own personal recipe collection).

To round things out, I also plan on selecting a mocktail from the girls night in collection for guests who might not want our homebrew beer. Or who might want one of each!

Before I close for today, don’t forget about this week’s Meatless Mondays from A-Z challenge. This week we’re cooking with watercress or xocolatl! You can choose any recipe that features one (or both) of those ingredients, although I encourage you to choose one of the recipes shared earlier this month on the cook week.
