For all of us, those lazy days of summer are just around the corner. I can’t believe how quickly it marches forward. I looked down at the calendar on my phone, and I realized that we are already through the first week of July!
If your schedule has been so incredibly busy, it’s time to slow down and actually embrace those lazy days of summer. Eight weeks until Labour Day means we better start enjoying the beautiful weather that was finally given to us this past week.
So how can we help with the enjoyment of summer? That is an easy one…. Take the stress out of meal preparation, and simply come home to BBQ with the help of our prepared meat products in our Butchers department!
We are hiring for our Tottenham store right now, and every night I have been getting home a bit later than usual as I have been getting to meet all of the wonderful new Team members. My routine this past week has been to get home, light my charcoal BBQ, and to ask my wife “… what am I cooking?”
Here are Some Easy BBQ Meal Ideas to Whip Up in a Pinch!
Vince’s Own Marinated Beef Kebabs
My wife cooked some rice, and I slow cooked the kebabs that had fresh cut vegetables and marinated Vince’s Angus Top Sirloin Beef chunks….. And yes, a glass of red wine! (Thanks to Vince’s Uxbridge).
Vince’s Marinated Garlic Shrimp Skewers on Arugula Salad with Olive Oil and Parmesan Cheese
Incredibly quick to prepare, and the glass of white wine courtesy of Vince’s Uxbridge again was perfect!
Vince’s Own Sausages
My wife and I love the new Chorizo Sausages so I grabbed some buns to go along with the sauerkraut and mustard we had in the fridge and dinner was ready in no time. Thanks to Vince’s in Sharon, I was home quickly with a couple of cans of beer to go with the sausage.
And when you’re all BBQ’d out, we have even easier meals
Vince’s Angus Reserve Beef Stir Fry
Last night I have to admit that I didn’t BBQ, but it was because we had Vince’s Angus Reserve Beef Stir Fry in the fridge. I made a quick purchase of our vegetable stir fry from the produce department and we were set!
The morale to this story, even if you are busy, there is no reason that you can’t pause enjoy the lazy days of summer through the assistance of all of the wonderful prepared meats that are available our stores.
I hope you find some time to pause this summer and enjoy with these easy BBQ meal ideas. Even if is simply for dinner!
