Happy Memorial Day!  Today we had a simple BBQ with Bison Burgers, homemade guacamole, chips and salsa, strawberries, cherries, corn on the cob, apple pie, brownies, and ice cream balls.  I saw the ice cream balls in the new issue of Martha Stewart.  We just rolled some vanilla ice cream in sprinkles and then stuck a popsicle stick in them.  Martha put wooden spoons in hers.  It was great for the kids since they ate them off the stick.  I think we will do more of those in the summer.  
The guacamole recipe came from Food Network.  It is also in one of the Barefoot Contessa Cookbooks.  www.foodnetwork.com/food/recipes/recipe/0,,FOOD_9936_23369,00.htm
The brownies came from the Hershey’s website.  The brownies are supposed to be in a jar but we did them just like a normal mix.  We used only 1 cup of semi sweet chocolate chips and thought that was plenty.  They would be even yummier with the other chips though. http://www.hersheys.com/recipes/recipes/detail.asp?id=8111&page=1&per=912
Everything was really yummy!
