Let's get grilling! A round up of drinks, sides, main dishes and desserts.

Fire up the grill! Who doesn’t love summer and grilling out? School’s out, time for vacation, warm weather, the beach, the pool and cooking outdoors. Grilling is a favorite summer activity for many, especially those in climates that prevent year-round grilling.
Plus, summer holidays, such as Memorial Day, July 4th and Labor Day, are prime pool party, picnic and cookout gatherings where you can fire up the grill with family and friends.
I know we grill many times a week and I’m often looking for new things to try. I’m letting you in on a secret. When I don’t want to cook, I put my husband to work on the grill. He is the grill master!
This round-up collection of beverages, starters, sides, mains and desserts will offer some new ideas for your summer entertaining. Many of these dishes are not only perfect for a backyard barbecue but could be used for tailgating or camping too!
