Schools are going to close soon, at the end of this month, and that means summer vacation in full force. You don’t have to go anywhere to have a blast. At times for easy fun in the sun, you can easily prepare this menu and make your patio a venue for this crowd-pleasing meal. I made cauliflower chickpea burger to go with Ball Park Tailgaters Crustini buns, Tandoori chicken bites with Tyson Chicken breasts, grilled hotdogs with Ball Park Beef Franks and Chocolate chip muffins with Country Crock original tub, everything you can buy it from your local Sam’s club .
I like to shop at Sam’s club because you can get entire month worth of products at affordable prices and they even provide samples most of time. Also, I can get Tyson, Unilever and Ball Park Buns products there. I bought a few products from each brand.
I love a good veggie burger always, so made this protein rich cauliflower and chickpea burger, when the grills fill up with other goodies, I bake a batch of this burgers. Even-die hard meat burger fan like my hubby love to taste it. This simple recipe is made with cauliflower, chickpeas and spices. It is filling, hearty meal with sweet Ball Park Tailgaters Crustini buns.
Being spice lover, whenever I get good chicken breast pieces I love to make tandoori chicken kaboobs when firing the up grill. For this you need Tyson All Natural Boneless Skinless Chicken breast which you can find in the frozen food section of the Sam’s club.
Just cut them into pieces and marinate with tandoori spice mix and grill or broil or cook it according to your convenience.
My kids love simple grilled hotdogs with less mustard and extra ketchup as one of their favorites, so I made that too with Ball Park Beef Franks .
Chocolate chip muffins are for my chocolate chips lovers, my daughter and son. For them any dessert should come with chocolate chips no matter whether it is ice cream or cookies, cake or muffins. So, I made muffins with Country Crock tub which turned out to be one of their favorites. Both asked me “Mamma can you make more muffins”. Even they booked some muffins for Santa. As a mother what else do you want when your little guys are telling you, that you made good food.
When you decide to have a family get together or backyard blasts for this summer, make sure to shop at local Sam’s club and buy Tyson, Ballpark, Country Crock tub and make this delicious meal. Summer is a time to enjoy the sun with good food and make memories.
