School's Back Bash

I wanted to call this little virtual cook-out an End of Summer Bash, but it's really not the end of summer at all.

My thermostat makes sure I'm aware of that fact, so I decided to call it a School's Back Bash.  Not as catchy I know, but it's early and I've only had one cup of coffee.

Every now and then I like to peruse the pages of my favorite magazine, Southern Living, and their website to come up with virtual party ideas.

So, if we were all meeting up this weekend for a get-together, let's see what would be on the menu, shall we....

The main theme of this party is a Low Country Boil - makes my mouth water just looking at it.

We would also have some yummy grilled tomatoes with basil.

Some watermelon salad.

 We'd have a little grilled pound cake for dessert.

Some cool refreshing lemonade iced tea.

Where would all of this take place, you ask?
What about dining by this beautiful waterfall?

And, afterwards (or during) all of the kids could go down & play in the lake.

Sounds like the perfect weekend cook-out to me.
Wouldn't it be fun if we could actually do it?

Thanks for playing along & enjoy your weekend.

He chicka...How funny, we just had a low country boil, also known as Frogmore stew a few weekends ago! It was so yummy.

Mama must have had the same issue of SL b/c she made that watermelon salad too!! It sounds rather weird at first but it was yummylicious!!
