dads in your life a weekend off. It’s easy to create a fun, memorable weekend away from the
BBQ by creating a menu full of refreshing sides, salads, and main dishes.

Salads are not just for rabbits anymore. A
nice salad filled with hearty toppings makes a
nice complement to any dinner. Choose
toppings that fit the theme of your meal:
anything from BBQ chicken with black beans,
corn and cilantro, to pears strawberries and
If all this cooking seems like too much to
handle don’t worry – you have options! A
good local catering company can do wonders.

weekend such as Father’s Day. A reasonably priced caterer, with delicious food and free
delivery area can make your Father’s Day, and any other holiday, a lovely time filled with
memories and new traditions.
