Who wouldn’t love that perfect summer barbecue party at the comforts of your home?
It was more than a month ago when we had our barbecue party at the small house. And the boys so loved the experience. So last Sunday when we had our grocery, we bought all the essentials we would be needing for our next summer barbecue party. From food to spices, supplies and other essentials, we got all we need at our favorite Rustan’s Supermarket.
Thrilling Snacks and appetizers
The boys like tortilla and nacho chips, and they always prefer them with cheese dips. Fresh fries dipped in Del Monte Ketchup or Heinz Ketchup are an option, too. They have tried vegetable and chicken kebobs once and they loved them as well. This mother and her Big Bunso love shrimps on skewers and it would be great to partner them with grilled corn on a cob.
These are just a few of the snacks and appetizers we will be having for our next Summer Barbecue Get-together. Husband added some condiments he described as “will enhance the flavor of our snacks and appetizers.” He put inside our cart some bottles of Caramba Habanero Extra Hot Sauce, Caramba Chili Verde hot sauce, and Germanos Chili Sauce Olive Oil. He said cheese will always be a rich addition to our spread so he convinced me to try making a dip out of Rustan’s Supermarket’s cheese of the month, the Roquefort. My Big Bunso, who loves to read a lot said that Roquefort is one of the world’s finest blue cheeses.
Hearty main courses
Perfect because we haven’t seen the boys’ cousins for months now. So husband plans to have our Summer Barbecue Party on May 17, the day our Firstborn turns 15 years old. And because it would be our eldest son’s day, we choose only what he loves best to eat. We will be having some tender, juicy, and tasty Baby Back Ribs, Classic Burgers, and Steaks. Pretty good that Rustan’s Supermarket has readily available premium cut beef. And for the marinade, we always go classic with a Mama Sita BBQ Mix. Husband has a special way to make our steak extra tasty; he always combines the BBQ mix with Lea & Perrin’s Worcestershire Sauce.
Of course, any barbecue party wouldn’t be complete without pork barbecue! For the boys who love their pork barbecue a little sweeter, we got a bottle of UFC Ketchup to mix with the marinade. We also got some chicken drumsticks for that juicy grilled chicken made extra special with Nandos Med Periperi Sauce.
Summer is also the best time for ice cream, and my four boys – yes, including the 20-month-old – love ice cream. We checked Rustan’s Supermarket and they got a pretty good selection of ice cream from Ben & Jerry’s, Tillamook, Haagen-Dazs, Klondike, and more. We only got a small tub of Haagen-Dazs because we know if we stock up some, they would surely be gone in a day or two. I plan to return a day or two before May 17 as the last time we checked, some of our favorite ice cream selections are featured in the month’s Summer Loyalty Exclusive promo. That means we could earn bonus points on our loyalty card, too.
Because we are in the mood to make our own juices and smoothies, we plan to make fresh Mango and watermelon fruitshakes. Husband grabbed a few flavored and craft beers for himself and his select friends as these are surely great barbecue matches. He also put inside our cart a fruity Citra Moscardello Moscato when we passed by the Rustan’s Supermarket wine section.
I definitely do not want to worry about washing too many dishes. I would want to enjoy our May 17 Summer Barbecue Party so we opted to grab some paper plates, cups, napkins and utensils. And to make the Summer feel truly within the place, I told husband I will drop by the Rustan’s Supermarket Katipunan branch for some fresh flowers. They would definitely make such beautiful centerpieces which I could place in a recycled soda bottle.
Everything I need to plan that perfect Summer Barbecue Party
I am excited for May 17. It would be a first for our family to have a Summer Barbecue Party with friends and relatives. And what makes it extra special is the fact that it is our eldest’s 15th birthday celebration.
A month from now and Summer will end. How about celebrate summer until it’s here with a barbecue party at home? And for that perfect barbecue party, check out Rustan’s Supermarket. They have monthly promos you would surely enjoy. Plus they’ve got everything you will need for that unforgettable summer barbecue party or any other occasion you would want to celebrate at home.
