The best memories of summertime always tend to revolve around BBQs.
The weather is absolutely perfect, you're surrounded by your favorite people and the food is phenomenal.
Our family always loved to have weekly BBQ get-togethers. My dad would take his time carefully marinating the various meats to be served that evening.
My mother would spend her time busily preparing side dishes in the kitchen, taking time to season each and every one to perfection.
My grandmother would work tirelessly to craft various pies and cakes, making sure to have options for every sweet tooth.
It really was a season we'd all look forward to each year because we knew the good food and good company that awaited us.
Surrounded by so many delicious food options, it was really hard to narrow down which was best.
I absolutely LOVED my dad's marinated chicken strips and my grandmother's homemade key lime pie.
Another thing I loved (and still think about to this day!) was my mother's broccoli slaw.
