BBQ in a snap


So yesterday we had an awesome barbecue, and I thought I would share it with you! And the cool part is we threw it together in less than 20 minutes! So here's what we had:

A: Chicken Breast and Hotdogs in Hunts Honey Mustard Barbecue Sauce
B:Yummy fresh corn
C:Crinkle Cut French Fries....Stop and Shop special
D:New Kosher Special Sweet and Sour Sauce
(Incidentally the best Chinese restaurant in the world)
E: Spicy Sweet Potato Fries
F.Three Bean Salad
G: Coleslaw
H: Hamburger Chips Dill Pickles


Spicy Sweet Potato Fries
3 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced into french fry shapes

Pam cooking spray
Garlic Powder
Cajun Seasoning

Heat oven to 450. Spread sweet potato slices in a cookie sheet in a single layer. Spray slices with pam. Sprinkle seasonings over. Bake uncovered for about 20 minutes, or until sweet potatoes are soft.

Three  Bean Salad
1 pound  fresh green beans*
1 can chick peas ( garbanzo beans)
1 can baby corn
1 red onion, diced
4 stalks celery, diced small
3 tablespoons vinegar
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon olive oil
salt and pepper to taste

Bring 4 inches of water to a boil. Meanwhile, trim green beans. When water is at a strong boil, pour green beans into the water. Let the water return to a boil, and cook uncovered for 6 minutes. Pour green beans into a colander, and rinse with cold water. Put green beans in a bowl and add the rest of ingredients. Mix well.
*If you are in a hurry you can use two cans of canned green beans.

This is a great recipe for coleslaw that I got from my good friend DT. It comes out perfect every time! Thanks DT!

1 bag Dole coleslaw
1/2 cup mayonaise
1/2 cup sugar
1/4  cup vinegar
splash of lemon juice
Mix everything together.

Enjoy your BBQ!
