Bring Out the Red, White and Blue!

Patriotic Celebrations!

Any time is a great time for a Patriotic theme party. With Independence Day, the Summer Olympics and Election campaigns, Patriotic theme parties will be a popular choice! Celebrate Independance Day with firecrackers and lots of red, white and blue decorations! The Summer Olympics call for cheering on the USA with Patriotic parties! May is the month for honoring our armed forces and veterans with Armed Forces Day and Memorial Day! Election Days always require patriotic theme parties!

Patriotic Scene Setters and decorating kits can get you ready for any Patriotic Celebration! Decorate with lots of red, white and blue balloons, American Flags, star candles and Patriotic garlands. Patriotic Decorating Supplies

Dress for your Celebration in Patriotic Hats, skimmer hats, berets, vest and jewelry. Patriotic Celebration Kits have enough for 25 to celebrate in style...so always have extra on hand.

Activities could include fireworks and Patriotic music and songs. Have a live band if possible.

Fire Up the Grill!

With the weather getting warm, dust off that grill...set the table with flag design paper products (for easy clean up) and gather with family and friends.

Favorite Grill Recipe

Grilled Sweet Potatoes w/Chipotle Honey Sauce

Ingredients:
Grilled Sweet Potatoes

. 6 med. sweet potatoes
. 1/3 cup olive or vegetable oil
. 2 tsp. coarse salt (I use Kosher for all my cooking)

Chipotle Honey Sauce

. 1 cup honey
. 1/2 cup BBQ Sauce
. 1/2 tsp. of Chipotle Seasoning

Directions:

Grilled Sweet Potatoes

1. Spray grill rack with cooking spray. Heat coals or gas grill for direct heat. Make the Chipotle Honey Sauce (see below).

2. Cut each sweet potato lengthwise into 4-5 slices; brush both sides with oil. Place on grill rack; sprinkle with 1 teaspoon of salt.

3. Cover and grill 4-6 inches from med. heat for 8-10 minutes, turning once and sprinkling with remaining salt, until potatoes are tender. Serve with the sauce.

Chipotle Honey Sauce

This can be made more spicy by adjusting the amount of seasoning to your liking. This sauce is great on pork, chicken, beef, meatballs; and used as dipping sauce or basting sauce. I can just taste a good beef brisket with this sauce on it..... yum.
