Berry Barbecue Sauce
Friends, when our daughter made this Berry Barbecue Sauce for burgers the other night, I could have licked the bowl. So delicious, I can’t wait to make it again, and serve it for company!
This is a great recipe for a sweet and savory barbecue sauce that has a hint of summer berries.
Most people coming over for dinner won’t say no to a juicy, summer burger! Plus, burgers are easy, and I found even if you have vegetarian friends coming, you can toss veggie patties on the grill.
One step to accomplish before the guests arrive is to get the condiment platter and sauces ready.
On a giant board, lay the lettuce leaves, tomatoes and onion slices, and a small bowl of pickles.
Then fill small bowls with sauces, like mayo, mustard, ketchup, or any homemade sauce.
How to make Berry Barbecue Sauce
Summer feels like the perfect time to practice this simple kind of hospitality. You know, the casual kind where you just “set it out,” with a stack of plates.
The days are longer, schedules are clearer, plans are looser, people generally say “yes” to summer invites.
I’ve written about it many times on my blog, how our intentions are good … “Let’s get together sometime!” we say.
But we need to actually follow through and make it happen.
Just do it: Invite people past our front doorsteps, into our homes.
Prep work before guests arrive
Do what you can before the guests arrive. I say this because it actually frees you up to be more “present” with your guests, without a million things on your mind. BUT … if you run out of time, just keep getting the food together while the guests are chatting with you.
There is no perfect formula, Friends. Simple hospitality is about getting the food on the table, and then diving into the best part: The conversation.
Can you come over for dinner? should be our summer motto!
