There is no question about it, summer is here! Put away your coats and break out your swim suits because it’s time to frolick in the sun and hang out with friends by the bbq.  However you decide to kick off fun in the sun season, do it as healthy as possible because come back to school season, you want to make sure you fit in your jeans and you aren’t burnt to a crisp ; )  For more healthy and eco Memorial Day tips, check out last year’s post. This year, I’m sharing nothing but fun food so let’s start the party right but before we do, be sure to thank the veteran’s in your life because today, is their day ; )

Here’s a feast to enjoy all summer long:

Drunk BBQ Corn
10 ears fresh corn with husks
1 quart beer (non-alcoholic or wheat free if desired)
1 (7 pound) bag of ice cubes

Place whole ears of corn in an ice chest. Pour beer over top. Dump ice out over the ears of corn. Place the lid on the cooler, and let sit 8 hours, or overnight. Preheat smoker to 250 degrees. Place corn in the smoker and close the lid. Cook for 1 to 2 hours, turning every 20 minutes or so. Kernels should give easily under pressure when done. To eat, just peel back the husks and dig in!

Bruschetta Salad
8 cups Italian bread cubes
3 cups chopped tomatoes
1 cup minced fresh basil
1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion
1/2 cup olive or vegetable oil
2 T cider or red wine vinegar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
