Plan a Summer Pool Party

Make a splash this summer by holding the ultimate backyard bash.  A pool party!  Whether you have a pool of your own or have to borrow a neighbor’s backyard, nothing says summer fun like games, nice cool water and delicious food.  So invite all your friends, plan some fun games and activities for the kids, and cook up this delicious menu, perfect for a hot summer day.  And you know our motto here, when throwing a party it’s all about what you can do ahead so you get to partake in the fun rather than slave away in the kitchen.
