From family bonding activities to cookfests with friends, KING SUE has some suggestions for a cool summer staycation that’s breezy and stress-free.
Prepare an afternoon potluck party. Dress up your garden and schedule a mouth-watering kind of meet up with friends. King Sue suggests snacks that are easy to prepare. A refreshing Mango Sausage Salsa Wrap is a great start. Since it’s summer, get fresh mangoes from the market and dice them, along with ripe tomatoes and grilled King Sue German Franks or King Sue Hungarian Style Sausage. Arrange everything in toasted tortillas for a sweet and savory Southwestern wrap. You may also stir fry some King Sue Bacon and wrap them around steamed asparagus and you have skewered Bacon Wrapped Asparagus.
Go out and be green. You may want to do a morning walk at a nearby park or bike-hop to some museums. Be a tourist in your own neighborhood and discover new places to jog in the morning or where to walk your dog. Visit a plant shop and purchase some herbs for your pocket garden or if you want a low maintenance hobby this summer, seek out some succulents and learn to grow them. Who knows, you might even use these herbs for a Mayo-free Potato Salad.
Check out the supermarket for baby potatoes, plain yoghurt, sour cream, chopped celery, olives, chopped celery, scallions, quail eggs (sliced in half) and lemon juice. Boil, and quarter the potatoes and toss in everything. The star of the salad bowl is cooked King Sue Chorizo Bilbao. Chill and sprinkle some grated cheese and chopped parsley.
Camp out. Check out your friends’ backyards and decide which one is perfect for a campfire night. Assign each person some tasks, making sure someone takes care of pitching the tents, making the bonfire, choosing the music and preparing dinner, and organizing games and other activities. Purchase some chips and refreshing drinks and forget the King Sue Old English Pork Sausage that will be perfect to skewer with marshmallows over bonfire.
Repeat often. Life is busy and oftentimes, work or school gets in the way of spending time with family and friends. So summer or no summer, make every weekend a great reason for a staycation as there are lots of things waiting to be explored. Use King Sue products in your food adventures, they are the best ingredients to any meal.
