Okay, that's not an official designation, but it is barbeque month for our family. We are so happy to be back in our own home with our yard and of course our barbeque to enjoy! This last month of summer, we plan to make the most of it.
On the August long weekend, we were in the middle of our big road trip home from our three-month stint in Calgary. One of the first meals we had when we finally arrived was barbequed veggie burgers with sweet Ontario corn and homemade potato salad. It's a classic summer meal, simple and delicious - and that goes for the Wonder+ SimplyFree buns we had for our burgers as well.
The buns I mentioned before and again here, are now our go-to buns for barbeque. This is the first Canadian National Brand of bakery products that are colour-, preservative-, and chemical- free, yet they taste just like the yummy Wonder buns we are all used to. Plus I have noticed that they don't seem to go stale any faster for not having preservatives. So, why add them in? They also don't contain high-fructose corn syrup (ick, and so bad for your health), and use unbleached wheat flour. Better to get buns that have simple, familiar ingredients and keep the chemicals out of our family's food.
Don't forget there are some good-lookin' recipes over at Canadian Living to help you think up ways to use that barbeque this summer. I think they are nearly all convertible to vegetarian (except maybe the tuna melts) as well. We pick up veggie dogs at the grocery store and veggie burgers at one of the wholesale club stores (because we eat so many!). There are also better barbeque tips for tweaking your BBQ style.
Here are my two most favourite people relaxing in the hammock after a delish bbq dinner -
Get out there and enjoy these summer days... we are planning to host a few more barbeques while we have the nice weather. We've got to make the most of it!

FYI – I'm happy to try the product for free and receive a gift card for my time in writing about it, but I want you to know - I don't promote products that my family wouldn't use or products that go against my grain. These new products by Wonder, to me, are a step in a very good direction for a big company. This IS the product I look for in the grocery store.
