While summer might be winding down, there are still many ways to enjoy the warm weather. August 31, 2018 is National Eat Outside Day! Here at Mosquito Joe we love any excuse to get outdoors, so we wanted to share some of our favorite recipes so you and your family can celebrate the holiday.
Burgers and Hot Dogs – All-American burgers and hot dogs are always a crowd-pleaser. Create variety in your spread with different types of cheese, toppings and condiments. Stick with a classic burger or spice things up with a Chipotle Turkey Burger. Try these bacon-wrapped hot dogs for a twist on an old favorite.
Kabobs – Get your protein and veggies all in one! These are fun to personalize and are easy for kids to assemble. Whether it’s Hawaiian Kabobs with shrimp, pineapple and bacon or Cowboy Kabobs with beef, red bell peppers and onions, there’s sure to be something for everyone.
Grilled Chicken – Marinated chicken breasts, thighs, wings and drumsticks are grilling staples. BBQ chicken packs a tangy, smoky punch while buffalo chicken wings brings the heat. A great vegetarian option is a grilled cauliflower steak.
Fish Tacos – For a taste of Mexico no matter where you are in the United States, give these fish tacos topped with mango salsa a try! Cilantro lime rice and beans are the perfect side dish for the sweet and savory tacos.
Don’t forget about dessert! Popsicles or a summer berry cobbler are perfect summertime sweets. For a fun, interactive dessert, try homemade no-churn ice cream! All it takes is a couple ingredients, rock salt and two zip-top bags. Kids will love being able to watch the magic (science!) behind this treat.
National Eat Outside Day isn’t just for to humans! With all of these great dishes for you and your family, your furry friend might get jealous. Whip up a batch of homemade dog treats that will get your pet’s tail wagging.
If cooking isn’t your thing, don’t worry – order takeout! Call your favorite pizzeria, Chinese restaurant or sandwich shop and have a picnic outside.
Turn your family cookout into a giant barbecue for friends and neighbors. Asking everyone to bring a side dish ensures that there is plenty to eat and you can enjoy the outdoors instead of being stuck in the kitchen. Mosquito Joe believes the only thing better than sharing yummy food is to Share the MoJo! When you refer someone you know for a Mosquito Joe treatment, that means $25 off for you and your friend. It’s easy as pie!
With all these delicious dishes, make sure that the only thing getting bitten into is your dinner. Give your local Mosquito Joe a call to schedule your treatment for an itch-free yard. Don’t let mosquitoes and ticks make a meal out of you this National Eat Outside Day!
