Hello, it’s been awhile!  The summer has been absolutely insane so I’m hoping I can catch up on some posts this week.

A couple of weekends ago I had a few cousins visit with their little kids, age newborn to 3.  Not being a parent myself, I wasn’t sure what to make.  I just knew that it had to appeal to both big and small people and wouldn’t take too long to set up since we were going blueberry picking right before lunch.  I also wanted the food to be fun and flexible.

I didn’t quite make the timing right (we ate close to 2pm) but at least it tasted good.  We were hit with a huge downpour right after we left the blueberry orchard so Hubby started these on an electric grill, then finished them outside when the rain slowed down.

Recipe for a Simple Slider Party

Protein (2 oz. each)

  • Ground beef patties
  • Ground turkey patties
  • Black bean patties (I didn’t get a chance to make these; when I do I’ll put them in a later post)


  • Basil leaves
  • Leaf lettuce, torn into small pieces
  • Tomato slices (plum or cherry)
  • Cheese (slices off a cheddar brick are the perfect size)


  • Ketchup
  • Roasted red pepper mayo (I roasted a red bell pepper under the broiler, peeled the skin off, diced the pepper and mixed into light mayo)

Grill the patties and serve on slider rolls.  Wouldn’t you know it, they actually SELL slider rolls now??  I found out after I ended up making my own.  We also had corn on the cob (the right way if boiling is 3 minutes only!!!), and a great spinach and strawberry salad that my cousin made.

For dessert, I made peach yogurt popsicles.  Puree sliced peaches and whole milk yogurt with lemon juice and a little sugar.  Pour into molds, freeze, and watch the kids go nuts!
