How’s your summer going friends?  It’s hot hot hot here in St. Louis.  Our heat index hit 115 F here at our house today, and if it’s not HOT, we’ve been getting summer storms.  I’ve had a hard time getting out side much between the heat and storms (I’m an AC kind of girl).  But I digress, it’s the season for Summer Backyard Entertaining, barbecues, backyard soirees and block parties. Enjoying the company of friends, family, and food while basking in the sunshine makes it all worth while. Last weeks linky party was full of recipes perfect for backyard entertaining, as well as how to make your own citronella candles and a pallet bar that should help inspire us all to have more fun this summer (there’ll be a chill in the air before we know it)

Summer Backyard Entertaining ideas and recipes. From DIY Citronella Candles, to a pallet bar to corn on the cob, burgers, cocktails, kabobs and grilled pineapples!
