Summertime Fun in Reno

summertime fun in RenoIt is summertime and that means outdoor grilling time.  Your Reno apartment has so many great amenities including a barbecue and picnic area. So, why not invite a few friends or neighbors over to your Reno apartment for a summertime barbecue.  Instead of just serving up the same old burgers, dogs, and potato salad, why not try these twists on some outdoor grilling classics.

Burgers and Hot Dogs – They are a grilling staple, but instead of serving them plain, add some cheese, bacon and barbecue sauce to your burgers and split your dogs and stuff them with cheese.  To really make them special you can create a topping platter and include onions, peppers, chipotle ketchup, pickles, lettuce, heirloom tomatoes, radishes, baby spinach, and other fresh vegetables or sauces.

Shrimp on the Barbie isn’t just for those down under.  Buy peeled frozen shrimp and defrost it, add garlic, butter and salt, and pepper, and cook it in tin foil. Delicious!

Potato Salad is another barbecue classic, but why not dress it up a bit.  Garden fresh scallions or radishes can really add a refreshing touch.  You can also serve the potato salad in lettuce cups for a creative and delicious twist to this summertime favorite.

Looking for a healthier dessert option?  We have the answer! Skewer some pineapple slices, or fresh peaches and plums.  Cook them on the grill and then drizzle them with caramel sauce.

Make decorating easy with matching plates and napkins.  You can fill some inexpensive mason jars or water bottles with fresh flowers.

Do you want to enjoy a barbecue without cooking? No worries, Brothers Barbecue, located on Central Street, has some of the BEST pulled pork, brisket, sausage & ribs around. 

Enjoy these great outdoor grilling tips for a relaxing evening at your Reno, Nevado apartment at Riverside Park.
