This month’s easy menu plan includes recipes to help you hold a backyard luau party. The weather is warm, so it’s a great time to host a tropical-themed party with your friends!
Hasome and I moved a few weeks ago, and I’m so excited that we finally have a back yard that we can actually use! The area behind the apartment we moved out of has horrible drainage issues. After every heavy rainfall, it floods so badly, we have nicknamed the area “Lake Rustic”.
This back yard at this duplex is perfect for us! There’s room for our Big Easy smoker/grill combo, a small patio table, and lawn chairs. We’re even allowed to use an outdoor fire pit here, something we couldn’t do at the apartment complex. All of this means that we can finally host outdoor parties if we want to!
So, let’s get this luau menu plan and party decorating underway!
