Barbecuing by the Signs
Few activities are a bigger part of summer than firing up the grill and cooking out. Discover how your astrological sign influences your approach to not only barbecuing, but how you have fun in the sun!
Fire is what it’s all about for you, Aries! Hot sauces and peppers are fitting additions to any of your meals, and you’ll enjoy playing competitive games after you’re through eating. Ping-pong, anyone?
The heat of summer tends to put you in a relaxed state of mind, so you’ll probably be inspired to make a dessert rather than look after the grill. And it wouldn’t be summer for you if you didn’t get the chance to laze about on a chaise lounge with a drink in your hand.
You’ll probably be too busy chatting to spend time at the grill, but you can contribute chips and dip to the meal. Card games are a perfect activity for you — they’ll keep your quick mind busy as you socialize!
You love nothing more than a big barbecue party, and you’ll probably do plenty of prep cooking beforehand. Along with being in the kitchen, you’ll also enjoy playing games and running around the park or backyard with the kids.
As a Fire sign, you always enjoy a meal cooked over an open flame. You take pride in your barbecuing ability and also like to show off a bit. When you’re not in front of the grill, you’ll have fun with a game of charades or any other activity that allows you to perform in front of a crowd.
Besides the traditional burgers, hot dogs and steaks, you’ll surely include healthier options on your barbecue menu, including veggies, fish and perhaps even grilled tofu. Try not to spend too much time at the party organizing items and cleaning up; instead, remember to relax and enjoy the company of your friends and family.
Though you may not be the master of the grill, you’ll do a great job of making your get-together more beautiful with fresh flowers, colorful tablecloths and other warm decor. You’ll also enjoy making everyone feel at home, since everyone know you’re the hostess with the mostest!
A small, intimate barbecue is more your style than a big, elaborate function. You adore the depth of flavor that smoke adds to your food, so you’ll probably want to grill the entire meal. Try a unique barbecued dessert, such as grilled peaches a la mode.
You’ll want to show off your grilling skills with more adventurous foods like squid and quail. Furthermore, your guests will appreciate the diverse group of people you bring together, so be creative with your invitations and plan for a day of big fun!
You like to do things just right, so a gas grill will allow you the control you want over your meal. Though you may spend most of your time making sure all the practicalities are taken care of, don’t forget to enjoy your guests as well!
You’ll want to spend most of your time talking with your friends and family, so be sure to put someone else in charge of the grill. You may even want to host a “barbecue for a cause” that enables you and your guests to sponsor your favorite charity.
Put yourself in charge of the music and entertainment for your barbecue. You’ll surely find the perfect ways to enhance the mood of the party — and your guests will no doubt enjoy your efforts!
