Labor Day is just around the corner, and Cirro Energy wants to give homeowners in Texas ideas for their Labor Day barbecue! It’s always sad to see the summer go, but throwing a party will ease the transition into fall. Here, Cirro Energy gives some advice for doing it right.
- Plan ahead. People often use Labor Day as an opportunity to sneak in one more mini-vacation, so send your “save the date” invitation notices well in advance, and follow up with more specific invitations as the date nears.
- Choose the right space. No one knows more about how challenging it is to keep energy costs down during the hot summer months than Cirro Energy. Consider sparing your own electric bill by holding your bash at a location other than your home, like the park or a sprayground area but make sure you get the right permits and permissions before you finalize your plans. If you do host it at your house, consider keeping the party outdoors as much as possible, because your air conditioner has to work harder when more people are in the house.
- Go beyond hot dogs and hamburgers. There are many ways to plan a menu that will make your party a little more exciting.
- If you have your heart set on hot dogs and hamburgers, do them a little differently, with things like sliders and corn dog tots, with homemade French fries.
- Consider menu items that can be prepared ahead of time and served cold, so you won’t have to work during the party! Cold salads can be creative, like Watermelon Feta Salad or Cantaloupe Salad with Figs and Basil, or more traditional, like Greek Pasta Salad. Cold soups are equally varied, and you can experiment with recipes like Creamy Caesar Gazpacho and Cold Blueberry Basil Soup. Or you can keep it simple and familiar, with dips like guacamole and hummus, a crudités platter, and some mini-subs.
- Make dessert memorable. Snow cones are a summery favorite, and mini fruit pies put the best of summer’s bounty into an adorably tiny package.
