My Top 5 Backyard Bash Essentials

Almost everyone (at least where I'm from) has HUGE family barbecues and get togethers in the summer, complete with someone's drunk uncle doing [acapella] karaoke on the table. So, I'm here to make your #BackYardBash checklist a little easier (especially if you're vegan 😉)!

This one's not so much a tangible product, rather an app. A life changing app. An app that's got something almost godly... MUSIC! I mean, what's a summer bash without #music? After all, that drunk uncle needs something (other than his own incessant howling) to dance to!

I don't know about you, but in Texas we have a pretty serious mosquito problem. Last year one flew off with my cat. To prevent any itching, biting, or cat tragedies (#PoorMittens), you're going to want to invest in some Satan repellent... Er, I mean, bug spray. This one just clips on to your pants, shirt, purse, etc. and you don't even notice it's there! #WhatIsThisSorcery

Ahh, what says #Summer better than butter? Seriously. Summer just isn't summer without buttered toast, buttery corn, buttered veggies, buttery mashed potatoes, even buttered butter! ...Just kidding, I'm not going to go all Paula Dean on you. Put some of this on the inside of your hamburger buns before placing them in the oven or on the grill, and you'll soon have crispy, buttery, perfect buns. That's what we all strive for, right? Perfect Buns? #OhYouMeantTheOtherBuns

I don't care if you're vegan or not, these are amazing. Throw them on the grill and make jumbo dogs, complete with ketchup, mustard, red onions, or any of your other favorite toppings. What's not to love?

This pesto is the best-o. No? Okay. But in all seriousness, pop this open and your life will change. Dip carrots, celery, chips, cucumbers, [insert various other foods here], OR you can use it as pasta sauce, pizza sauce, or a condiment on your sandwiches! Life makes sense again.
