Pool Party Recipes (Memorial Day) Recipe

We're dusting off the barbecue grill today. My childhood friend Alexia from France and her family just arrived yesterday and we're about to show them how we throw pool parties. Alexia was really excited about it because from what she said, it's pouring rain in Paris right now!

I took them grocery shopping yesterday and she and her husband Olivier were stunned by the size of American supermarkers, especially the size of the shopping carts. We bought a lot of typical American food for the occasion. I want them to relax, enjoy and sip cocktails around the pool. 

I've gathered a few recipes I'll be cooking today, in particular a lot of grilling recipes to help you celebrate Memorial Day too. Enjoy!

Grilled Zucchini with Chimichurri Recipe

You've probably noticed that recently I’ve published more zucchini recipes than usual. The reason is that we have so much zucchini in our garden that's begging to be harvested.

My favorite method by far for preparing zucchini is grilling. Since zucchini tends to be a little bland, in this recipe I flavored them with chimichurri sauce. This sauce consists of a combination of Italian parsley, pickled garlic, Champagne pear vinegar, lemon, lemon thyme, coriander and extra-virgin olive oil. I also topped the zucchini with a little queso fresco before serving.

This year's July 4th is especially meaningful to me because it's my first Independence Day as a proud US citizen. In the spirit of this patriotic holiday, I wanted to share with you a picture of my first few minutes as an American right after I took the oath last month. 

I hope everyone is having a blast. We're having a giant barbecue at our home. Here are a few dishes we're going to be eating. Enjoy the firework display and happy Fourth of July!
