I have to say, though it sucks to have rain in the summer, I do love the sound it makes when it patters on the dry ground for the first time in a while. Thanks for helping me celebrate, lunch!
It's hard to bring something to a BBQ that people will like that's still simple and quick to throw together. Throwing a few bits to fruit onto a stick is pretty much as simple as it can get. And who doesn't like a rainbow! You can dress up that boring buffet table covered in potato salad and baked beans!
