How to Have an Awesome Cook Out
Summer is quickly approaching and who doesn’t love a good cook out? At our Camden communities you can enjoy spending time with your family and friends while taking full advantage of our outdoor amenities.
Before the fun begins here are a few tips to use the grills safely.
- Clean the grill before every use with a grill brush.
- When lighting a gas grill make sure the lid is open.
- Never leave the grill unattended.
Now that we are all prepared to use the grills, it’s time for food! Hamburgers and hot dogs are the easiest to make, and let’s face it, who doesn’t love a good burger? Spice up your burger or hot dog by having a condiment bar. Some of my favorite toppings are cheese, onions and mustard! For sides you can go simple with chips and potato salad, but there are also a variety of yummy sides that you can make right on the grill; like grilled pineapple or grilled corn on the cob.
Once you have your food taken care of, you will need something to wash it down with. Water is of course a must, but we all know when cooking out adult beverages are enjoyed. There’s nothing like an ice cold beer or a cocktail to indulge in on a summer day. Pineapple Party Punch anyone?
Pro-Tip: Make sure to review your communities’ rules for outdoor beverages, as most will not allow you to have glass bottles in common areas for safety reasons.
Most often Camden communities’ grills are located near the pool area. Relax under the cabanas, or soak up the sun in the loungers. If the sun isn’t for you, head inside the clubhouse and enjoy a game of pool or watch some tv. Our veranda area is a great space for you to challenge your friends to a game of cornhole or Jenga.
Now that your cookout is complete, head on back home and relax in your cozy apartment home. Make sure to subscribe to our Simply Camden blog, so you never miss out on why you should consider calling Camden home!
