A Cooking Light Virtual Supper Club BBQ and a Giveaway!

This month our Cooking Light Virtual Supper Club enjoyed a summer BBQ!  Lately, Northern New York is really feeling tropical!  This week we have been in the high 90's all week with no end in sight for tomorrow either!  Poor Grumpy.  He doesn't have the benefit of an air conditioned office like I do all day.  ;)

I decided that I wanted to bring Honey Chipotle Baked Beans.  These were in my son Christopher's words, the best beans he has ever eaten!  Thanks Cooking Light!

We brought the following to our picnic table this month:

Jamie brought Grilled Romaine with Blue Cheese Dressing
Sandi from Whistlestop Cafe Cooking brought Herbed Potato Salad
Shelby (me) from The Life and Loves of Grumpy's Honeybunch made Honey Chipotle Baked Beans
Patsy from Family, Friends and Food made Pesto Chicken Salad Sandwiches
Val from More Than Burnt Toast brought Rum Spiked Grilled Pineapple with Salted Caramel Ice Cream
 

We also are celebrating our 1 year Cooking Light Virtual Supper Club anniversary!  To celebrate our anniversary, we are having a Cookbook giveaway for you, our readers!
 
To earn an entry in the Cooking Light cookbook giveaway, you must visit the Cookinglight.com website, find a recipe that fits our theme of Barbecue/Picnic and leave a comment with the link or name of recipe. 
To earn up to 4 more entries, visit each of the other Cooking Light Virtual Supper Club members blogs and leave a comment on their blog with the same or different Cooking Light recipe.

The giveaway will end on Wednesday, July 14th, 2010.  We will compile all the comments and randomly pick one winner.  We will notify the winner by email.  Giveaway is open to US and Canadian residents only. 

DisclosureCooking Light is providing the cookbook, Cooking Light, Cooking through the Seasons, but they are not a sponsor of the Cooking Light Virtual Supper Club.  This is something that 5 bloggers enjoy doing together and sharing with our readers on a monthly basis.  It's simply about adding more healthier, lower-fat and tasty meals for our families and for all of you.

I would love to give these beans a try. My husband makes great grilled beans as well so we would have to have a cook-off. LOL!!! I took a look around and I really love this recipe and can't wait to try it. Grilled Mexican Corn with Crema: http://find.myrecipes.com/recipes/recipefinder.dyn?action=displayRecipe&recipe_id=686152

Chipotle and honey - wonderful!

From the CL site, I would choose the Green & Yellow Bean Salad with Chunky Tomato Dressing & Feta Cheese.

I think this Bean Salad with Tomato Dressing: http://find.myrecipes.com/recipes/recipefinder.dyn?action=displayRecipe&recipe_id=630014 would be perfect with your picnic/barbecue theme! And, by the way, your baked beans are making me hungry just looking at them. Love Cooking Light!!!
