Super Easy Homemade Guacamole Recipe

| June 16, 2014 | 69 Comments


Finally the warm weather is here to stay, and now it’s the time for some BBQ fun and summer activities!

We are very lucky to live on an acre lot in rural Ottawa. Therefore, we have so much open space to play sports and games with the kids. Our favourite summer activities as a family are playing basketball and ball hockey in the driveway, soccer on the left side of the house, and badminton in the backyard. Let’s not forget games like the Ladderball, the Bean Bag Toss, and Washer Toss that are extremely fun to play with friends at home, on the beach, or at family reunions. We try to enjoy the short Canadian summer the best way we can on a daily basis.



Every year, I write a family bucket list to see the activities we can do or visit when my kids are off school:

  • A trip to the Unites States
  • Shopping in Montreal and visiting relatives
  • Fun times at a family cottage
  • Attending the Navan Fair, the Kingdom of Osgoode Medieval Festival, and Bluesfest
  • Water fun at the Calypso Water Park
  • Visiting the Cumberland Heritage Village Museum and Canada Science and Technology Museum
  • A Mini Putt family challenge
  • Cheer on Ottawa’s Redblacks football team and the Fury FC Soccer team

I pretty much try to plan a one day getaway per weekend to explore Ottawa and other cities, and enjoy spending quality time together as a family.


Gay Lea Gold Sour Cream


Of course, a family favourite activity is just relaxing at home on the deck and eating BBQ meals. We actually just bought 2 long chairs to lay and enjoy the sun! My husband is the BBQ chef at our house, and can he ever cook delicious steaks, shish kabobs, and marinated chicken breasts!  I usually prepare the main dishes and veggies and just hand them to him to cook on the BBQ. One meal that we cook year round is Chicken Quesadilla and it tastes even better heated on the BBQ!  Quesadillas are easy to make at home. For the chicken, you can cook a whole one in the oven and diced it after, cook pieces of chicken breasts in a frying pan or on the BBQ, or, if in a hurry, just purchase a cooked chicken at the grocery store and cut it into pieces. For added flavour, they are delicious served with Gold Premium Sour Cream from Gay Lea Foods.

I hope you will enjoy them as much as we do!
