chicken-apple sausage rolls w/ red cabbage slaw

BBQ season is, and quite frankly always is in full force.  following an amazing week long vacation in mexico {stay tuned for an influx of a zillion photos} i was anxious and looking forward to getting back in the kitchen and back to sit down family-style dinners with my squad.

on the menu last night....

BBQ'd chicken-apple sausage rolls w/ a red cabbage slaw &
a medley of tomatoes, watermelon & strawberry salad

sausages and slaw just make sense.  throw in a grilled vienna roll and you've basically put everything i love in handheld form.  

the perfect way to celebrate the weekend, sunshine, and some quality time after being away from the little munchkins for so long.
although truthfully, i'd still like to be in mexico....
