Celebrate Victoria Day weekend with Olliffe

Celebrate Victoria Day weekend with Olliffe

The first long weekend of the season is finally here, and we’re ready to enjoy it. The current forecast has us feeling pretty optimistic (it’s calling for some clouds, but no rain) and our fingers are crossed for the kind of beautiful late spring weather that calls for a hammock, a lounger on the back patio or a well-loved Muskoka chair. After all, there’s only so much yard work a person can do!

Here are some long weekend tips, tricks and reminders from the Olliffe team. We hope to see you in our Yonge Street butcher shop this weekend.

Get ready to grill

A long weekend should be relaxed and enjoyable from start to finish, and a little planning can help you achieve this goal. Here are some tips and tricks from our team:

  • Make sure your BBQ is clean, in good working condition, and has plenty of propane (if needed).
  • Stock up on these high quality applewood pellets and chips, if you’re going to be using a Big Green Egg or other backyard smoker.
  • Locate and wash your outdoor dishes/glassware if you haven’t used those items since the fall. We know how they can get relegated to the back of a cupboard over the winter months!
  • If you’re hosting a BBQ or having a big family meal, make things like potato salad and coleslaw ahead of time—even the night before, if possible. This way, you can socialize, work in the garden or relax while these items cool in the fridge.
  • Consider making most of your meal outdoors to minimize dishes and maximize downtime. Grilled vegetables are always a treat, and asparagus is currently in season!

We have one more tip, and it’s a good one: don’t forget to take advantage of BurgerFest at Olliffe!
