Everyone will be having a barbecue, but not you, you will be having a cook-off! Is there something you are great at making? Host a throw-down! If all five of your friends claim to make the best guacamole ever, challenge them to a taste-off with family and friends as judges.

Having a throw-down is instant entertainment, it gives your friends and family a chance to taste something and vote on it (voting is always fun), and it’s a super cheap way to have a “potluck” style shindig. All that is required is a little creativity, some supplies for your awesome dish, and a scorecard.

Tip: Encourage your “challengers” dishes to be pre-prepared at home. Minimal cleaning!
