For us in the USA this weekend is Memorial Day, a federal holiday for remembering the people who died while serving in the country’s armed forces. But it also serves as the kick-off for summer and a three-day holiday weekend. It’s FINALLY SUMMER. Let’s party… and remember. So…. what to take to the party? Food and party animals.
Once know as Decoration Day that started after the American Civil War to honor the Union dead, later it merged with a similar Confederate holiday and ultimately for all American war dead.
Publisher note: This is a re-edit of last years post. New recommendations and of course, a new dog picture.
Before we start, a food safety reminders. So easy to forget. It is up to you to keep your friends and family safe. I see dangerous food handling on TV food shows frequents. So know the rules. PLEASE.
As a start, review my post Holiday Food Safety . Let’s be safe out there.
Sweet and Spicy Chicken Bacon Wraps I use this one a lot
Fresh Strawberry Pie – I’m making two this weekend
Don’t Forget to take the Party Animals
Have a great holiday weekend and enjoy your summer.
