Delicious, summery foods perfect for the first official BBQ weekend of 2016!
Little Red Hen and I am really excited to be here! Like, as excited as I get about great food, so that is definitely excited! Alicia invited me to put together a Memorial Day Roundup, and I jumped at the chance. I've just done some calculations and realized I've known Alicia for half of my life. I have to say it is has been the best half of my life. Coincidence? I think not! She's one of my favorite people, not just because we both really, really like to talk about food; not just because we've driven hours together just to get Krispy Kremes; and not even just because she shares her delicious creations with me. Nope, it comes down to the fact that she has the most contagious laugh, has the craziest stories, and is one of the best people around.
But, let's talk food, shall we?
Memorial Day Weekend is coming up and you know what that means! Dust off the grill and call up some friends because summer eating is about to begin! I've put together 19 recipes you've got to try this Memorial Day Weekend. Why 19? Well, that's enough for a delicious salad, freshly grilled meats, and a couple sweet, summery desserts for not just one day, but for Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday. See how much I like you guys!
I got so hungry putting this roundup together. That's a good sign, isn't it?
May your weekend be filled with sun and the smokey smell of a successful barbecue! And as I say over at Little Red Hen...
