If you couldn't guess, I will be sharing Memorial Day themed favorites. But first, we have a few "American" holidays all red, white, blue, and BBQs. I think it is important to know what exactly we are celebrating with a day off. Memorial Day started after the Civil War as a day to place flowers of solders graves, with the combination of similar Confederate traditions, Memorial Day became a day to honor all Americans who died in military service. Lets try to remember that when we are with our friends and family, enjoying some ribs and potato salad.
