Memorial Day Menu Planning


Hot dogs and cous-cous saladHoliday weekends should be spent in the company of friends and family, not alone in the kitchen. I snooped around and gathered some recipe suggestions to make your Memorial Day menu planning easier. These are recipes that can either be made ahead of time, prepared in a snap or, even, made with the help of your kids. The point is to have fun and don’t stress. Enjoy your friends and family – and don’t forget to freeze your leftovers!
