While being the unofficial start of vacation season in the United States, Memorial Day is first and foremost about honoring the men and women who have died while serving in the military. Originally called Decoration Day it was about honoring those who died in the Civil War from both the Confederate and Union sides. In the early 1900’s it was extended to include all people who have died in military service.
Large family gatherings and an outdoor meal with everyone sharing their best Memorial Day recipes is a common tradition in many parts of the USA.
When you are planning your outdoor event we hope the recipes below will help delight your family and friends. Be sure to try the Chipotle Turkey Burger Recipe or Baby Back Ribs Recipe and the refreshing Old Fashioned Lemonade Recipe. For a dessert treat try the Peach Cobbler Recipoe or the Blueberry Pie Recipe.
While it is great time to enjoy family and friends don’t forget to honor those who have fought and died to make what we have possible.
