The Recipe For A Great Memorial Day BBQ

Wow! Can you believe we are just over a week away from Memorial Day? This national holiday is an opportunity to remember all those who have given the ultimate sacrifice in service to our country’s armed forces. Originating as Decoration Day after the American Civil War in 1868, the holiday has taken on some colloquial connotations in addition to its solemn association. Often people have barbecues, and open their swimming pools as a kick-off to the summer season. While we always want to remember those who gave their lives for our country, we also want to offer some ways to liven up your backyard if you are having a barbecue! BBQ

Ingredients for a Great Memorial Day Barbecue:

1 part great food:

Food is the universal language. Having a wide variety of food options, and accommodating for dietary restrictions so there is something for everyone, is a great way to please a crowd! You will also want to have something that can be grilled, as most people will prefer to be outdoors in the warm weather.

For your meat/protein, consider: Classic burgersBBQ chicken, and maybe even shrimp as great protein options. For the vegans/vegetarians, try grilling a grilled  or even cactus!

For your side dishes, consider: Of course, the classic crowd pleasers are always great options, but try jazzing it up with some Mexican Grilled Corn with Cilantro, or this fun twist on the classic mac-n-cheese!

For your desserts, consider: Everyone loves banana pudding; everyone loves Rice Krispies Treats, but try this twist that combines them for a fun and different BBQ dessert!
