Memorial Day is quickly approaching and as the unofficial kickoff to summer it means that warm weather and BBQ’s are quickly approaching. I love summer and I love being able to cook out and eat outside and not have to stand over a hot stove! It is also a great excuse to use paper plates and not have to do dishes as all the mess is outside.
I have rounded up some great Memorial Day Cookout Recipes for you to use this weekend and all summer long! I hope you enjoy them! (pssst….need something to keep the kids occupied while you are enjoing your day? Why not print out this Memorial Day Wordsearch for them?
