Memorial Day was originally called decoration day. A day where we honor those that have lost their lives in our nation's service. In my mind I envision ladies decorating their men folk's graves with flowers and flags. For most, I believe it marks the beginning of summertime. If there is one thing I like to do it is surely a reason to pull out all of my red, white & blue everything. Memorial Day is a great reason to celebrate by doing just that! We always do our best to throw some sort of a cookout for the occasion. The cookout usually consists of burgers and steaks with all the expected trimmings. Here is a peak of what my table scape typically looks like.
I try to have something festive on the kitchen island as well. This is usually where we serve the food from.
