Last Minute Memorial Day Recipes
Let me guess… You planned to use Memorial Day wisely. No exciting plans to hit the beach, just a long practical to-do list and a determined spirit.
Yet now that Memorial Day is here, you’d give anything to avoid cleaning that hall closet and weeding the flower beds. An impromptu Memorial Day party sounds mighty good right now.
Yes, I have thrown my share of impromptu parties to avoid chores. Probably more than my share.
The key to these spur-of-the-moment gatherings is to prepare dishes that have big appeal and little prep-work.
