Your Memorial Day Menu

Ahhhh Memorial Day. In my family, it's the holiday that officially kicks off a summer spent swimming, grilling and listening to Happy Feelings on a continuous loop. If I close my eyes right now, I can hear the sound of domino's being slapped down on somebody's card table and see my grandfather in those old man grilling sandals, y'all know the ones.

This year, Shep and I are going to keep it pretty lowkey since we had a big Cinco De Mayo party but that doesn't mean that I don't have a menu fully planned out. I've gathered some of my favorite recipes from a few bloggers, recipe developers and chefs that I just love. This is your ultimate Memorial Day menu. You don't have to make everything I've listed here, think of this as more of a smattering of options.

I hope you find it helpful.
