Memorial day is just around the corner, then we have 4th of July and before you know it we’ll be getting ready for Labor Day. To me, the best part of this time of the year is eating outside with friends and family.
I wanted to do a roundup of some of my favorite recipes that are perfect for this time of the year. Best of all, you can still cook these inside if it’s a rainy holiday like Memorial Day will be for us. Have a wonderful time and eat lots of great food!
