We’ll be out of town this Memorial Weekend for a special birthday present concert for our daughter. So instead of a new recipe I thought I’d share some past recipes for mains and sides you can grill or prepare over this very special weekend. Please don’t forget to think about and thank the families of fallen soldiers this weekend and Monday, and attending a Memorial Parade or visiting a veteran’s grave would make it very special!

Fajita Bar Party

Why not throw a Fajita Bar Party? Prep in advance and enjoy a stress-free gathering! 10-minute grill time and guests can build their own fajitas.

 Grilled Foil Packets

Here are a couple of foil packet ideas that can be mixed and matched! One of our favorite go-to grilling recipes.

 Pepperoni Pasta Salad

This is my top-viewed and pinned post, with over 25,000 views to date. WOW! (I must admit it is delicious, and feeds a crowd!)

New Potato Salad with Lemon, Dill, and Chives (No Mayo)

You’ll want to double or triple this if feeding more than four. A sure crowd-pleaser and is not as temperature-sensitive to sit out for awhile since there is no mayo in it!

Spicy Skillet Corn with Tomatoes and Bacon

Fresh corn on the cob cut off and cooked up quickly with some yummy seasonings, tomatoes, and bacon! Bacon optional, but why not? (Just sayin’…) AND, if your grill isn’t already in use, why not grill up that corn then throw in the skillet? Ohhh, I have to do that…
