Memorial Day is just around the corner, a time to thank those who serve, their families and our Vets & to remember that freedom isn’t free. We always celebrate Memorial Day with family & friends, grilling out & playing games. You can never go wrong with Burgers, Booze & Bags (cornhole). How about you?
I am also very excited that this weekend officially kicks off the summer! I love a festive outdoor party, so my ideas for this year would include some fun streamers, string lights, lots of yummy drinks (with striped straws of course!) & hot dogs on the grill! A friend of mine puts crushed potato chips on hot dogs, have you ever heard such a thing? Sign me up.
I also love the idea of a S’mores bar at the end of the night, such a fun thing to incorporate into Memorial Day festivities!
(Other sources & ideas can be found on my Memorial Day & Fourth of July Pinterest Board)
You can really dress up any foods on Memorial Day or Fourth of July by adding strawberries & blueberries, which we already do almost every day.
You may have already caught wind of all the French Toast goodness that is going on at our house if you follow me on Instagram (@jlgarvin). Grandpa is in town this week & he has a sweet tooth, just like me!
My favorite way to eat French Toast is to make it using sourdough bread. I add cinnamon & vanilla to the egg mixture, cook it in the frying pan with a little bit of butter & top it with fruit and whipped cream. What up. Looks like somebody just found a way to eat dessert at eight in the morning.
Of course Harper loves it too, I cut hers into little strips and add bananas & blueberries on top.
Harper has also been a big fan of whole fruit bars, we have been sharing one each afternoon when she wakes up from her nap. (I was addicted to these things when I was pregnant, you can read more about that here).
This has me thinking about all of the amazing popsicles I could make with the Zoku, so of course I am dying to order one! Everything tastes better frozen in the summer, right? 🙂
Happy Friday EVE!8
