My Project 155-001

This week we are bringing you recipes for the grill, some desserts and side dishes you might enjoy for the Memorial Day weekend.  It is supposed to be beautiful in Kentucky.  I hope you all enjoy pretty weather, some great food and remember our fallen heroes that paid the ultimate price for this nation. 

The following recipes have been collected from around the internet and are recipes we thought you might enjoy. You will be able to “share” with your friends by clicking on the Facebook, Pinterest or E-mail buttons at the bottom of each post. Click on the name of the recipe to check it out. Be sure and check out the site as well as the recipes posted here.

 Weekly Quote:

My fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country. ~John F. Kennedy

Weekly Tip:

You can replace 1 tablespoon cornstarch with 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour as a thickener in recipes. 

Be safe this holiday weekend, spend time with family and friends, take time to stop and smell the roses and ENJOY!  We will see you back here next week.
