Memorial Day Ideas

This Monday the U.S celebrates Memorial Day to honor all those who gave the ultimate sacrifice in the armed forces. Memorial Day is also the unofficial kick-off of the summer BBQ season and we like to invite family and friends over to enjoy good food and lots of fun. Below is our BBQ menu for this Memorial Day, which includes how to make Iced Tea Lemonade. Did you know that Arnold Palmer made Iced Tea Lemonade famous? The drink is even called an Arnold Palmer!  

Memorial Day BBQ Menu

  • BBQ Chicken and Burgers
  • Muncy Family Potato Salad made with cubed, boiled potatoes, whole olives, chopped dill pickles, and mayonnaise
  • Muncy Family Coleslaw made with shredded cabbage, carrots, chopped purple onion, mayonnaise, and mustard
  • Sliced watermelon (I like to put the watermelon in the refrigerator to chill for a day before the BBQ)
  • Baked beans 
  • Green salad made with romaine lettuce, tomato wedges, carrot slices, purple onion slices, and whole olives topped with homemade ranch dressing
  • Iced Tea Lemonade: Fill a pitcher with 1/2 lemonade and 1/2 iced tea using our Black Supreme Tea, stir and serve over ice
  • Flag Cake made by topping your favorite cake with Cool Whip and adorning the top with blueberries, sliced bananas, and sliced strawberries to resemble the U.S. flag (see photo above of our cake last year)

Decorate with U.S. flags, red & white flowers in blue vases, red tablecloth, blue napkins, and white cups. Have some fun crafts for the kids to do and have fun! I hope you enjoy this Memorial Day weekend with friends and family. It's great to have fun, but please take a moment to remember those who perished fighting for our freedom. Stay safe, eat good food, and try an Arnold Palmer Iced Tea Lemonade!

Raising my cup to you,

Rosanne
