On this important day of remembrance, we humbly thank our veterans for their service in the armed forces. Memorial Day is a day to honor those that gave the ultimate sacrifice for our country, and weâre hoping at cookouts and celebrations across the country, people are serving their guests as our fallen veterans proudly served us.
Yesterday, we posted our favorite burger recipes for Memorial Day cookouts. Today, weâll focus on the side dishes. These dishes are great for barbecues or potlucks and can easily be prepared on the grill while you are making the main dish.
Memorial Day is a United States holiday that comes annually on the last Monday in May. It is a day set aside to honor those who have passed during military service and additionally marks the unofficial start of the summer grilling season. Cookouts and barbecues with patriotic themes are popular, so we have prepared a menu centered around grilling your guests will be sure to enjoy.
Some kids are resistant to eating vegetables, while others are open to trying just about everything. We have found allowing kids to assist in the preparation of the meal usually makes them more excited to try new things. It also helps educate them on nutrition and healthy choices. These marinated summer vegetable kabobs are fun for the whole family to prepare and kids love to get their hands dirty and create their own kabob combinations.
