Adventures in Everyday Entertaining
Very much ready for the weekend. Here in the U.S., it is Memorial Day Weekend. It is a day of remembrance for the men and women who have died serving our country. Despite the fun to be had with cookouts and picnics, it is important to keep this in mind on Monday and honor our fallen soldiers.
With that being said, let’s talk about food and entertaining.
I love a good burger! Now, I know for all my vegetarian and vegan readers I may be loosing you here (but make sure to check out the other recipes at the end of this segment)… but for those omnivores out there, you know what I’m talking about! And Memorial Day Weekend is always a great weekend to grill out. Mama’s Gotta Bake takes the art of burger making to a whole new level. Make sure to check out her Burger Bible full of great tips and tricks for making the perfect burger.
Not into meat, or need some great additions to your Memorial Day eating, these recipes from fellow bloggers are sure to please!
Hopefully this weekend you will be spending it with family and friends. Possibly they will be staying one or more nights. Erin over at Neaten Your Nest did a wonderful post on House Cleaning After Guests. Perhaps not thought of as the most exciting part of having company, but Erin tips are a great reminder of things to do so they don’t get put off for weeks to come. And while you’re looking at doing a little cleaning after they leave, make sure to check out Neaten Your Nest’s recipes for Green Cleaning Products that you can make at home!
For the last week and a half I have had David Bowie’s Space Oddity in my head. This is, in fact, one of my favorite Bowie songs. I love the whole Major Tom saga. (Which means I also enjoy ‘Ashes to Ashes’ and ‘Hallo Spaceboy’ which include the Major Tom character). So needless to say I am very excited about Canadian Astronaut,Chris Hadfield’s version of the song that he did WHILE IN SPACE!
