25 Fantastic Recipes to Celebrate Memorial Day



When we first came to the USA, nearly 12 years ago, one thing that truly struck us was the patriotism of Americans. In the small town where we used to live in Michigan so many houses have the American flag hoisted in their front lawn. In the Philippines, we only do this, if at all, during our own Independence Day and after that, the flag goes back to the closet and won't be taken out again until the next year. But here, it's there pretty much the whole year through. 

The patriotism is even more evident during Memorial Day and of course, the 4th of July (which incidentally is celebrated in the Philippines as Filipino-American Friendship Day, though am not certain if it is still declared as an official holiday there, it was when I was in elementary but I won't reveal the particular years, lest I inadvertently reveal my young (???) age.  :) Anyway, we religiously watched the Memorial Day Parade every year when we lived in Michigan and it was always so touching to see how much the people honored the veterans as they walked along the streets of Downtown Holland. Some members of our former church are veterans so we always looked forward to seeing them parade down the street every year. It is such a special day, indeed.

Of course, after the parade has finished it's time for picnic at the park or a get-together. For those who are planning to connect with friends and loved ones this Memorial Day here's a wonderful round-up of delicious recipes that's sure to make everyone smile! Pick and choose the recipe that you fancy and am sure, they'll all be yummy! Happy Memorial weekend for now!
