7 Memorial Day Party Foods

While many people take advantage of the Memorial Day Monday off to head out of town, others have less-fancy plans on the pipeline. Nonetheless, we’re all busy! Planning a picnic or small get together for the holiday weekend but crunched on time? Here are seven homemade items you can purchase and rush ship.

Baked goods are a general crowd pleaser, so you can’t really go too wrong with cookies. Give them the extra holiday edge with coordinating national colors in these red, white and blueberry cookies. $10 for a box of 12, these sweets are shipped right after baking and arrive fresh from KE Cookies in California.

Hmmm... I was really expecting more to find recipes than links to online vendors....

While I love a new food find as much as the next person (and have been known to spend way more money than I should on such things) I personally think that $1 for some red white and blue sugar sprinkles to put on homemade cookies that can be sent to our troops or brought to your local veteran's hospital is a much better way to spend your money and time this year.

Thank you to ALL veterans and First Responders and to ALL that gave up their life for us

This is not what Memorial Day is about. Memorial Day is about remembering those who gave us the freedoms we have. Many gave us their blood and their lives and left their families to do without them present.
Make your own stuff. My day is just sitting on the porch, yes, a real porch, and enjoy the day our Creator gives us. My brothers and sisters who gave me this freedom are much appreciated by me. Today is a day to slow down, think, and take time to offer Thanks to those who gave us everything they had.
I'll see you at the cemetery putting flags on the graves of our veterans and active duty who sleep there.
