Simplifying Delicious: Memorial Day Recipes
Hello Fabulistas! I love Memorial Day Weekend! It marks the beginning of summer and it's the perfect time for friends and family to get together and hang out! The long weekend is the perfect time to hang out with loved ones, eat delicious food, and make memories. When I have my family over, I like to prepare small bites everyone to munch on. When the pieces are small it's easy for guests to talk and chat at the same time. These recipes may not be as healthy as others I normally cover in Simplifying Delicious, but here's to treating yourself! Here's what I'm making this weekend: Creamy Potato Salad Potato salad is the perfect summer dish! It's hearty but not HOT, so you can cool down a bit in this summer heat. It's good for all day events because you can leave it out without worrying about it going bad. Plus, it's easy to make. You know how I love things easy!
from The Food NetworkDeviled Eggs Deviled Eggs are another appetizer on my menu this weekend. This is another long lasting dish that can sit out for a while. There are many tasty versions but I like to stick with classic deviled eggs. They're always a hit at my house!
from The Curvy CarrotPineapple Mango Salsa Salsa is always a party favorite. Fresh fruits are readily available when the weather gets warmer and they're refreshing, too. This Pineapple Mango Salsa adds an interesting twist to a classic dish. It's also quick to make!
from My Whole Food LifeMini Pork Cheeseburgers Sliders are one of my FAVE party dishes! They're easy to eat while I'm rushing around, making sure everything is perfect. These mini pork cheeseburgers are great for any home. You can make it your own by using your favorite cheese!
from The Food NetworkStar Studded Mini Pies You know I have to have something red, white and blue on the menu! Not only are these mini pies festive, they also allow you to eat dessert guilt-free! These bite size pies pack in all the taste with zero guilt. Fabulous!
