Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend

Happy Memorial Day weekend, friends! Are you excited for the three-day weekend? The weather here in the Heartland is beautiful (read: the sun is finally back!) and warm! What are your plans for the holiday? Last year, I broke out my beads and enjoyed a fun parade, and this year, I'm going to try to talk my mom into breaking out the BBQ for the inaugural grilling of the season. We don't have the best track record when it comes to mastering the art of the BBQ, so I'll keep you posted on how things go. In the meantime, I hope you have a relaxing weekend, and here are my favorite finds from the wonderful Web...

  6. When I've been away from Blogspot for awhile your blog is one of the first I look for.You sharing your world has helped me a lot.About BBQ, I boil any meat in seasoned water for a half an hour.I then let it rest on a paper towel for about 10 mins.Meat is cooked and you just need to sauce or season the outside on the grill.This really works.(All my BBQs before this were bloody and had to be nuked).Have a good week end
