Tasty Tuesday: Memorial Madness

It was an all-in-all successful Memorial Day. I realized that we had a cookout last Memorial Day, just after we moved into the house. Hard to believe it’s been over a year! Anyway, take a look at the goodies we enjoyed…

Want to make these little delicious treats? Just melt Hershey’s kisses onto tiny twist pretzels (275 degrees, 3 minutes), remove, and immediately press a single m&m on each. Refrigerate until eating to make sure they are deliciously solid!

See the iced tea I brewed? To try this flavored, yet unsweetened tea, just brew orange spice, orange pekoe, and lemon teas (4:4:2) in 1 gallon of hot water. Allow to cool and serve over ice!

My dad’s famous pasta salad. Sorry, can’t give out this recipe…but with pepperoni, pepper jack cheese, and green chilies, it definitely has a little kick :)

Chicken kabobs! A summer favorite. We also had burgers stuffed with cheddar and blue cheese, but as I was on grill duty they disappeared far too quickly for me to take pictures of them. I also highly recommend grilling a few skewers of just meat and just veggies just to have them on the side…

And though it was supposed to rain, it ended up being quite warm and humid. Luckily, Tucker found a nice cool spot in our bushes…
