Spring Menus for Memorial Day

Spring Blossoms

The holiday weekend is approaching. I know many of you will be entertaining guests, so I put together some menu ideas to make your life easier—2 dinner menus plus a breakfast buffet—each featuring seasonal recipes from Gathering Flavors. I also created a list of assorted recipes from around the web for traditional and vegetarian burgers, ribs, corn on the cob and selected cocktails.  If you make the Prosecco and Aperol Cocktails from Lottie and Doof, I'll join you. Just tell me when to be there! Adjust quantities based on the number of your guests.

Have a great holiday weekend!

Relax and enjoy.

I look forward to seeing you in my kitchen, gathering flavors, soon.


Note: Please watch for my next post during the first week of June.
