For Potato Salad!
Tomorrow, Memorial Day, is the official start of the outdoor season. Picnics, patios, decks, beach houses, campgrounds, country concerts, tailgating~it's all fun. It's a wonderful time for family and friends to gather together and enjoy each other's company.
I make mine with tons of fingerling potatoes, fresh rosemary, garlic, olive oil, kosher salt and amazingly potent pepper blend from Williams-Sonoma. Room temperature the first day and then cold if there are any leftovers:)
Let's us not forget the reason for our remembrance of Memorial Day. I did a little research and wanted to share this wonderful website with ya'll. It's full of facts, speeches, poems & prayers, online activities, e-cards and so many other things to numerous to list. Please check it out.
Every year, my husband (a former Marine) and I go to the Raleigh National Cemetery. We don't know anyone buried there. We just go. We walk quietly holding hands. Looking at all the grave sites of those who have served our country. Many are from the civil war era. We think and reflect on our lives and know that we are so fortunate to live where we live and LIVE. I never leave without tons of tears.
Take a few minutes just to reflect on how fortunate we all are to be where we are today.
