Memorial Day weekend marks the start of Summer, (At least that’s true in ‘my world’) ~ And I’m sure glad it does, because I am more than ready to let the summer begin! :)
To me, summer means days filled with sunshine, long walks with my sister, family BBQ’s, homemade ice cream (oh yes…recipes to come!), laying out by the pool, vacation, and bonfires at night!
This past Memorial Day was a great start to summer~ and it was spent just the way it should of been…With my family! My sister, husband and I all had the day off of work, so we started the day early with a ‘bootcamp’ workout at our gym.
We came home, and my sister and I enjoyed some coffee and a Peanut Butter Protein Shake together!
We relaxed for a while, took the dogs on a walk around the neighborhood, (it was a sunny 85 degrees here in Michigan that day), and began to prep the food for our BBQ!
We prepared a Huge Greek Style Salad, Corn on the Cob (we made it by covering it in parmesan cheese, butter spray, salt and pepper, and wraped it in foil before we put in on the grill), Greek Style Feta Turkey Burgers, Grilled Asparagus, a Pasta Salad (recipe to come), and a Strawberry Trifle for dessert!
I also brought along a batch of my Guacamole and Falafel Chips!
Then we got to the fun part…Grilling!
Everything was grilled to perfection and tasted like Summer!!!
The trifle was a delightful way to end the meal, being that it was simple, light, and fresh!
We spent the rest of the day laying out by the pool, and relaxing! We also went to Walmart that night to look at mountain bikes…And since my birthday is coming up ;) I’m hoping I will be doing lots of bike riding this summer! :)
I hope you all enjoyed your ‘official start to summer’ as well! I also want to say a Special Thank You to all of the Men and Women who Serve our Country~ Providing the Freedom for us to Enjoy the Simple Pleasures in Life!
And speaking of Freedom, I can’t forget to thank our Lord Jesus Christ, who provided the Ultimate Freedom for Us…Not only in This Life, But in the Life To Come! :)
