Memorial Day will be here on Monday. How is everyone going to celebrate? I understand it’s hard to get excited about anything while being stuck at home.
But think of the first fresh corns of the year.
Or the first watermelon. Or the first water ice. Or the first barbecue.
See, there are reasons to be excited. And most beaches are open, I think. Going to the beach sounds like a great idea, doesn’t it? Maybe I’ll go very early and find a secluded place.
If not, a backyard barbecue still sounds good to me. Grilled corns shall be my reward for being homebound for the entire two months! ?
Now it’s time for Fiesta Features
“I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream! Come summer, that’s what we’ll do, so get prepared. This one is flavored with a childhood favorite fruity pebbles, so it gets my vote.” — Angie
“Pineapple Jam? That’s a thing? Oh my, Irene – that is so cool and I’m going to have great fun slathering it on everything! Where shall we start Angie?!” — Laurena
“Just the thought of these flavors combined into a salad is mind-blowing! Zeba, this certainly wins on creativity! I am so excited to try this!” — Laurena
“Oh, love this idea! Recycling at its best! I need to start saving jam jars so I can try this.” — Angie

Hi, Angie! I was thrilled to see my Chunky Pineapple Jam featured, thank you so much, to you and Laurena! This week I am sharing another way to use this jam, #14 Pineapple Bars; thank you Diann and Liz for co-hosting. Have a great long weekend!
Love the idea of pineapple jam, Irene. I’ve had pineapple tarts before and they were so yummy. Pineapple jam + piecrust, what could possible be better than that?! Maybe your pineapple bars ?

Thanks Laurena and Angie for the feature. I am hoping to finally host a backyard lunch with family keeping social distance somehow. It is the end of Ramadan and need to find a way to celebrate somehow … have a great long weekend
You’re welcome. That salad sounds so refreshing. Oh, definitely need to celebrate the end of Ramadan. Such an important event! And a great reason to have a feast ?

Oh gosh, what fun pics this week! I wouldn’t touch fruity pebbles with a 10 foot pole but that ice-cream!! I’d make an exception for that!
Have a happy & safe Memorial Day weekend everyone!
I’m much more into Special K myself these days. Not too sweet. But I’m with you on the ice cream ?
Have a wonderful Memorial Day Angie. Yes, it certainly won’t be a traditional one but I have a BBQ planned so it will still be fun. Thanks for assigning me to co-host. You take care.
We cleaned our deck and mowed the lawn. Well, mostly the husband and the son. I just supervised. Now we’re ready to fire up the grill. Such a nice sunny day, too. Thanks for cohosting!
