    Oh dear me, Mary, I haven’t eaten breakfast yet, and I am salivating over all your patriotic food! What I’m craving the most is one of those mini skillet berry cobblers. Thanks for all the Memorial Day inspiration.

    Memorial Day is a week early this year, as I just realized last week when I thought I had another whole week before the holiday, whoops 😳 I have been scrambling around trying to get organized and this recipe round up is going to come in very handy indeed! My family will be very appreciative if I whip up a Patriotic Berry Trifle or some Cream Cheese Ice Cream, and I know they would dig into the Blueberry Salsa, thanks Mary!

    These are beautiful photos! I am going to give the watermelon, feta and blueberry flag tray a try – I have a feeling it will be a hit with the kids! Pinning to share later too. I’m loving that BBQ in a mason jar too – never would think of that – incredibly creative. Just loved scrolling through your pics overall!
