Monday Moments~ I am posting a few days ahead of Monday with the hope that it will make an impact for the entire weekend. I am excited to usher in the summer season, enjoy the pool opening, and throw some meat on the grill. However, Memorial Day is not about those things. It is about honoring those men and women who have served our country and given us the freedom I hope we all cherish. Three years ago we spent Memorial Day morning at Arlington. If we were going to be in this area longer, I would make this a family tradition. Lest we forget...
A heart felt and sincere THANK YOU to everyone who has ever worn a uniform. God Bless our United States.
Tastē Tuesday: As part of little boy #2's plane themed birthday, I made an airplane watermelon and sugar cookies. The sugar cookies were not intricate, but I did try out a buttercream frosting instead of the traditional royal icing that hardens and allows treats to be bagged without ruining the design. The buttercream crusted nicely, and I think I will use it again as it kept a more traditional sugar cookie with frosting taste and texture to the party favors!
Being that warmer temperatures are hitting the nation, fruit has been high on my consumption list lately! There are tons of simple but cute ideas to add some festivity to your fruit salad, so if entertaining is in your future for a birthday, Memorial Day Weekend BBQ, etc., google your theme. I bet you find a quick and easy way to add something special to your party table!
