Memorial Day 2010
Memorial Day is a Federal Holiday celebrated on the last Monday of May. This year that will be the 31st of May. It was first observed after the Civil War to honor fallen Union soldiers. However, after WWI it was expanded to include all American men and women who had died while in the military.
Today, it is often thought of as the “unofficial start of summer.” Many of us traditionally gather with our families for the day to enjoy picnics, cookouts and Barbeques. We hope you do the same. Here is our Avanti Savoia suggestion for a spirited Memorial Day Menu. All of the recipes are on our website and many of the products are available through Avanti Savoia, as well. Have a great time and don’t forget the sacrifice of those that made it possible!
Should your gathering include vegetarians, the Barbecue Lentils and Pecan Rice should work just fine for their main course.Print Menu Add Avanti Savoia products to cart
