A cookout is always nice to have on Memorial Day. I like the above centerpiece idea. Daisies and red Carnations in a colbolt blue vase.
Then get the grill out and I saw a recipe for spice rubbed grilled chicken that sounded really good. I pinned the recipe on my Holiday recipes board on my Pinterest.
Old fashioned potato salad like my Mom used to make is always good for a cookout. She used to put celery, onion, pickle relish, mayonnaise, yellow mustard, celery salt, potatoes and Paprika for garnish. She used to put sliced hard boiled eggs across the top with the Paprika sprinkled on them. So good.
A nice Fruit Salad is always good for a cookout.
Grilled corn on the cob is a nice idea at a cookout. Then brush them with melted butter and a sprinkle of sea salt.
And then the above trifle is the perfect dessert. It has Angel Food cake cut into 1-inch squares after each slice has been brushed with a lemon juice, sugar and almond extract mixture that has been heated on the stove. The whipped cream has cream cheese in it. Yum! A trifle looks so fancy in a trifle container and it looks like a lot of work, but it’s very easy to make. I put the recipe on my holiday ideas board on my Pinterest.
