Monthly Musing - May

May 25, 2023


I'm joining Holly and Patty for their Monthly Musings.  We will be answering questions for the topic Celebrating Memorial Day Weekend.

Here are the questions:

Here are my answers:

1.  How are you spending Memorial Day weekend?  We will be going to a baptism and it'll be nice to spend time with my husband's side of the family.  We might go to the movies and we will definitely be having a bbq.

2.  Favorite ice cream?  I love mint chocolate chip and also half vanilla and half chocolate ice cream.  I also love ice cream sandwiches.

3.  Memorial Day travel or hang at home?  We will not be doing a lot of traveling and staying somewhat close to home.

4.  Burger, hot dog, or both?  I love both!

5.  Favorite cookout sides?  I love corn on the cob, and pasta salad.

6.  White before or after Memorial Day?  I usually wear white after Memorial day.

7.  Memorial Day traditions?  We always have a bbq.

8.  Share a summer recipe.  

I love peaches in the summer and one of my favorite summer recipes is this Peach Cobbler.  

9.  Parades, fireworks, or cookout?  I love having or going to a cookout.

10.  Show us your red, white, and blue!  One year at our bbq we had cupcakes that looked like a red, white, and blue flag.

Holly and Patty I enjoyed answering your fun questions about Memorial Day weekend.

Wishing everyone a happy and safe Memorial Day weekend.
