Happy Memorial Day!!!  This time of year kicks off the grilling season for many, although with this mild winter we’ve had I’ve been grilling since February! Either way I plan on firing up the grill Monday for a small family BBQ and having a s’mores bonfire  later that night (if I decide not to make the s’more cupcakes again. They are calling me y’all!!!)

Wanna know what I’ll be whipping up for Memorial Day? Well..I’m going to tell you anyway! : ) Check it out my memorial day menu below!! I always say I’m going to “cook a lil something” and then it turns into a cookout-style Thanksgiving! This year though, I’m keeping it super light. Seriously. I’m for real.

Also I’ve included more cookout recipes below that will definitely rock out any Memorial Day Menu!!
