Do you have any fun plans to celebrate Memorial Day 2012? While the day is traditionally a time to think about those who have died in service to our country, food plays a huge part in the celebrations surrounding the day. This year, Memorial Day falls on my father-in-law’s birthday, so we will be celebrating with him. (When my husband asked him what he wanted for his birthday, he replied that he only wanted me to cook for him…specifically requesting my sweet potato pie as his birthday dessert. How sweet is that?!) Just in case you need to bring something to a picnic or cookout this weekend, below are 12 of my favorite Foodie City Mom recipes. Enjoy!
