The Cookstr Weekly: Gearing Up For Memorial Day

May 16, 2014
While the official first day of summer isn’t until late June, we can’t wait that long to get in the warm-weather spirit of backyard barbecues, park picnics, and grilled everything. Luckily, that’s what Memorial Day is for! Whether you’re a grillmaster or a strictly indoor cook, pour yourself a glass of something fizzy and start menu planning.
Before you know it, the sun will (we hope) be out and you’ll be loading up your plate with some fried chicken or a burger and all the fixins’. I’m always in it for the side dishes – cornbread, baked beans, and of course, potato and pasta salad just how you like them. Happy pre-Summer!
Warmest regards,

Kara Rota

 “Fresh cherry pie is one of the treats of summer. May, June and July are the best months to bake a cherry pie. From early May through July, look for the sweet golden cherries with red blushing color known as Royal Ann or Queen Anne. In late June and July, try the tart red Montmorency cherries. Both kinds of cherries make great pies … just adjust the sugar.” – Beth Allen
