Hey Guys…Are you ready for the upcoming long weekend? Any special plans?
Cause I can tell you without a doubt that I am!
And this Easy Dill Pickle Cheese Ball would be the perfect addition to your weekend and mine!
Especially since my week was a little more stressful than I would have hoped for, I’m definitely ready for the extra day to Regroup.
Memorial Day weekend has always been one of my favorite holidays…mainly due to the kick off of Summer!
Vacations, BBQ’s, Picnics, Pools and everything else all in between 🙂
But I know Memorial Day really signifies so much more than all of that.
So as much as I appreciate the extra long weekend, I also try and remember Why we are celebrating it.
And also how truly grateful I am to be able to celebrate it with family and friends.
But if you’re not living in the United States and celebrating Memorial Day, it’s still a great weekend to start thinking about all the yummy foods associated with Summer!
So don’t let all the busyness of Summer keep you from enjoying good food.
Cause guess what?? A lot of Summer foods can be made ahead making it easier when planning meals.
