It seems like just yesterday I was wishing for snow, and now summer is upon us here in the top hemisphere. Memorial Day, the day we honor and remember those men and women who fought and died serving in the Armed Services, is the unofficial marker of summer’s start here in the United States. It’s a day of celebration, of red, white and blue, of picnics and barbecues and joy, fitting for its purpose. (I won’t mention the miles long back-up of cars trying to get to the beach. Or pretend I didn’t.) Thanks to a great suggestion from reader, Heidi, I’m rounding up some Memorial Day favorites from Edible Crafts’ past and linking to some new ones.
