WHAT IS MEMORIAL DAY?
Memorial Day is an American holiday that’s observed on the last Monday of May. We honor men and women who served in the U.S. Military and made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. Many Americans observe Memorial Day by visiting cemeteries or memorials to honor our fallen heroes.
Memorial Day also serves as a time for family and friends to gather and share good times. As it unofficially marks the start of summer, many families celebrate by holding outdoor picnics and barbecues. And, since many of us will be indoors grilling over the weekend, we thought this would be the perfect opportunity to share this roundup of COLLAGEN packed Memorial Day recipes to share with the family!
