Herb Organic Beef Burger:
Memorial Day is Monday May 28, and it’s time to honor our brave troops that have fought and died for our country and our freedom! It also means that summer is quickly approaching! This weekend jump starts the time to get out and start enjoying the great outdoors. Spending time with family and friends BBQing, swimming in the pool and eating yummy food that’s in season. I love this time of year and I’m really excited not to have too much on our schedule this weekend. Lounging sounds real good right now.
I had the grill cleaned and it’s time to fire it up! I’m making Organic Herb Beef Burgers with all the trimmings. Grilled onions, tomatoes, lettuce, pickles, hot mustard, mayo, blue cheese or cheddar cheese and anything else you could image. What’s your favorite burger?
Have a safe Memorial Day weekend and get to cooking!

Memorial Day is a federal holiday observed annually in the United States on the last Monday of May. Formerly known as Decoration Day, it originated after the American Civil War to commemorate the fallen Union soldiers of the Civil War. (Southern ladies organizations and southern schoolchildren had decorated Confederate graves in Richmond and other cities during the Civil War, but each region had its own date. Most dates were in May.) By the 20th century Memorial Day had been extended to honor all Americans who have died in all wars. Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces. As a marker it typically marks the start of the summer vacation season, while Labor Day marks its end.
