HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY || 3 RECIPES


Today truly is a day for celebration, my sweet readers!  The resurgence of my blog and YouTube channel has fallen concurrently with one of our country's most important holidays, Memorial Day.  It is today that we gather around beaches and pools, picnic tables and family, in order to give reverence to and celebrate the lives of the fallen soldiers who make this country so great.

By the time you're reading this, I will have started my own Memorial Day holiday with an early morning hike up Stone Mountain in NC with a few close friends.  Following the trek, we will be returning to my church's evening picnic dinner.

As a vegan of 2.5 years now, I know well enough to attend said picnics and gatherings with my own provisions prepared.  In fact, being able to share with other attendants is one of my favorite parts of the events, because it allows me to gauge the unbiased opinions of omnivores.
In the spirit of sharing, I am thrilled to be able to bring to you my latest YouTube video along with the three full recipes in this post.  Be sure to check them out, and feel free to take some inspiration for your next holiday gathering!
