Memorial Day weekend signals the official start of grilling season.
I don't know who decided that we should all wear Bermuda shorts and fire up the grill on this particular holiday, but we do, and even though I grill all year (thanks to a covered porch and a gas grill right outside the kitchen door), I still plan to cook something outside, on the grill or over the fire pit, this weekend.
I might skip the shorts, though. I haven't got the knees for them.
If you haven't finalized your holiday menu yet, I hope you'll find inspiration from some of our favorites, made with basic ingredients from the pantry.
