Memorial weekend went by so fast. It was great to spend the long holiday weekend with family in my husband's hometown. Their grill was put to good use and with the family's expert griller, my sister-in-law ( she has been master of the grill since she was young ) turned out juicy hamburgers, bratwursts, chicken and beef shish kabobs and colorful mixed veggies, the entire weekend. Mom-in-law marinated these kabobs only for a few minutes and they turned out to be so flavorful. We had her special treat, a light dessert made of angel food cake, sliced bananas and vanilla ice cream with pureed apricot sauce. My cousin visiting from Manila came with us and she had the most memorable American holiday tradition of grilled picnic food. My in-laws' screened in porch was our daily venue and it was so refreshing and relaxing to have all our meals there. It was a fun weekend with good company & good food, a perfect combination.
