Memorial Day is when everyone is usually off from work and remembering all those men and women who died in military service for the United States. We all think about Memorial Day as a start to the picnic season, or as I think of it the start to summer as we know it want be long now till the first day.
To help you out with your Memorial Day party, I have a few tips to share with you.
#1 Finger Foods can be healthier than you think!
How about some great Classic Frito-Lay snacks, such as the Tostitos Scoops? They are made with only three smiple ingredients: corn, healthier oil and salt. Now just add in a great simple dip like this Mediterranean Dip:
1 Cup canned corn, drained and rinsed
1/2 cup roasted red peppers, chopped1 Tablespoon balsamic vinegar
Salt to taste
Mix corn, chopped peppers and balsamic vinegar together in a small bowl and refrigerate for 30 minutes or longer. Serve with Tostitos Scoops. (Makes 8 appetizer servings)
The great thing is that is only has 27 calories, 0.3 grams of fat, 5.5 carbohydrates per serving.
#2 Make clean-up easy and Earth Friendly!
Cleaning up after a party is such a hassle, but I am always the first to run out and get all the disposable tableware just so I can throw it away later. Can we say not eco-friendly!!!
This time I have went to google and did a search for "biodegradable utensils" and you will find a great list of companies that provide great products that are biodegradable and around the same price.
#3 Make a beach day, any day!
Just add beach decor to your back yard, blow up beach balls for the kids to play with. You can even use sand toys for centerpieces, even use clean sand buckets to serve the chips.
