Our family is big on traditions. Instead of having a bunch of stuff, we bring simple traditions into our lives. On Memorial Day we try to remember those who sacrificed so much so we could have the freedoms we do.
We do have a BBQ and enjoy family time. We try to always serve some sort of red, white and blue treat. This is one of our favorites:
Patriotic Fruit Salad with Spiced Rum and Honey
1 pound strawberries, chopped
2 apples, cored and chopped
6 ounces blueberries
3 tablespoon honey
3 tablespoon spiced rum*
Mix fruit together. In separate bowl, mix spiced rum and honey until combined. Drizzle over fruit, mix all together to coat. Chill for 3-8 hours. Stir before serving.
*For a non-alcoholic version use:
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice in place of rum.
