Pardon my French, but I am SO DARN EXCITED FOR MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND! Ahem.

It feels like the stress and anxiety of the past year is lessening each and every day, and I’m beyond excited to usher in summer with a holiday weekend that honors service and expresses gratefulness.

Ben, the kids, and I have some fun plans on deck, which I’m excited to share with you later on, but first we’ll be gathering with friends and family to eat, drink, and be merry with many of the gluten free, Memorial Day-friendly recipes below. These recipes celebrate the best flavors and ingredients of the summer season.

Bring. Them. ON!

Must-haves for us from this list are my Mom’s Classic Potato Salad, Judy’s Baked Beans, and Pickle Wrap Dip. Plus The Best Pasta Salad, Lemon Bars (no, Oreo Fluff…no, Triple Berry Crumb Bars! #decisionsdecisions) and more Secret Ingredient Rosé Sangria then you can shake a stick at.

I can’t say a sizzling brat or 7 won’t make its way in there somewhere too.

No matter what you have planned for the upcoming weekend I hope you celebrate safely and have fun!
