Memorial Day Cookout

Hope everyone had a great Memorial Day! I also hope you remembered the reason we celebrate this holiday!
Today we had a cookout at our house, so I wanted to share some recipes with you!
Reed loved this! 
Pasta Salad
1 Bag Spiral Noodles
1 Bottle Italian Dressing
Handful of Cherry Tomatoes, sliced
1 Small Jar Sliced Olives
Cook pasta, drain and cool. Add dressing, tomatoes, and olives. Mix well.

 We also did "shrimp boil" kabobs on the grill. Here is the recipe I used:

I also  made some strawberry lemonade. Nothing fancy. Just used Country Time Lemonade mix and added sliced strawberries and lemons. Let the fresh fruit hang out in the lemonade for a while, then stir it, before you serve.

 For dessert, I did some Oreo Cookie Pops. Just poke a stick in an Oreo and dip it in melted almond bark. Use sprinkles to decorate.
And because not everyone could eat the cookie pops, I made a Sugar Free Berry Trifle. I made some sugar free vanilla pudding and mixed it with sugar free Cool Whip. I layered it with angel food cake and fresh strawberries and blueberries.


  1. You did a lovely job. Everything looks so festive and delicious. Beautiful trifle. No grilling here, as it rained all day and is still raining. We need the rain!

  2. Next Year I am coming to your house... yummy

  3. First of all, LOVE your porch!!
    And my mil makes that pasta salad, delish!!!
