Make Your Memorial Day Memorable

memorial dayFor more than 150 years, Americans have gathered in late spring to honor the sacrifice of those who have given their lives in service to our country. What began with dozens of informal commemorations has grown to become one of the nation’s most solemn and hallowed holidays.

Here are 4 things to do on Memorial Day to pay tribute to America’s heroes and celebrate the start of summer:

  1. Proud Parade

There just might not be a better place to spend the weekend than experiencing the country’s largest Memorial Day parade in Washington, DC. Arrive early with a bag of pork rinds to get a seat.

  1. Host a barbecue

After the parade, invite your family and friends over for the season’s first cookout. There’s nothing more exciting than firing up the grill (or the smell of lighter fluid and burning charcoal).

Looking to add something new to your grilling menu? Try one of our classic barbecue recipes that uses Southern Recipe Pork Rinds as the secret ingredient. Check out this Rind Covered Rib RecipeBeefy Pork Rind Burger Recipe or Moonshine Burger Recipe.

  1. Pay tribute

Pay tribute to those who have lost their lives fighting for our country by visiting a local veterans’ cemetery by placing flags and flowers to place on the graves.

  1. Thank a veteran

Organize your neighborhood kids to write thank you cards to veterans across the country — or better yet, send a care package to active troops (don’t forget the pork rinds).

At Southern Recipe, we believe Memorial Day should become something more than just the first cookout of the summer or watching the Indy 500. And although we love celebrating an extra day off, we are proud to honor all who have sacrificed so much for our country.

I’m Comin’ Home Mama!

pork rinds for mother's day

What more can we say about mom? She was in labor for [insert hours] when you were born, now it’s your turn to repay her with gratitude. (Now doubt we love moms. Check out our family matriarch here.) Change up Mother’s Day with these 4 ideas that will be a joy for mom and you.

  1. Hit Up the Dive Bar. Unconventional, but remember mom wasn’t always, well mom. She got out and enjoyed life well before you were even a thought. Tip: fill up on a high protein Southern Recipe Original pork rind snack before hitting the town.
  2. BBQ Time. Forget about that stuffy (and expensive) Mother’s Day brunch. Plus, when was the last time you got your belly’s worth? Did they serve up your favorite Hot & Spicy pork rinds? We bet not.Instead, fire up the grill (clean the grates, it is of course for mom) and try this Grilled Pork Stuffed with Pork Rinds recipe.
  3. Pull out a long lost memory. Share a fun – or funny – memory. Find that first-grade photo with the bad haircut or reminisce about the time she chauffeured you around on that awkward first date. Reliving the memory will bring joy to mom, and yes a little embarrassment to you.
  4. Don’ts: a) don’t get her something that she hates (for example, if she hates to vacuum, don’t get her a new vacuum cleaner). b) don’t fight with your family on her day. Crunch on some Bar-B-Que rinds instead of your siblings. c) don’t forget to at least call, no matter how old you are, you still are her little baby.
