Memorial Day and Family Time

Yesterday, being Memorial Day, Julia and I drove down to our town’s graveyard to walk among the graves of veterans.  They are easy to spot, because every one of them is faithfully marked each year (from Memorial Day through Labor Day) with a flag in honor of their service.

Then it was home in time for Walter, Felicity, and the kids to arrive!  We kept the dinner plans very simple, since I had been sick all week, with Colette and Technohubby doing the bulk of the work.  The menu was:
Applewood Smoked Brisket
Old-Fashioned Potato Salad
Fruit Salad
Potato Chips & Dip
Homemade Raspberry Lemonade
Peach and Wild Blackberry Cobbler with Vanilla Bean Ice Cream
It was our first time trying out the new smoker.  It took six hours to smoke a six pound brisket, so there was plenty of time for snacks and fun.

At long last the meat was done.  He was quite pleased with the results!  Delicious!

And at the end of the day, we kicked off the start of summer with some sparkler fun!
