BLACKBERRY BARBECUE SAUCE

~"Y'ALL COME OVER" 

This weekend, our country will celebrate Memorial Day. 
 We'll cook out, relax, and visit with friends and family. 
 As we celebrate the Memorial Day weekend,
let us keep in mind what we are "celebrating"~
those who made the ultimate sacrifice to ensure that Americans,
and people around the world,
would be able to reap the benefits of freedom.

  2. The barbeque sauce sounds wonderful and in the Pacific Northwest (where we used to live) the blackberries were so abundant! My grandparents always hosted Memorial Day and my favorite was the Cream Soda they bought...and all the salads. Monday will be quiet, but we've had a wonderful week at Hilton Head with our grands that is forever memorable! XOXO
