Memorial Day was last weekend here in the USA, it always conjures up images of beaches, boats and barbeques. Besides looking forward to a nice long holiday weekend, we also remembered the men and women who sacrificed their lives. I saw a post just recently with the words “Home of the free, because of the brave”! How very true!
We got invited to a barbecue, and when I asked the hostess what I could bring to add to the menu, she said “I think we’re ok, but just because it’s you, I’d ask you to please bring something”. Now I wasn’t quite sure how to take that, was it a compliment I wondered? :). It’s fairly known around these parts that I enjoy cooking, and that I love cooking for others even more. I decided to bring my infamous Pear and Cheese Tart – hardly barbecue worthy, but what the heck I thought! It’s a recipe passed on by cousins Joe & Noreen, and it has forever had rave reviews.
