Four Foods-Memorial Day Edition

It's been way too long since I last played! But with summer coming, I'm hoping to get back on track! If you want to play FFoF, go here!

#1. Do you celebrate Memorial Day with a picnic, cookout, road trip or some other way?
Growing up, we always went to our neighbors house for a pool party and cookout. But as of late, I'm usually working. Exciting, right? haha.

#2. What are staples at your summer time cookouts?
Big watermelon slices and icy cold beer.

#3. What drink do you find most refreshing on a hot summer day?
Ice cold water with fresh lemon slices.

#4. Share a recipe for a picnic side dish.
Chocolate Covered Strawberries
4 ounces (about 3/4 cup) Chocolate Chips- I like to do 1/2 white and 1/2 semi-sweet
12 strawberries

Line a plate with wax paper or parchment. Place chocolate chips in a glass bowl or measuring cup and microwave on high, 1 to 2 minutes, or until melted and very smooth, stopping to stir about every 20 seconds. One at a time, dip strawberries into melted chocolate and place on the prepared plate. Refrigerate about 10 minutes to harden. Store covered and refrigerated up to 1 day.
To pack: place in flat bottom container with fat lid r and place a bag of ice on top and below)
