Well, Mother's Day has passed and we are well into spring in the Northeast USA. Today, 5/25, is Memorial Day......the day when we honor our heroes who have made the ultimate sacrifice for their country.
Today, ceremonies will be held across the United States to honor these brave men and women. Places like Arlington National Cemetery in Washington, DC.
In California, volunteers at the Riverside National Cemetery have been reading 148,000 fallen soldiers' names in a ceremony that has lasted ten days. There are 300 volunteers. There are 2,465 pages of names. The last page will be read today.
GOD BLESS AMERICA on this Memorial Day.
Barbeques are the feast of choice at Memorial Day gatherings.

Cut the veggies into chunks and strips. Marinate with pepper, GARLIC, and ONIONS.
PS: Take it easy on the salt.

Once grilled, add some other spices if you like and a 100% Virgin Olive Oil touch.
The olive oil is your daily intake of fat.
And....what about fish? Fish is a good source of protein. Consider grilling some TUNA.
Tuna is low in fat. Eat healthily, live longer, and..................
