5 Easy and Delicious Meals to Enjoy this Memorial Day

We can’t quite believe it’s almost memorial day ourselves but, sure enough, when you peer down the monthly tunnel, May 25th is in sight and will be here before we know it. These past couple months have seemed to drag out and fly by all at the same time, right? For many of us this Memorial Day is going to be a little different because we will likely not be able to surround ourselves with our beloved communities, whether that means your family, friends, neighbors, or beyond.

However, this shouldn’t mean that we don’t take the time to appreciate the company we have, reflect on our nation’s past with gratitude, and treat ourselves to a nourishing culinary experience. As always, we’re ready and eager to help you out with that last part. Below you’ll find a few products and complimentary recipes to consider this year. As you can imagine, demand is high right now and we are doing our best to keep as much in stock as possible so please feel free to peruse the store for additional inspiration, share your delicious experiences with us by tagging #cottoncattle, and let us know if you have any questions.
