*This is a repost with an added blog hop from Susie QT Pies to give you some great ideas for the upcoming Memorial Day and 4th of July holidays.
It appears that we'll be nursing colds over the weekend, but we still want to celebrate Memorial Day. Since the girls are the healthiest among us, an easy no-bake treat was a good solution.
We had a flag Jello mold in the cupboard that we buttered and used to mold Rice Krispie treats, but you could simply use a 9x13 pan as well. The girls sorted out candy (M&M's and Skittles) to decorate. As the girls would say "easy, peasy, lemon-squeezy."
If you are looking for some flag history and symbolism to share as you work we found http://www.usflag.org/ to be a great resource. The History Channel also has information about how Memorial Day became a holiday.
Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend and God bless our men and women in uniform!
