It is Memorial day and some might only think of it as the start to summer. This recipe does help give our pets a nice treat and a great way to cool down but I would like to thank all the soldiers that paid the ultimate price for my freedom.
Dating back to the end of the Civil War. In the spring time people began to show up at the graves of all the soldiers. They would clean them up from winter and pay their respects by leaving flowers, it became a day know as “A day of remembrance” but then in the early seventies it became Memorial day. So thank you to all the men and women who gave their all.
