Ah, we are all in the teetering month of “May-be we can finish school this month, or May-be we have to go into June.”  The days are growing longer, and our schedules are filling up with all kinds of outdoor to-do’s, venues, and menus.   The end of this month marks the kickoff of summer gatherings with friends and family as we remember our military heroes on Memorial Day.  Whether you’re a host or a guest, the outdoor grill is fully ablaze, and you hope your dish to pass is simple, flavorful, and abundant. Tis the Season wants to help you in that quest!

Our full line of spice blends is perfect for adding flavor to any grilling expedition, many with multiple purposeful options.  Roasted Herb Rub, Coffee Rub, and Garlic Seasoning are fabulous on all prime cuts of beef, pork, and/or chicken.  Our Vegetable Dip is a perfect appetizer with any vegetable or fruit for the kids.  The Onion Soup Mix can be used as a soup or on my family’s favorite sausage, pepper, & potatoes one-skillet meal (this month only, I will include the recipe with every purchase!).

Just look at those savory potatoes, rich with turmeric spice.  Then, there is our hottest blend yet: Bacon Chili Cheddar Dip. This is one of the most versatile dips on the list!  The cayenne pepper adds a little heat to it, but it’s nothing anyone (including kids) will need to run from.  Simply add sour cream and mayo to just two tablespoons, and you’ll have an instant delight to enjoy with chips or pretzels, as a condiment for subs and hamburgers, or even as a baked potato topper…you could even add it to your sausage, pepper, & potatoes dish, if you’d like!  All of our spices are pre-packaged in 4oz jars that are sealed, and all of them are free from additives and preservatives and are gluten free!

Whatever your plans are for the day, I know my loyal homeschoolers won’t miss out on sharing what this day actually means.  For my family, Memorial Day brings us to our knees with thankfulness for all of the men and women in our armed forces who have passed.  In fact, my pre-teen boy is a member of Civil Air Patrol and has a desire to join the Air Force when the time comes. This past December, his squadron joined Wreaths Across America and went out to a local cemetery to honor our heroes in the most respectful and heart-touching manner this mama has ever experienced. To be honest, it is bringing me to tears, as I remember that day so vividly.  My only regret is that there was a limit to the number of wreaths, and I am making it my mission not to let that happen again this year.  Therefore, this month I am going to donate 10% of every sale made on my website directly to www.WreathsAcrossAmerica.org/NY0291P.  There is an added bonus on this website, too: if you search, you will find free curriculum to teach your children what Memorial Day is all about.

So, in closing, if you choose to purchase from me this month, use PROMO CODE: HONOR to receive $5 off your total purchase, while also donating 10% to Wreaths Across America.  Remember to request your free Scripture bracelets, too.  Lastly, please consider joining my Facebook and Instagram pages so you can become part of a community that strives to offer helpful tips and uplifting messages.
