While Memorial Day is a time for reverence, to honor those who have given their lives to military service for our great country, it is also a huge weekend for food and drink.
Countless burgers will be grilled, steaks will be marinated and beers will be consumed as we celebrate not only the military but all loved ones who have passed. Hopefully, the weather where you are allows for outdoor fun. My forecast looks a little iffy.
If you are looking for ideas for great food and drink, it would help to follow some Twitter accounts that provide you with recipes and tips for the big day. I've compiled a list of some of the best and most frequent tweeters from the food category that can assist you in your Memorial Day festivities.
I've only included food institutions and publications instead of personal accounts of known foodies, as they tend to also tweet personal stuff. This is about food. So here goes:
Drink Craft Beer - what's Memorial Day without some quality brews?
Yummit - food facts and recipes from a smaller source.
All Bacon - well, the name says it all. Essential.
Bon Appetit - a staple in good dining. Recipes, lists, and advice for food and drink.
