Today is Memorial Day and first and foremost I want to remember those who have lost their lives fighting for our country. Many have forgotten what this day means and only thinks of this weekend as a start of summer, barbecues and fun. As you are preparing for your Memorial Day dinner take a minute to remember and pay respect to those who sacrifice their lives for us and for those families that lost loved one.
The National Moment of Rememberance was passed in 2ooo which asks that all Americans at 3 pm local time will “To voluntarily and informally observe in their own way a Moment of remembrance and respect, pausing from whatever they are doing for a moment of silence or listening to ‘Taps."

Peaches cut in half and stone removed
Coconut oil ~ I use Tropical Tradition Gold Label Virgin Oil
Ice cream (optional)
Toasted coconut (optional)
Wash, half and pit peaches. Brush coconut oil over inside of each peach half. Heat BBQ, place peaches flesh side done on grill over hot stones and BBQ for 4-5 minutes until peaches are soft but firm and grill marks are on the flesh. Turn peaches over and cook for another couple of minutes.
Serve with ice cream and toasted coconuts for dessert. You could also serve peaches as a side for your meal.
I was given a free sample of Tropical Tradition Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil and I am not obligated to give a positive review for this product.
