TMA Mondays: Long Weekend

Memorial Day is all about remembering and celebrating those who serve to protect us. But we all know it's also about ringing in the summer. The weather was perfect for brushing the spider webs off the grill and grilling anything from burgers to pineapples to steak.

Not everyone was outside grubbing during the day, including me. This Saturday was the first day of Ramadan, the holy month when Muslims fast from dawn to sunset. Happy Ramadan to all those observing!!

 

Our Pick of the Week

Nue, Capitol Hill - Their new Mint & date frozen yogurt is the perfect treat to cool you off no matter what time you are eating.
