Memorial Day Menu and Father’s Day Gift Ideas
It’s starting to feel more and more like summer! Can you believe it’s almost Memorial Day? To help you prepare for Memorial Day we have created a Cookout Menu! Grab your keys and head over to the Lancaster Marketplace at 2084 Fruitville Pike to get all the items you need for your Memorial Day cookout!
Memorial Day Menu
Grilling- Main Meal
The big question is what should the main meal be? Here are some ideas for you on the grill…
Breakaway Farms has meat that is grass fed and free of anything unnatural, perfect for a Memorial Day cookout! Try their beef burger patties, rib, ribeyes, filets, NY strip, and so much more. Pork baby back ribs and sausages are also popular for a Memorial Day cookout but that’s not all, they also have chicken sausages, turkey sausages, and lamb sausages! Stop by Breakaway Farms' stand where they can help you get the perfect meat for your cookout and cut any meat to your specification!
Sides for the Cookout
Need sides for your cookout or something to take to a Memorial Day cookout? We’ve got you covered. Here are our side suggestions...
Make a salad with fresh lettuce and spinach from Harvest Lane Farm. Top it off with some strawberries and cheese along with smoked almonds from Breakaway Farms and a Strawberry Vinaigrette dressing from Christina Maser Co.
Harvest Lane Farm has fresh fruit ready for you! Make a fruit salad of Strawberries, blueberries, apples, and pears for your Memorial Day cookout!
Grab some yellow squash, zucchini, broccoli, eggplant, asparagus, and peppers from Harvest Lane Farm to roast for an amazing side at your cookout! Just cut up all the vegetables, add some olive oil and spices and bake!
You can also create a veggie tray with carrots, broccoli, peppers, and baby tomatoes from Harvest Lane Farm!
Want something simple for a side or to a new item to try? You might want to check out Breakaway Farms’ smoked olives, almonds, and ranch pecans or stop by Flavor’s of Morocco for some flavorful hummus! The hummus might pair really well with the veggie tray.
Grab some salsa from Christina Maser Co. or avocados from Harvest Lane Farm to make guacamole to spice up the sides!
Desserts and Sweets
Dessert! You can’t have a cookout without dessert and other sweet treats! Pick up a box of cookies from Taylor Chip Co., European pastries from Tanya’s Pastries, Uruguayan pastries from Empanada Gourmet, or chocolates from Miesse Candies! Mix and match or just get one big box to share at your Memorial Day cookout!
Also, don’t forget you might want to pick up some all-natural hand sanitizer to keep hands clean and all-natural bug spray from Norse Naturals so you don’t end up with lots of annoying bug bites after your cookout.
Switching gears from Memorial Day cookouts to gift ideas for Father’s Day! Father’s Day will be here before you know it so here are some ideas to help you get a jumpstart on finding the perfect gift for Dad or that father figure in your life!
Does dad have a beard? If so, stop by Norse Naturals for beard oils, beard balms, a beard comb, and a beard brush! Perfect to help dad style his beard and keep it healthy!
Maybe dad likes the outdoors? Never hurts to have all natural bug spray to keep away the bugs without all the harmful chemicals! Norse Naturals has you covered there as well.
Make Dad a Meal
Have Dad over for a special meal! Grill up some meat from Breakaway Farms and roast some vegetables from Harvest Lane. For dessert have a sweet treat from Empanada Gourmet or Tanya’s Pastry. Or perhaps allow your father to experience the beauty of international foods by getting him takeout from Flavors of Morocco!
Or maybe Dad loves his coffee. Pick up a 12 oz. bag of Square One Coffee from The Lancaster Stroopie Co. and gift it with a handcrafted mug! When you buy a 12 oz. bag of Square One Coffee you receive a FREE 16 oz. drink. And, for double the coffee fun, Tanya’s Pastries has their own special blend of New Holland Roasters coffee for dad to try as well!
