Flanders Poppies

Posted by Hallee on May 31, 2010 in Life

During this busy weekend, did you see VFW (Veterans of Foreign Wars) members at intersections giving away red “Buddy Poppies” for donations? Did you get one? Did you wear it?

The VFW veterans are not an unaccustomed sight during the Memorial Day weekend, but do you know what the poppies mean? Do you know the story for the poppy being a symbol of remembrance for our war dead?

Gregg will be back with a creation post next week, but he emailed me this picture and asked me to wish you a Happy Memorial Day.




Natalee’s Memorial Day Cupcakes

Posted by Hallee on May 28, 2010 in Desserts, Hallee's Galley, Holiday fare, Recipes

My friend Natalee is a veterinarian living in Washington state with her husband and 2 awesome kids. Imported from Canada some years ago, she does things with cupcakes you just cannot believe.You can find her other amazing contributions to the blog here. I wrote her a couple of weeks ago and asked if she could do a cupcake for Memorial Day. I cannot tell you how thrilled I was when she decided to do something with Forget-Me-Nots. These flowers are traditional memorials for Canada’s Newfoundland’s war dead instead of the Flanders Poppies that are popular in America. These cupcakes are beautiful. She named them “Red, White, and Blueberry Cupcakes with Forget-Me-Nots.”
