Memorial Day marks the unofficial first day of summer. We feel the best way to celebrate the start of summer is to spend it out on a boat with some of your favorite people. While you’re out on the lake you don’t want to forget to bring some great easy snack that even the kids will love and may a few drink for the adult aboard.

Pepperoni Pizza Puffs 033

Frist thing to remember to bring are the Pepperoni Pizza Puffs. Between being in the sun all day or swimming all day, I’m not sure which will make you hungrier, but these fluffy mini pizzas are sure to hold you over until dinner time. Be sure to check out Lick the Bowl Good for the recipe. Bacon-Cheddar-Jalepeno-Pinwheels1
