Welcome to 2019's edition of Blog With Friends. Where a group of bloggers get together, chose a theme and collectively post on the same day reflecting our own style and take on the theme. For May we have chosen May Day.
For me, as a food blogger, I had to think of "what" I could come up with to translate May Day, especially after researching the holiday. Hmm...okay. Grilling. Camping. Campfire meals. Meals by the fire...I might be on to something.
So I went with these delicious chops! Fire seared/grilled to perfection and topped with a lovely lemon dressing/sauce.
If you're like me, May Day brings back memories of grade school and May pole dances, which I later learned in life had to do with fertility. Guess our teachers should have done their homework. I'm sure my mother would have had a proper Southern hissy fit if she had of known this little fact.
So with that in mind I decided to do some research on May Day. Here is what I found...
One last thing about May Day.
Do you know what May Day has to do with the international distress call, "Mayday, Mayday, Mayday"? Nothing, as it turns out. The code was invented in 1923 by an airport radio officer in London. Challenged to come up with a word that could easily be understood by pilots and ground staff in case of an emergency, Frederick Mockford used the word "mayday" because it sounded like "m'aider," a shortened version of the French term for "come and help me." Interesting.
Please be sure and pop over to the other pages and see how they interpreted our May Day theme.
