Complete your Memorial Day with Frito Lay! Giveaway!

Many members of my family served our Country in several branches of the armed forces.  My Grandfather served in the Navy (WWII), my Uncle was also in the Navy during times of peace, my husband’s father served in the Army (WWII) and my Father in Law was a member of the Air Force (Vietnam).  On Memorial Day, my family definitely takes time out to thank our family members who served this Country to ensure our Freedom.  In addition to our thoughts and prayers, we also celebrate!

How to you plan to celebrate Memorial Day?

Whether it be a beach vacation, picnic or barbeque, Frito Lay has some great products to complete your meal!  The website has some great ideas for recipes and healthy snacking options including this Baked Bean Dip:


  • 1 slice bacon
  • 1 (15 ounce) can baked beans
  • 1 tablespoon grape jelly


Cook bacon in large skillet until crisp. Remove bacon, crumble and set aside. Drain bacon grease but do not wipe out pan. Add can of baked beans (including sauce). Bring beans to a boil. Stir in grape jelly and reduce heat. Simmer until liquid is reduced by half (about 5 minutes). Mash beans with a fork or potato masher and allow liquid to absorb. Add crumbled bacon.
