Memorial Day Special- 3 for 1

For anyone out there that is having a party, family reunion, picnic, or barbecue this weekend, here are a few recipes that are definitely great for a crowd. The pineapple recipe is one my mom has made for years and taken to every pot luck she goes to and it's always one of the first things gone. The coleslaw recipe is from Adam's Aunt Sue and I've been making it since the first time I ate it at a party she brought it too. And last, the potato salad is one I found recently and has become our favorite potato salad! I hope every enjoys this holiday weekend, eats well, and stays safe. Happy Memorial Day!!!!
