Get Ready for Pool Season

Memorial Day is coming up and summer is around the corner. You know what that means—pool season. Here are some tips on how to get ready for some days in the sun!

If you have your own pool, you know a lot of work goes into opening it for the summer season. Need help? Call a friend or family member to help you get the pool in tiptop shape. Try to open your pool early, that way when the first hot day arrives you are ready to go. Make sure you always test your water to ensure it is safe for everyone to enjoy. You can buy test kits at your local pool store.

Don’t forget the most important part of pool day, the snacks! Sandwiches and finger foods are tasty, easy solutions for the pool day hungers. Visit your grocer’s deli for a variety of Deli Meats and Chicken Wings. We’ve got some delicious sandwich ideas too, like the BBQ Ham Sandwich or the Cable Car Sandwich.

When lying out in the sun don’t forget the essentials: sunscreen and a good book. Check out the Meal Ideas on for more summer recipes.
