This August I will be graduating, like many other college and high school students will be doing this year! No matter if grad season for you is in May, August, or December, you will definitely need some good food to serve at your graduation party! It is a big accomplishment to graduate and you deserve to celebrate! Try some of these Fill Your Plate recipes* out on your big day!
