Happy September!! Can you believe it?!! Can it really be Labor Day in only 2 days?!! That's crazy talk, but it's true. I have no idea what I'm doing yet or who of my family will be around and as I scrolled through my recipe index here on the site for some inspiration, it not only occurred to me that I've made a heck of a lot of food over these past three years but that you might be a little bit stuck as to what to serve for this last great hurrah of summer too! So to keep things calm and more manageable, I've compiled a list of some of our favorites around here, with a heavy lean on grilling since that's the traditional way we seem to bid goodbye to the lazy, hazy, sweaty season. There are Appetizers, Mains, Sides and of course, Desserts. Hope it helps! Have a fun, safe and delicious weekend and I'll see you on the other side with some great new autumnal seasonal recipes as we all get back into the bustle of regular life again! Happy early Labor Day and a great big happy birthday to my Mom today too!!! xoxo
