50+ Mouthwatering Labor Day Recipes


Labor Day marks the end of summer, and I’m especially sad to see summer come to an end this year. My twins are seniors in high school, so I feel like it was our last summer together. I love the long, lazy, sunny summer days with no schedules.

I plan to spend Labor Day outside soaking up a little bit of that last summer sunshine. So I’ve assembled a mouthwatering collection of recipes perfect for a Labor Day barbecue or picnic to help you and me plan a perfect meal to end the summer.

    This is a great round-up Barbara. I will have to try your pressure cooker potato salad. I am loving my pressure-cooker, but have not cooked potatoes. I love that you cook the eggs right with the potatoes…
