Ideas for Labor Day

by Patricia on September 4, 2009 · 1 comment

Hi there everybody, guess what? It’s Labor Day weekend. Time for BBQ, beach, brownies, and bidding adieu to summer (though you wouldn’t know it with the weather around here… in the 90s all week, sheesh). If like me, you procrastinate and have waited until the weekend actually starts before deciding what you do or, more importantly, eat, here are a few ideas to get you started:

BBQ chicken (up close)BBQ Chicken is always a classic.

Pasta salad.Use up some of your garden veggies in a pasta salad.

Watermelon margaritaAnd wash it all down with a watermelon margarita

But what about dessert? Patience, grasshopper. I was just getting there…

strawberry-ice-cream-scoopWant something cold? How about strawberry ice cream?

Dulce de Leche Brownies

Chocolate more your thing? (and who could blame you if it were?) Dulce de leche brownies… although you may not want to share these.

Honey Caramel Peach Pie with sour cream ice cream

How about something a la mode?Honey Caramel Peach Pie with sour cream ice cream (or just store bought vanilla ice cream would be good here too)

Or if none of those desserts strike your fancy, you can find more chocolate desserts here and some cupcakes here.


But if absolutely none of these ideas are up your alley, well then maybe you should just take a hike… (or course I mean that in the nicest possible way… I’m planning on a hike sometime this weekend myself).

Whatever you do, I hope you enjoy your three day weekend!

Hey people, it is Labor Day! I’m enjoying my extra day off, and I am planning to doing something fun that’ll probably involve a bike ride and seeing something new in Sarasota I haven’t seen yet.
You write something new on a Monday at the labor day? … HApPY bLogGiNg!
