Pick 6: Labor Day Recipes

Pick6_LaborDayRecipesWe are in the last month of summer and not only am I thinking about school (did you see Annie’s Pick 6: Grown-Up School Supplies post from Tuesday?), I am also thinking about Labor Day. I had a funny thought today about how the summer begins with Memorial Day and ends with Labor Day, with the Fourth of July smack dab in the middle. Curious am I, likely late to the party.

I like Labor Day for a couple of reasons: (1) another opportunity to be reminded of our armed services who project us from near and far, (2) every couple of years my birthday is on Labor Day and (3) Labor Day marks the end of summer and a final chance to fill up on the flavors of Summer. For me flavors of summer include fruit, corn, tomatoes, sangria, kebabs, avocado, and anything grilled!

Here are some recipes that embody some of my favorite flavors of summer and would be perfect for a Labor Day celebration [and yes, I picked two desserts because … why not?]:

  1. Easy Sweet Potato Veggie Burgers w/ Avocado via lunchboxbunch.com
  2. Star Spangled Sangria via InStyle
  3. Pesto and Cream Cheese Stuffed Cherry Tomatoes via mother thyme
  4. Grilled Corn Salad w/ Honey-Lime Dressing via girlichef
  5. Apple Pie in a Jar via Glorious Treats
  6. Brownie {& Fruit} Kebabs via Mel’s Kitchen

 What are your favorite flavors of summer? xoxo ‘n lols, crystal
