Summer Wrap-Up and Recipes For Your Labor Day Soireé!

Summer Wrap UpThese three boys are responsible for my having a fantastic summer!

I can only hope  summer felt longer to my kids than it did for me!  Somehow it flew by.  My boys and I spent most of it just hangin’ out together, and cooking on the weekends, of course!

So it’s time for the last summer BBQ (though there’s no rule about not having fall or winter BBQ’s)!  And here are a handful of my summer recipes for your Labor Day soireé!
