Labor Day Weekend Barbeque

I guess my husband and I are what some people call "foodies". I blame it on him, because he loves to cook, and he's always coming up with new extravagant things to cook. (It makes my cooking seem incredibly below-par.) We sometimes find ourselves disappointed when we go out to dinner because we know we could have had better at home. Therefore, our recipe collection is forever expanding.

With this weekend being a "long" one, we're of course planning to barbeque this weekend. And since the summer is drawing to an end, I'm sure many people will be having their last summer barbeques this weekend! Why not end your summer on a tasty note and try some new recipes?

*If you've never tried balsamic vinegar on watermelon, it's amazing! Make sure you use a good quality balsamic though, not too tart.

Of course you'll need some refreshing drinks to have. Try one of these classics-with-a-twist.

Italian Lemonade

White Peach Sangria

Finally, end your barbeque with a light, chilled dessert.

Have a safe and great Labor Day weekend everyone!
