Happy Labor Day Weekend!

Summer has flown by this year! I can’t believe it’s already September, but I’m actually looking forward to cooler days and nights.

We have a completely packed Labor Day weekend planned including visitors from out of town, a Denver wedding, and the first sleepover for Theo with his Grandma!

Yes. That means Betsy and I will get a glorious night with no baby on board. What will we do? If I had to guess I would say, in this order:


Of course, our grill will be fired up throughout the weekend. I’ll also be posting one of my all-time favorite grilled dishes over the weekend so check back for that!

What are your grilling over the weekend? Leave a comment if you’re lighting the coals!

A few Labor Day inspirations for ya!

Homemade Bloody Caesar Fixins – This is a pretty awesome idea. Each of these things by themselves would be delicious, but all together? Forget about it. I need it. (@ The Food in my Beard)

Pitcher Style Margs – If there was ever a weekend for big cold pitchers of Margaritas, this is it (okay… and Cinco de Mayo… okay… any weekend really). This is an easy recipe though and you can finally ditch the really bad store-bought mixes. (@ Pinch of yum)

Salsa Verde with Hatch Chiles – This is a recipe that you need to make soon if you want to make it. I’m sure you could substitute other chiles, but Hatch are really special if you can find them. DO IT. (@ Brown Eyed Baker)

Blistered Sweet Peppers – I love buying the big bags of tiny sweet peppers but I usually just toss them in a salad. Love this idea of blistering them quickly on a grill. Great weekend appetizer! (@ The Cookie Rookie)

Have a great holiday weekend everybody!

  1. I’m for sure grilling up some hot dogs for the wife, and some pork cheddar bacon burgers for myself :) Probably going to add some peppers, zucchini and corn to the list, but most excited for the burgers!
