I started on my Labor Day preparation last week by sharing my first Friday Five – Labor Day addition. So I am getting serious this week. No time to spare. Were you worried about your menu? What to make? Worry no more. I give you the Friday Five – Labor addition 2.
So before we start eating, we have to have a drink. Don’t we? I do, and we do, in my family. This Rum Punch from Climbing Grier Mountain hits the spot.
So, it is time to get into the food. I love jalapeno poppers. So how about a dip of Grilled Jalapeno Poppers from The Messy Baker.
And did you say you like spicy? In an ode to my Southern brethren and my new friend Rachel, try these Black Bean and Sweet Corn Pico De Gallo created by A Southern Fairytale (and you will catch her out in her boots all the time!).
So time to get traditional and I am from Chicago. You know what that means? Yup, the Chicago Dog. This Chicago-Style Hot Dog was created by Mom on Time Out.
My love of Southern food is well documented and what is more Southern than pulled smoked meats. This Pulled Barbucue Chicken Sandwich developed by Ingredients, Inc looks great and has my name all over it. I hope you agree.
Do you want some french fries with your hot or sandwich? Check out my Twice Fried Fries recipe at, you guessed it, Feed Your Soul Too.
We need some sides to go with our meal and I love potato salad. It is actually hard to do potato salad well. Lose sleep no more. Look at this Summertime Potato Salad by The Picky Eater.
What Labor Day menu would be complete without a pasta salad? So I give you this Broccoli Grape and Pasta Salad developed by What 2 Cook.
Now, I am not sure if you have room for dessert, but if you are from the Block family, you always have room. How good does this Gooey Cookie Dough S’More look from my friend Lisa, the Creole Contessa.
