The Ultimate Labor Day Menu

The Ultimate Labor Day Menu is a collection of delicious recipes from appetizers to desserts that will make your holiday weekend extra flavorful! 

Labor Day.

In t-minus five minutes. 

Are you armed and ready? 

Like I mentioned on Monday, we are still debating whether to stay home or flee to the mountains this weekend. Fingers crossed for the latter. BUT! Whether you are staying home or taking a trip over the holiday weekend, I wanted to send you guys off with a menu that is flexible, delicious and fully loaded. 

I’ve broken this menu up into five main categories: appetizers/snacks, cocktails, sides, main dishes, and desserts. I think I’ve covered all the bases. By just scrolling through I instantly get hungry and excited for all the weekend eats!
