In this post I’m sharing delicious Labor Day Eats.

It’s that time of year again, the end of summer is near, soon we’ll be celebrating Labor Day….here in America anyways.

What is Labor Day? Labor Day is an American holiday to celebrate the achievements and contributions of the American worker. It is also a weekend of celebration, relaxation and of course cookouts.

How do we celebrate Labor Day? As with most of our summer holidays, we celebrate with cookouts and often gatherings of friends and family.

Labor Day is also regarded as the unofficial end of summer for many so spend the day with all of the delicious foods that we associate with summer.

A last hoorah of sorts. Like many, we’ll be pulling out the grill and enjoy all of the fixins.
