It’s so strange to think that we’ve been back in school for 2 weeks already. Gone are the days of not starting school until after Labor Day. But, sometimes it’s nice to have a long weekend after the transition back to the routines of getting up early, homework, and school sports.

I know we are looking forward to the long weekend for sure! It’s been a busy start to the year already and it will be great to have an extra day to recharge after the busy end to August.

I have no idea what we’ll be making for our Labor Day BBQ yet, but I’v been browsing through my Recipe Archives for ideas. Here are some of the top contenders!
