Appetizer: Fried Green Tomatoes
I grew up eating these fresh from the frying pan. Crispy yet juicy, the tangy flavor of the green tomatoes adds just the right kick. There are fancier recipes out there, but the I prefer to stick to the basics.
Side Dish: Deviled Egg Potato Salad
How do you make potato salad better? Add deviled eggs! This spin on a classic dish is so good, your friends will be asking for the recipe.
Main Dish: Grilled Barbeque Ribs
On Labor Day Weekend, firing up the grill is a must. This recipe takes a bit of work, but the end result is finger-licking perfection. The sticky brown sugar glaze is addictive-goodness, too.
Drink: Spiked Sweet Tea & Lemonade
No barbeque is complete without a pitcher of sweet tea. A perfect summertime cocktail, the combination of iced tea, lemonade and vodka. is smooth and refreshing.
Dessert: American Flag Cake
This recipe lets you have your cake without having to turn on the oven. Total bonus on hot summer days! Summer fresh strawberries and blueberries help make the cake not only patriotic, but seriously scrumptious.
