I could not be more excited that the Labor Day holiday is upon us! Or as my husband likes to call it, second holiday of summer. (He can’t seem to keep Memorial and Labor Day straight.) I’m mostly looking forward to this weekend because I get to celebrate my dad and my brother’s birthday with a fun cookout at my house! Ever since we had our new patio installed earlier in the summer I have just been dying to host a party. There might not be any grass yet, and there are weeds all over my yard, but by God I’m going to have a party!

Whether you’re hosting this weekend or attending you might be looking for a dish to pass or something delicious for the grill. Below is a roundup of some of my favorite Labor Day recipes for you to try this weekend. Happy holiday-ing!
