The best recipes to try Labor Day weekend

Even though I don’t have a traditional Monday through Friday, 9-5 {who does?}, I appreciate 3 day weekends. It’s an extra day to relax & enjoy friends & family or just get caught up on day-to-day tasks, which is exactly what I’ll be doing this weekend. I had planned to share a tutorial or our recently revealed hardwood floors today, but to be honest, I’m just falling behind! This weekend, we’ll be celebrating with friends over wine. Surprised, I’m sure! Whether you’ll be entertaining or just enjoying some down time at home, I wanted to share a few of my favorite Labor Day recipes with you, along with great recipes from other bloggers as well!
