Just A Few Labor Day Ideas...

I've gathered some Fun ideas for the BBQ this nice long holiday weekend!

Includes a couple more recipes for the last of the cukes from the garden.

Larger cherry tomatoes would be perfect for appys.

How about some different Salsas to choose from: 

Mustard Dill Cucumber Salad-A little different and very pretty!

Shish-Ka-Bobs are always fun and this post links to a few different flavor combinations:

BBQ Roasted Nuts-Everyone loves munchies!

Red, White and Blue Cake-The coconut decoration could be used on any cake 
and the tri-colored cake is easy if you have a checkerboard cake pan.

And if there's a little girl in your life, how about making a cute new Patriotic Barbie Dress
This one whips up in no time and any blue yarn would work for the bottom few rows.
Have fun this holiday weekend folks!
Eat much, stay safe and play nice:@)

  1. They all look yummy but I'm zeroing in on number one. I'm always looking for tasty ways to use up celery that I've purchased for other dishes.

    Happy holiday!


  2. I have just one thing to say ~ YUM!

    Big Texas Hugs,
    Susan and Bentley

  3. Oh my goodness...the cucumbers reminded me of when I was a little mom would make cucumbers like this that were so good..I think they are a PA thing...I have never seen them in CA! This is a must do for me....memories....

  4. Oh these all look so yummy! I love fresh veggies!

  5. It all looks delicious, Lynn. I would start with the cucumber salad because I just bought some lemon cukes at the farmers market. I hope you have a very happy holiday weekend.

  6. Hi Lynn Lal the shots make my mouth water. I am away to have dinner now.

  7. You've shared some really great ideas, Lynn....I would love to try the cucumber one (sans the hot peppers) if I can find a giardiniera mild enough. Some of those are even too hot for me.

    I am coveting your beautiful vintage ruffled dish, big time!! I have one with similar ripples but not the clear edge that makes yours so pretty. It is so true...we eat with our eyes first.

    I hope you have a relaxing holiday deserve it!!

  8. Wow those are some great ideas! I remember howich I liked the cuc lime salsa!

  9. The cucumber salad looks fantastic! I made salsa today. I think I need to try your special salsas too. Have a great wknd!

  10. Everything looks so yummy! Wish I had some cucumbers left in the garden. Enjoy your weekend!

  11. Looks like Labor Day Weekend at your house is going to be tasty! Enjoy!

  12. So many good ideas.

  13. What a delicious holiday sides round-up Lynn! Hope your Labor Day is filled with food & fun!
