Top Ten Labor Day Cookout Recipes

Top Ten Labor Day Cookout Recipes - Chew Nibble Nosh

Ah, Labor Day weekend…summer’s last hurrah.  A time to gather together, slap on some sunscreen, hang out at the pool one last time, and have a cookout.  In honor of that last hurrah cookout, I’ve put together a list of some of my favorite summer recipes from past posts to ease your menu planning along.  And, now that I’ve had a good look at some of these again, they may be making an appearance at my own house this weekend. Bonus!

In the Munchies for the Pool category, we have this super simple Black Bean, Corn and Avocado Salsa

Pearl Couscous with Roasted Butternut Squash and Preserved Lemons

Yesterday, the temperature outside finally dove into “almost chilly”.  It was wonderful!  It’s creeping back up into “warm” today, but yesterday sure did feel like fall.  To celebrate the occasion, I decided to put together a dish I’d come across that looked to epitomize fall.  I found this recipe while looking around for ways to use the preserved lemons that I’d made.  When I started the lemons, though, it just wasn’t quite time yet for this type of dish.  Now that we’re into October, and I can confidently wear jeans and a long sleeved shirt outside without turning into a puddle, we’re good to go.
