Escapes: Labor Day Meals

Long weekend. What are your plans? We plan on cooking – a lot. New recipes to test, and fresh market produce to enjoy. It’s the end of summer, and we’re always so glad of this long weekend to see it out in style.

We are thinking classic late summer picnic foods, but with a twist. Cool salads with Asian flavors. Butter cookies with fruity jam. Key lime pie ice cream. Seared steak and tomatoes off the (container garden) vines. Are you getting out of the city, or just enjoying a long, lazy day at home?

Tell us about your plans for Labor Day – any big meal ideas?
