Labor Day Weekend Food Ideas

The last of the summer weather.  The last much-savored weekend of camping, or trips to the lake or just a backyard barbecue with friends and family.  This is probably my favorite summer get-together for food, since gardens and produce stands are bursting with fresh tomatoes and corn on the cob.  Here is a list of food ideas for that barbecue or potluck this weekend.  Go get that last sunburn of the year! Enjoy!!!

German Potato Salad--this would be nice with anything from the grill
Tutti Frutti Homemade Ice Cream--make this one.  Everyone will love it!
Fruit Cocktail Salad--it doesn't get easier than this.
Banana Cake--try this one in a Bundt pan and pour over Sour Cream Frosting for a gorgeous presentation
Spoon Burgers--this one would stay warm in a crock pot while you are enjoying some time on the lake
Pretzel Salad--especially nice with fresh berries
Old Fashioned Apple Cake--there were beautiful apples at the Farmer's Market last week
Summer Bean Salad--best with those amazing tomatoes
White Barbecue Chicken Sandwich--a twist on traditional barbecue sauce
Frog Eye Salad--a good make-ahead salad
Jello Jigglers--great for events with children, or for the little kid in all of us
Triple Surprise Bars--nice to have for grab and go, or car snacks
