Labor Day Weekend – It is unofficial end of summer weekend. My family says goodbye to summer and hello to fall all in one weekend. This weekend marks our last time on the beach and our first of many Saturday afternoons of college football (WAR EAGLE!) It is come to be our annual tradition to usher in fall by taking a trip out to the country on Labor Day for an early morning breakfast at our favorite maple sugar house Parker’s Maple Barn and then on our way home we pick apples at Lull Farm in Hollis, NH. I love the change of seasons and you will notice my menus echo this sentiment. This week’s grilling intermingles with spicy apples and chili. September is a transition month and I am getting ready to transition my menus to the heartier fare of fall. This week you will get a taste of what’s to come! Hope you have a relaxing Labor Day!
