Labor Day Menu's
      #1044793 - 08/24/09 09:09 AM (98.109.126.174)

Just curious, what are your Labor Day Menu's like?

Ours...
Deb's Baked Beans, hot dogs (beef, in casings), burgers, KFC cole slaw (I love cole slaw on a good hot dog and KFC does make a really good cole slaw!), Deb's macaroni salad & pies for dessert...
along with some MaDouDou, beer and other libations...
having a few friends over, around a backyard fire, and eating outside on the picnic tables...
weekend, so far, promises to be cooler and low humidity...

Deb's Macaroni Salad (excellent and refreshing):
one box Ronzoni Smart Taste elbows (High Fiber!)
chopped red, yellow & green peppers
chopped onions
chopped broccoli flowerettes
mayo & sour cream (about 1/2 & 1/2)
S&P

Yes, my very easy recipe is awesome.
Ingredients:
I pkg. coleslaw mix
1/2 bottle Vidalia Onion Salad dressing
1 T. onion powder ( you could add some diced Vidalia instead )

Mix all together and let the flavors meld for a couple of hours. Voila!! Awesome coleslaw!! Sometimes I add a handful of shredded carrots, too. Anything works. It's great with Broccoli slaw mix, too! To the Broccoli slaw mix I add some raisins and diced apple. Yummy!!
Enjoy!

looks like we'll be having about the same amount of people...
Your menu is a lot more extensive than ours!

Our plans have changed a bit though, as we're doing it with next door neighbors around their pool...
inviting a few of our friends & the people in our neighborhood...
which is not that much as there are only five homes in our neighborhood... and two families will be away on vacation...
