Labor Day Recipes and Menu

Labor Day is the unofficial end of summer, so why not bid the season farewell with an outdoor celebration. This menu includes delicious foods that are perfect for outdoor entertaining, but can be prepared inside if the weather does not cooperate. For the main dish, I chose roasted or grilled pulled pork butt roast, served as is or in sandwiches. The meat is bathed in a vinegar-based barbecue sauce, a popular Eastern Carolina staple. The simple sides include roasted sweet potatoes, bean salad, coleslaw, a must with pulled pork, and deviled eggs. Dessert is peach crisp, a delicious way to use local peaches, served with homemade or store-bought butter pecan ice cream. All of the recipes, most of which can be prepared at least one day in advance, provide links to alternate choices. Preparation notes are included to help you plan for the event. Enjoy and have a great Labor Day!

Potluck Recipes

I love a potluck or covered dish gathering, whether for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner. There is always a wide variety of foods from which to choose and I usually find something new and interesting. For this page, I have listed some of my favorite personal recipes that travel well, some of which are not typically found on a potluck buffet, others that are my versions of common dishes. Many are quick and easy, others take a bit more time to prepare, most of which is hands-off cooking. In addition to my own recipes, I posted quite a few shared family recipes for potluck foods submitted by visitors to the site. I hope you will try a few and enjoy!
