Here is my Labor Day Menu. All grilled, all the time. It is the end of the summer and you and your family should spend the entire day outside. For that reason, my whole menu is cooked outdoors. It starts with some delicious shrimp and ends with a grilled nectarine. Also, included is a nice grilled lemonade cocktail that will keep you socially lubricated all day. Enjoy!

Dana and I are huge fans of Green Chiles. We love them on burgers and are huge fans of green chile enchiladas. We have them all of the time when we go out to eat.
