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!

Grinding your own meat allows you to get more flavorful cuts. That way you do not have to add a ton of seasoning to the burger, to make it taste good. This burger only requires a bit of salt and you are good to go. Add your favorite cheese and you have the ultimate burger!
I am a huge fan of grilling. The only problem is that most sides are not grilled. This salad solves that problem. The corn is fire roasted on the grill so you can make it right along with your steak or barbecue dishes. In addition the grilled corn adds a bit of smokiness to the salad to make a complimentary flavor to your barbecues. This is a great side dish for your summer picnic or barbecue.
I have discovered that stone fruit works great on the grill. This is the type of fruit with a hard pit in the center. Peaches, nectarines, etc. Then I discovered that honey and balsamic vinegar work really well together. I must say that if you have never combined honey and balsamic vinegar, you have never lived. It is delicious. A must try.
