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 my favorite potato salad, 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, any 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!
These are some of the main dish recipes I love to make in the summer for everyday fare or casual entertaining. Most are light, easy to prepare and budget-friendly. Many of the meats and some of the vegetables are grilled because I enjoy cooking outdoors as much as possible during the summer, although they all can be made indoors. Additionally, I include seasonal foods such as seafood, summer vegetables, fruits and berries, which are especially tasty and usually less expensive during the local harvest. I hope that you will try some of the recipes and enjoy!
