Labor Day Weekend Recipes

Labor Day weekend is upon us. For most, this means a long-weekend, no work on Monday, and perhaps a last summer BBQ. Labor Day is a holiday meant to honor the American labor movement and the contributions that workers have made to the strength, prosperity and well-being of the country. And New Frontier Home Care thinks: What better way to celebrate than by whipping up some delicious food?
