LABOR DAY: Bringing Home the Bacon

Labor Day is dedicated to the contributions American workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country so let’s celebrate those who “bring home the bacon”. Labor Day is the unofficial end of summer and what better way to celebrate than an end of summer party.

To give ourselves a challenge we wanted to see if we could plan a “bacon” themed party. We put together a party menu of great bacon recipes we found so let us take the “labor” out of your Labor Day party.
