In the United States of America, the first Monday in September is Labor Day. So that makes it this weekend!
It’s a legal holiday here and, because of that, we all get a day off from work or school… normally on Monday.
That makes it a long weekend… Sadly, it’s also sort of a “goodbye” to summer :-(. But, the day is usually perfect for a cookout if it isn’t raining or too cool!
This year, I’ve planned a simple meal Monday which will include some old favorites…

And, one way you can add to the celebration is by using colors to enhance your meals to make them exciting and enjoyable!
So, this week, I’m going to make my gluten-free menu plan shine by celebrating summer with…

Some of the recipes we like from the oven in cooler seasons are a special treat this time of year, when usually we're sweltering in Lake Erie heat and humidity.
Everything in this menu plan is gluten-free, but each recipe is good enough to serve to mixed groups. As I have mentioned in the past, this blog is about gluten-free food that even my husband likes!
