Labor Day is the day we celebrate the hard-working men and women of America and their efforts to make this country as amazing as it is. Labor Day was officially made a holiday by President Grover Cleveland in 1894. It is a day of rest and relaxation for some and for us, it is time to party!
This year has been filled with unexpected challenges and we all deserve a bit of fun and comfort this weekend. Enjoying good food in great company is a surefire way to have a blast this Labor Day!
