End of the Summer Grilling Season

Labor Day Weekend is coming up and that is the official end to the summer grilling season.  It is also 3rd in line behind the other two summer holidays (USA) for the amount of grilling going on.  I'm that the start of college and pro football seasons affects the number of picnics and backyard parties that weekend.

For my international blog friends, the other two holidays for us are; Memorial Day Weekend and 4th of July.  Memorial Day Weekend starts the summer season as schools begin to close for the summer.  the 4th of July is our Independence Day Celebration and falls almost in the middle of the summer between the other two holidays.  Memorial Day and Labor Day always fall on a Monday.  That way most Americans get to enjoy a 3-day weekend.

Speaking of international blog readers, I would like to thank you for taking an interest in my food blog.  I do hope that it is helping you.  I, also, hope that the translation link is doing a good job of putting the blog into your language properly.

I continue to have a nice Russian following and I am very happy for that.  They have been far above any other country (outside of the USA) for a long time.  However, there has been an increased number of Latvia readers in the past month.  They have actually been having greater numbers than the Russians the last few weeks.  Germany and Canada are holding their numbers and France has been increasing a little lately.  I thank all my foreign readers and ask them to help spread the blog even more in their countries.  Now back to the Labor Day Weekend blog.

Still it's an opportunity for you to have a big summer ending event with family and/or friends.  So talk to them and get planning.  Heck, if you're not going to any football games that weekend, pull the big flat screen out on the deck.  Then you can catch a game and add a little more fun to your Labor Day Weekend Event.

I have two great grilling recipes this week that will work year-round on your grill.  The first is for a "Grilled Ribeye with Mushroom Topping" and you can change out the steak for your personal favorite if you like.  The second one is for "Grilled summer Vegetables" and here I use zucchini and summer squash.  However, you can use whatever summer vegetables are available or just the ones you like best.

So enjoy them and don't let the end of summer end your grilling.  Grilled food is too tasty not to do it year-round.  You will find more recipes for grilling foods in the recipe tabs.  By sure to check them out and keep on grilling and "Happy Cooking" too.
