A simple marinade makes for delicious grilled lamb shops. Simplicity is my theme for labor day weekend

A little orzo or couscous salad with fresh thyme and lemon and platter of grilled veggie kabobs, roasted corn and a few bags of Tate’s chocolate chip cookies on thr go and you can head to a beach picnic at sunset or enjoy a relaxing day by the pool.

New creative cocktail mixers make craft cocktailing at home a breeze so make sure you watch out cooking video for extra tips.
