Recipe Ideas For Your #End of Summer Dinners!

Summer is ending, 15 recipes to send it off in style.

Summer is said to officially end on Labor Day.

Yeah. As soon as I saw the school buses on the road again two weeks ago, I had to sigh.

School buses signify back to the everyday grind until that short break in December.

It’s still warm and sunny until 8pm so why not still enjoy on of the best things about the season?

No, not the beach. Eating!

Still time to chow down on fresh fruit, grilled veggies, and tropical drinks.

Which brings me to the topic of the day: The Recipe round-up!

You may be familiar with my previous roundups on meal prep and budget meals

So today I bring you 15 recipes that covers the bases of gluten-free, omnivore, vegan, & pescatarian.

Let’s get started.

#END OF SUMMER DRINKS


Non ETOH Sangria.

Jaimie’s non alcoholic fresh and fruity (Isn’t that the name of a pancake?) Sangria at lovebakesgoodcakes.com is up first.

Loaded with fresh fruit, an option to make it less sweet, and safe for the under 21’s; it’s easily better than soda.
