Food and the City: labor day party planning. Yum

August 27, 2013

labor day party planning.

When did it become almost Labor Day? When did summer practically end, and where did August go? I just want to know. I love Fall more then life itself, but really, where did summer go? It feels like just yesterday I was sharing my roasted vegetables recipe with you to talk about how excited I was that summer was s t a r t i n g. Now its over.


Although part of me is so excited for fall, looking back at the summer I had, I'm definitely going to miss it. Like when I had the amazing opportunity to film with Sauza Tequila and have an awesome girls night with some really sweet gals?

Or how we spent almost our entire summer vacationing in Las Vegas, which has now become our second home.

What about when we went to San Diego? That was great. I'm really going to miss you, summer.
But.... I guess since we have to come to terms with summer coming to a close, I'll do what I do best and force you to plan a party. Okay? Above are some things I have picked up for the get-together I'll be having this weekend, and I'm pretty sure you need most of them in your life for the fab party you may or may now be planning this weekend. 1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6

Also, be sure to pick up some of the infamous Hebrew National Beef Franks, that I've been showcasing all summer, to be apart of your Labor Day yummies. Like I've mentioned many times before, these are mr. d's absolute favorite franks to throw on the grill, so naturally it has been an honor to have been in a partnership with them!

PPS - Since you guys loved the roasted vegetables recipe I posted in the beginning of the summer, I thought what better recipe to share at the end of the summer then this same one again. Make this dish as a side for your labor day festivities and you will have lots of happy guests!

I hope you all have an amazing Labor Day! Relax and have a cocktail (or 5) for me!

Basic Roasted Vegetables

No specific measurements for this recipe, but I used:
1 Zucchini 
1 Purple Onion 
1 Potato 
1/2 of a 8oz package of Chopped Mushrooms
1/2 of a 12 oz package of fresh Broccoli Florets
3 T Olive Oil
1/4 T Kosher Salt

Preheat oven to 400.
Wash and dry all of your vegetables. Cut them up in any desired shape and add them to a greased baking sheet. Drizzle on your olive oil and sprinkle on your kosher salt. Toss everything together to coat.

Roast in the oven for 40-45 minutes. Enjoy!
