You may be busy gearing up for fall—packing away the bathing suit, buying fall clothes and school supplies, using the A/C less and opening the windows more—but state parks, swimming pools and campgrounds are all gearing up for the long Labor Day weekend, when families and friends take advantage of the waning hot season one last time.
Over the years, Labor Day has evolved from purely a labor union celebration into a “last fling of the summer” festival. But don’t let uninvited guests spoil your fun! Poor planning (or carelessness) can increase the risk of food-born illness; the sun and hot temperatures can create an environment for food to spoil. To help keep your end-of-the-summer fling safe and satisfying for all, check out these picnic pointers and tasty side dishes.
Picnicking at home allows the luxury of a nearby refrigerator.
Away from home festivities require more planning.
