It’s time to plan your Labour Day BBQ

August 22, 2019

Have you seen all of those memes about how quickly summer passes? They make us laugh because it’s so true…winter feels like forever, spring happens in normal speed and then in the blink of an eye, it’s fall. How does summer go by in an instant?

It’s because summer is awesome, and time flies when you’re having fun. In just over a week, we’ll all be getting ready for Labour Day weekend – the unofficial goodbye to summer (and if you’re a parent, the official start of the school year). It’s the perfect weekend to throw a BBQ and savour these last few days of August. As always, we have some ideas to make your backyard feast the best one on the block.

Labour Day is coming up soon but truly, every summer weekend is worth celebrating. There’s no reason you can’t plan something fun with friends this weekend or host a family dinner.
