- It is around Labor Day that your garden starts to produce its last veggies. Use them up in everything from sides to salsas and more!
- Not everyone likes to dip their burgers and dogs in ketchup. Stock up on a variety of barbecue sauces, mustards and more. If you’re in a pinch, then ask some of your guests to bring the condiments.
- Ask in advance if there are any vegetarians coming to the party. You can possible grill some veggies for them, while the burgers are also cooking. Also, it’s always smart to have a small pasta dish for those who would rather pass on barbecue fare.
