For most folks, Labor Day weekend is last time for a big BBQ bash. The kids are heading back to school (or are already there) and those half-day Fridays have all run out. Cherish summer's final days and seasonal flavors with this versatile spread. Our menu features veggie kabobs to start, a spicy grilled chicken (or grilled zucchini for the meat-wary) and a fruit sundae to round things out.

We didn't forget the drinks, either. Serve Blueberry Lime Margaritas for the adults and Blueberry Lemonade for the kids. If your friends aren't blueberry fans, mix up a lighter, homemade batch of fresh iced tea instead.
