Be jealous – Destin, Florida, is beautiful! I have been enjoying my time here and look forward to a great Labor Day weekend. Are you grilling? I prepared an entire Labor Day menu for GrillingOutdoorRecipes.com if you’re looking for ideas to celebrate the unofficial end of summer. By the way, the Gulf shrimp is amazing here so my blackened shrimp with cajun garlic butter turned out very nicely.
These are my favorite posts from all over the Interwebs from this week. I hope you enjoy them, too!
