Labor Day Meals and Deals at Family Fare

1:52 PM

Labor Day is almost here, and it's one of my favorite holidays for getting together to celebrate some much-needed time off and eat with my family! We're a pretty traditional, All-American Labor Day bunch, stocking up on grilling and picnic items to nosh on all weekend long.

This week, we were invited to stop into my local Family Fare store to pick up essentials for our special meal. They have lots of sales going on this week, so it helped me stretch the budget, which is vital when feeding so many boys grilled foods!

What did we pick up? Our go-to grilling food is hot dogs, and there were so many to choose from:

There was also quite the assortment of fresh breads and buns to enjoy:

As for the main part of our festivities, we had a great time shopping for all the fixings that go on a good dog. Like the condiments... as well as the chips, sides (all from the deli) and drinks! My kids go nuts for Mexican cola, so we picked up a selection of Jarritos in different flavors to chill on ice for our big meal. (It takes forever for the kids to each pick out their flavor.) We also picked up chili for the dogs!

What a spread. It was fantastic to have easy party foods to enjoy. Less time manning the grill meant more time with the kids -- which I really needed after a busy week.

Before I tell you about the great giveaway we are doing, you need to hear this fun story about a special treat we bought at Family Fare:

We have been past this display of exotic fruits twice now, and each time, the boys ask to try something from it. We settled this trip on trying a dragon fruit. We picked what we thought would be a ripe one (we really had no clue) and took it home to try.

What did we think? Delicious. I couldn't believe how yummy it was!
