Does Labor Day mark the end of Summer for you? It usually does for me and my family. As kids my family, cousins, grandparents, aunts and uncles spent our Summer days at a campground starting the day we got off of the school bus until the Monday of Labor Day weekend. Fast forward 20 years and their are now 5 (and a half, one more due this Winter) great grand kids spending our Summer days and Labor Day weekend at the same campground. We gather food, drinks and campfire chairs to talk and just be together. This campground is special to me in so many ways but mostly because my parents met there at the age of 15, my sister and I grew up there and now my own kids get to grow up there.
We have themed weekends for our Sunday Suppers on holiday weekends! This year we are having Mai Tai’s and Chinese food! So when I saw that this weeks theme, “No Labor” recipes I just had to make these Spicy Thai Noodles for #SundaySupper. I love quick and easy dishes that you can whip up and bring to any party or celebration. Make sure you scroll down for more inspiration there are tons being shared today.
