Labor Day is a holiday to honor workers by giving them a day off the last weekend of Summer.  For Americans, it means the end of Summer, the beginning of Football Season, and even a festive Labor Day Parade.  We all like to enjoy a menu of delicious food to serve our honored workers on their special day.  This menu is quick and easy and will allow you to enjoy your last weekend of Summer with very little effort.

Queen’s Tip:  Popcorn, a soda and some candy with a good movie is a great way to round out your end of summer fun.

Brown Sugar Filets

Brown Sugar Filets

4 to 6 Tenderloin Filets or any steak of your choice

Melt butter, brown sugar and garlic in a pan.  Stir until combined.

Place meat on grill. Cook and baste with brown sugar mixture until desired doneness.

Sour Cream Potatoes

 Sour Cream Baked Potatoes

6 large potatoes for baking. Washed

1 teaspoon salt

¼ cup butter

½ cup whole milk

Bake potatoes at 400 degrees for 60 minutes.  Cut off the top of each potato.  Scoop out the inside.  Add butter, salt pepper, milk and sour cream.  With a mixer, beat until fluffy.  Fill potato shells with filling and top with cheese.  Return to oven and bake at 375 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes or until browned.  Serves 6.

Easy Buttermilk Drop Biscuits

Preheat oven 425 degrees

Stir together Bisquick Mix and Buttermilk until sticky dough forms.  Drop by tablespoon onto greased baking sheet.   (I use Parchment paper to line baking sheet)
