We are looking forward to these delish dinner ideas for the Labor Day holiday weekend coming up for us.  It will be so nice to have some time off of work, enjoy relaxing with friends (or enjoy our kids’ extra-curricular activities and sporting events – right?), and dish up some terrific meals.

Today we present 18 delectable dinner ideas for your weekend (or any time, really).  We have separated them into categories based on what type of cooking you would like to do (grilling, using the crockpot, or all-in-one-pan).  So, whether you’re feeding a huge crew or just a few, check out these great dinner ideas. (Just click on the recipe title or photo for the detailed printable recipe).
