4 Flavorful Recipes for a Relaxing Labor Day


Labor Day might be one of the best Mondays ever, because everyone has the day off! It gives us a reason to fire up the grill and give ourselves a pat on the back for working so hard. If you’re anything like me, holidays are all about the food. I’ve compiled a few recipes that are easy to put together and nutritious. There’s 4 things that every party needs: Drinks, food, fun and coupons!

Woman Enjoying Salad

A cool, refreshing salad is a tasty summer treat.

1. Punch:
All you need is a glass bowl. Pour in a thawed 16 oz can of lemonade concentrate, 1 liter of club soda, and orange juice to taste. Slice up a single mango into chunks and plop it in for zesty flavor. Add two trays of ice cubes and a tablespoon or two of sugar. Use these awesome K-Mart coupon codes and get 10% off your online order, or $5 off all orders $40 or more.
