Come on, who doesn't like to sit around and pick corn out of their teeth on Labor Day?
Okay admittedly I don't do that but I always picture everyone else doing that.
In honor of your lounging around today, I am going to do a quick, food post of some of my not so healthy and healthy favorites that are picnic friendly.
