Need an easy Dish to pass for Labor Day?

Are you getting together with family or friends for Labor Day and need an easy dish to make to bring? There are so many easy dishes to make in just a short time that are very frugal.

My Pasta Salad:
* 2 boxes of Rainbow Pasta Salad
* 1-1/2 bottles of Italian Salad Dressing
* 1/4 lb of hard salami or 1 box of pepperoni
* 1 bag of frozen stir fry veggies

Make Pasta as directed, put the frozen veggies in the bottom of the strainer, then drain pasta. Place in a big bowl, cut the Salami into bite size pieces while pasta is cooking. Mix Salami in the bowl with pasta and veggies. Pour in 1 1/2 bottles of dressing. Mix all together and place in the fridge for at least 2 hours before serving.

Peach Cobbler (or whatever flavor you choose)

You can actually make this with any canned fruit. It’s really easy and tastes so good. We love to top it with ice cream when we serve it. I will give you the recipe and you can choose the type of fruit you would like to use.

1 large can of Canned peaches or peaches you have canned.
2 tablespoons of flour

In a 9 X13 pan dump in the canned peaches (with the juices) Then add the flour to the peaches and mix till the lumps are dissolved.

3/4 c. flour
3/4 c. oatmeal (raw), regular or quick-cooking
3/4 c. brown sugar, packed
2 tsp. cinnamon (or more, according to taste)
1/2 to 3/4 c. butter, melted

Mix all the ingredients together. Then put on top of the peach filling.

Bake for about 1 hour at 350 degrees, uncovered. You will see the filling start to bubble. The topping will turn a light brown.

Sweet & Sour Meatballs

32 Meatballs (Homemade already cooked or store bought)
1-32oz Jar of Grape Jelly
1-32oz bottle of Ketchup
1 can of drained pineapple chunks
1/4 cup of pepsi or Coke (pop)

Mix the Grape Jelly, Ketchup and the pepsi or coke together in a crockpot. Then add the meatballs to the mixture and the pineapple. Stir and put on low for about 3-4 hours then serve. If when you taste the sauce it’s to sour add a little more grape jelly if it’s to sweet add a little more ketchup.

NOTE: This recipe sounds gross from the ingredients but it’s soooooooo good! You can add a little green pepper if you would like as well.
