Make the feeling of summer last by getting together with friends, but this time, skip serving the usual burgers and dogs! Whether it's a big Labor Day Blowout or a night with the family, try something different with these fun and easy recipes suggested by fellow SheSpeaks members.

How are you making the most of your summer's end? Tell us for the chance to win a $50 Visa card to buy supplies for your next celebration!

Main Course

Try one of these festive dinners, where you can make the base in advance and then leave it to your guests to add their favorite toppings!

Chicken Tacos: Shred rotisserie chicken and put in skillet with some green enchilada sauce and taco seasoning until warm. Heat some tortillas and a can of refried beans while the chicken is heating and then chop whatever veggies. Dinner on the table in about 15 minutes! (For a bigger crowd, you can also offer chopped meat, fish and/or roasted veggies.) - makysmama

Meatball Subs: Ingredients: frozen turkey meatballs, mozzarella cheese, hoagie/sub rolls, spaghetti sauce, chopped veggies, cheese. Directions: In a small kettle, heat spaghetti sauce. Add frozen meatballs to heat. Add warmed spaghetti sauce to each roll and add meatballs. Let your guests top with their choice of cheese and veggies. Yummy and super easy. - Philly_Girl

Chicken Sliders: Check out this how-to video showing a delicious summer meal and entertaining tips using Rubbermaid BRILLIANCE. Video by TabithaBlue, sponsored by Rubbermaid.

Sides

Don't stress about sides when you are entertaining. Try one of these options that are easy to throw together, but sure to please any guest.

Caprese Salad: An easy summer side is sliced tomatoes layered with basil and mozzerella, drizzled with a tasty balsalmic. - bwappman

Oven Roasted Veggies: Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Chop butternut squash, onion, brussel sprouts, and whole cloves of garlic tossed with olive oil, kosher salt, and black pepper. Place parchment paper on a cookie sheet and spread veggies evenly so they're not crowded. Roast for 40 minutes, turning veggies after 20 minutes for an even cook. - tweetibird

Drinks & Dessert

Drink Fruit Bar: Many people have fruit with dessert. But you can put a special twist on your drinks table by having a bowl of cut up fruit, like oranges, lemons, strawberries or raspberries to drop into drinks. This works great with ice water, champagne, wine, or even hard alcohol like vodka.

Ice Cream Sandwiches: Nothing says summer more than ice cream. But scooping different flavors can get tedious. Instead, serve piles of ice cream sandwiches. The classic could make any child, or adult, smile, but if you want to get fancier, they are easy to make in advance with ice cream and your favorite cookie. You can even add sprinkes or mini-chocolate chips to the sides.

I am taking as many days for myself as I can just relaxing at home. If I could I would spend time at the lake but it is to far away and I burn in 5 minutes because of how fair I am.
