Labor Day in Hawaii - Hawaiian Barbecue

Ok, so we're not actually in Hawaii, but a woman can dream! Nevertheless, we are doing our best here at our home to make the most of these last few weeks of summer!☀️ With the temperatures here in Nebraska cooling off a bit, we're spending more of our evenings dining outdoors and watching the sunset. The sunsets are stunning here on the plains!

If you're residing in pleasant weather this weekend perhaps you're partaking in the well-known activities of Labor Day - picnics, parades, and parties! I'll be preparing one of my favorite crock pot meals for our guests this weekend and I wanted to share it with all of you! Try out these delicious Hawaiian Barbecue Chicken Sandwiches! They will not disappoint!
