Oh, say, can you tell how much fun we had looking through your #PatrioticPets submissions on Instagram? Thanks to all the Instagrammers who participated by posting photos of their adorably decked-out pets in anticipation of Labor Day. Click through to see which red, white, and blue critters we couldn't get enough of -- and be sure to follow @MarthaStewart on Instagram for your own chance to be featured!
Enliven your backyard recipe repertoire by swapping the standbys -- burgers, steaks, and chicken -- for something from the sea. Whether you go for fish, shrimp skewers, lobster or more, there's something here for every taste.
The high heat of a grill means that pounded breasts (paillards) cook in a flash and don't have time to dry out. You can buy thin cutlets, which are pricier, or flatten the chicken yourself, as we do here. (It's up to you whether to save time or money!)
