Hurrah, Labor Day. The day that celebrates…wait, what is this holiday about again? Oh, right, the achievement of the American worker, and the labor movement.

In practice, Labor Day recognizes the hard work of we countrymen, it mourns the end of summer, and it gives you an excuse to stuff as many burgers into your mouth as humanly possible.

It’s a day to eat the summeriest of Summer foods before the season of love and sweat and fun comes to a sad, sad close. Here’s exactly what you should be eating on this most bittersweet of days.

1. Burgers: This one is a no-brainer. What is a BBQ without a burger? It’s also symbolic of the relaxing vibe of taking a day off work, because you eat it with your hands…or whatever.

2. Corn-on-the-cob: What could be more American than good old fashioned corn on the cob, dripping in butter. Sprinkle that natural sweet earth candy with a little bit of salt and you’re on your way to a mouthful of deliciousness.

3. Ice Cream: Who knows when the Autumn chill is going to kick in and leave you craving pies instead of ice cream cones? Better take advantage of the heat now, and of the perfect dessert meant to be enjoyed in it!
