Labor Day Southern Menu. Meatless Monday Style!

Happy Labor Day! And since it's a Meatless Monday, why not celebrate your Labor Day with a vegan feast. And instead of the traditional veggie burgers and fries style meal, I'm turning up the southern charm with a southern-style feast. My favorite country-style recipes are all here: sweet potato biscuits, cole slaw, potato salad, country-fried seitan, white gravy and more. Dessert options include a caramel apple pie or easy no-bake peanut butter bars. All vegan. So lay out a blue gingham tablecloth, set a whit daisy bouquet on the table and embrace the end-of-summer heat for a totally southern Labor Day. This countrified menu is calling you!..
