Like I need an excuse to make bread....
Yay Labor Day?
So, while most of the US is out trying to BBQ in the rain, I'll be loafing about at home, probably in the rain ('cause it always rains on Labor Day). Yep, no BBQ for me. There are things I eat that can be barbecued- thick slices of eggplant are good, so are tomatoes, jacket potatoes, and corn. I'm just not.
It never really gets cold enough here *not* to barbecue, actually. A little too rainy, perhaps. Having watched people try to cook outside when it's 20 below zero with wind and snow, and ice underfoot, it totally doesn't get too cold here.
Honestly, I forgot it was Labor Day weekend until people started asking me what I was doing. It's not like weekends and holidays mean much to me- I don't get extra holiday pay and I don't *go* anywhere to work. It's like summer vacation as a kid- no idea what day it is, just knowing you get to do the same thing tomorrow. Throws the timekeeping off a bit.
Wonder if Labor Day is a good choice for grocery shopping... Beer, meat, and chips might be a little picked over, but I've got an idea what I want this week, and it looks more like potatoes and pinto beans. I think I'll be safe- so long as the stores are all open. Maybe I'll even pick up an eggplant.
Anyone doing/ done anything interesting for Labor Day? Any non-US types enjoying the end of summer/ waiting for spring (you southern hemisphere-types)? Have a favorite BBQ-type food?
