Labor Day Menu

September 5th, 2010 at 08:32 pm

After looking at the grocery ads, I wonder if I'm missing something. According to the ads, I should be buying lots of picnic/cookout foods for the weekend. I realize that many families do have a cookout so that is to be expected.

Sometimes I feel guilty that I don't go with the norm. On a holiday weekend, I often fix things that I have time to fix instead of a typical menu. I did pull out a couple of steaks to defrost in the fridge. I probably won't be fixing them on the grill. I think I may sear the sides, then put them in the oven to finish with a little butter on top. I hate to admit this, but doing the charcoal grill for two little steaks often seems hardly worth the effort. Maybe if we had a bunch of folks it would seem worth it, but running in and out of the house seems to be a lot of labor.

I think we will have baked potatoes (I'm already using the oven) and possibly a vegetable casserole as well as sliced tomatoes.

Not fancy, but a treat -- we don't do steaks very often.

What is on your Labor Day Menu?

    Yesterday, we had a long drive and decided to go through drive through for tacos. We pulled into a small city park to eat them and watched a single fellow kicking his half dozen soccer balls around. I told DH I felt sorry for the guy practicing all alone. Then when someone's barbecue aroma came wafting from across the street, I felt sorry for us eating fast food....Today we have homemade chicken soup, as we are having an enlivening break in the heat. No grilling here. Eh, DH is out at a bike race and no doubt will have a salsiccia.

    We are very low key people. We don't go to parades or athletic events. We don't buy into the advertising hoopla for the most pasrt. I do watch ads for stuff on sale that I actually use and try to stock up and use coupons. We will be eating gluten free here tomorrow. I am in the process of mixing up gluten free bread. (I have to let some almond milk warm up before pouring in the yeast.) So, assuming the bread turns out looking like bread tonight, I will probably make gluten free hot cereal for my breakfast tomorrow and egg sandwiches for dh's. For lunch, I will make dh tuna fish sandwiches and warm up some of my soup for myself.

    We were going to have steaks. However, my brother called and invited himself and my nephew for dinner. @@ Although, my brother only has my nephew every other weekend and we haven't seen my nephew in about a month and haven't seen my brother in over 2 months. Soooooo ..... we're going to have hamburgers, potato salad, corn on the cob and jello.

    We had some steaks last week, so this Monday we'll be meeting some friends and maybe having Indian food. Tonight we had some pasta (I'll post a recipe - it was very yummy) and hamburgers made indoors on the George Foreman grill.

    Here's to swimming against the school. Its probably a bit cheaper (not greatly) but decidely more restful when one does things differently than every one else. These days, the norm is nuts anyway. Big Grin

    What is this nonsense from some poster called 476235614? This doesn't make any sense.
