Labor Day

Happy Labor Day.

The official Labor Day barbecue chez Hall was yesterday.  Neighbors and friends old and new converged to have a lovely dinner.

From scratch, your humble chef prepared mesquite-smoked ribs and hickory-smoked chicken and sausage.  Much house preparation was done, too.

The wonderful neighbors from days past brought up the usual delicious excess: brussels sprouts, zucchini, salad, bourbon.  A wonderful new neighbor from the current good old days brought a fabulous cappuccino cake.  At the end, there was an abundance.  It was a wonderful time.

The “old” neighbors stayed over and had sourdough pancakes and locally-made sausage for breakfast before heading back to the “old homestead.”

Tomorrow is school, and a new academic season.  I think I’m ready!  Today is strictly leftovers and a few final quiet summer hours.
