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.
