So it's been awhile that I wrote something of substance! I can only say--I have been CRAZY BUSY at work/with work/traveling for work...you name it--just add the word "work" in there somewhere!
That said...this weekend, to celebrate the Labor Day holiday I will make sure that I have plenty of time to devote to my food blogs!
History of Labor Day:
Labor Day is when Americans celebrate....LABOR...by NOT doing any. It's an actual federal holiday--something we don't get enough of, if you ask me! Thank you President Grover Cleveland--I don't remember much else that you may have accomplished, but I remember this. Is that telling? Oh, well! It also traditionally marks the very sad end of summer. Kids go back to school, homemakers go back to bonbons after scurrying around trying to ensure their kids stay busy throughout the summer, football (American football, that is) season starts so that all the working out that guys may have partaken in can be undone with beer on Mondays…and working people? Well...working people everywhere except those poor folks in the service industry (much love to you, I remember!) get 1 day off to commemorate their countless hours of work for the year.
And, of course, the big one--if you're a traditional fashionista--it will no longer be OK for you to wear white...bridezillas notwithstanding.
Possible Labor Day Weekend Festivities:
- The Spotted Pig (I am lately obsessed with Chef April Bloomfield after reading/seeing interviews/etc.)
- Union Square Green Market
- BBQ in the backyard!
- Anything else I can think of to take advantage of this weekend!
Come back next week for the first of many updates! Thanks for your support!
