Today was doctoring up left overs from Labor Day menus.I started at lunch with the Wheat bun hotdogs where I added Guacamole to the bun. Fresh potato salad from the Large baked potatoes was created using Hellmann's mayo and French's yellow mustard. For dinner I ressurected the Apple soda marinated Pork ribs baking them at 350 F for 20 min. in a dish with 6 oz. of carbonated soda pop. We also finished the potato salad and I opened a can of corn that I sauteed with bacon and finished with the juice from the re-heated ribs. The wife was full with only half her plate consumed, leaving no corn.
We will always remember these first Labor day Festivities. With no children. Only my parents and brother with his wife at Canyon Lake. No trips to the marina for a picnic on the water. Only to check to see how far the wild fire spread. And then finding our way back to Houston driving around fires and through dense smoke that burned our lungs. My brother's daughter does not know the condition of her apartment in Bastrop TX.They have not allowed her back in so she stays sequestered at Canyon Lake where she took refuge yesterday. My own daughter is safe along I-45 south of Conroe. And the wife and continue to monitor our area for smokeless skies. Y'All stay safe as your young'uns return to school.
