Labor Day Eats- Grill Summer Goodness!
We usually have a bit of a large meal on Labor Day- usually a grill and charcoal are involved! I like company that day, and this year it was my youngest son Craig, with girlfriend in tow.. She had to work today, so dinner was early- noonish. I cooked a bunch for Saturday, so I wasn't looking to recreate the wheel, just have a good simple meal, done well!
Menu was T-bone steaks, seasoned with Canadian Steak Seasoning, and rubbed with Worcestershire sauce, charcoaled to medium as shown. Next, fresh corn on the cob, steamed until done- but crisp! I bought those dinner rolls, and paid more than normal, only because they were fresh, soft, and fragrant... Dessert was lemon bars. a little retro- but welcome to the Midwest! All got gone, and now have the rest of the day to relax..
The weather today was beautiful, if a bit warm... The grocery store was not busy when I went(early!), and that is nice. The checkout people and baggers were sullen, as they had to work..I even tried to cheer them up- to no avail!
An article in our newspaper- Headline read: "Women make up half the workforce in depressed Michigan"... A couple of reasons being, that's how many guys are out of work, and employers take advantage of women, because they settle for less pay than a guy! Working women, know your worth! Happy Labor Day!
