Too hot to cook here. I might pick up some KFC and see what looks good at the supermarket deli in the way of sides. The big problem is that the a/c went out in the restaurant that dh works in and a new one is on order. Meanwhile, he hit every discount, department and home building store in a 25 mile radius and they are all out of fans, so he had to take both of ours to try to make things bearable for his employees. We have a ceiling fan and ds and I spend lots of time under it.

This has got to be the strangest labor day ever! We're not cooking out nor having anyone over. It's a toss up right now between my spicy fish stew and spaghetti - it's embarrassing actually to even mention those two things on Labor Day!

Maybe I'll make you feel better, elf. We're having leftover layered smoked turkey salad from a couple of days ago. We've been lazy all weekend and ate like royalty at lunch on Saturday for our date day. Guess that was our Labor Day food event.

We were so full from Saturday's lunch we had popcorn for supper later in the evening.
