Its my sons birthday today so on top of the Labor day festivities we have the b-day festivities. I will just be doing some simple grilling, burgers, dogs, churriso, and some other things probably.

I made a jicima salad the other day that came out really good, so I am going to make that again. It was julienne of jicima, fennel, granny smith apples, red onion, and some manderine oranges with lime juice, salt and pepper. It was really refreshing and light, but full of flavor.

burgers and hot dogs on the grill...burgers will be Kadesma's italian style recipe, hot dogs will be topped with leftover pizza sauce/chevon; and marinated green bean salad and grilled potato fries..

Nothing special. I have some chicken cutlets leftover from today's dinner so if I get to the store for mozzarella cheese, I'll make chicken parmesan.

I'm in the "nothing special" category. I'd more or less planned our weekend around going to a street dance last night. It was a disaster. The band was terrible. This is to be a family event, and in previous years, it was C&W, Rockabilly, Oldies, Salsa, or something similar. This year it was a band that was what I'd call noise, the children in the crowd couldn't get near the area for dancing (it was so loud that no one could get near it), extra seating (usually bales of hay) was not provided. So now, don't know how I'm going to finish the weekend. I was counting on this community event to meet and greet and enjoy my neighbors. If I'd known it was going to be a bust, I'd have invited a few folk over.

I found a recipe on this website, Worlds Greatest Hamburgers offers: reviews, recipes, history, rating charts of hamburgers from all over the world.

that we're going to try. The Jalapeno Bacon Cheeseburgers only ours won't have the bacon, we don't care for bacon on burgers.

The weather here has been crappy since very early morning. They are calling for showers tomorrow, too. Tonight, it's hot dogs, salad... not sure about french fries yet. Tomorrow, it might be a crock pot meal.

A little kindness goes a long way.
