Around the Internet Kitchen: Long Weekend

by Nick

This is a long weekend for most of the people in the U.S. due to the Labor Day holiday. If you haven’t read the history of why labor day exists, it’s actually pretty interesting why we don’t work on Labor Day. Check out the Wikipedia entry for it.

Anyway, I’ll be mostly relaxing this weekend and doing lots of cooking. But on Saturday I’m taking a little day trip to the place pictured on the right! It’s a brewery! I’m gonna bring my camera so hopefully I can get some good pics.

I’m going out of town for a good chunk of time next week for work so I wanted to make some freezable dishes so Betsy doesn’t starve to death while I’m gone (I’m exaggerating of course (but not really)). She came up with the idea to make frozen mini pizzas and I think that’s a pretty fantastic idea.

You guys can pick the toppings though!

Plus a few links!

Reverse Root Beer Float – Well this is just clever and fun. Take a root beer float. Flip it on it’s head with root beer ice cream and cream soda! Love it. (@ The Frozen Fix)

Pickled Serrano Peppers – I have a pickling problem right now. And the problem is that I just can’t seem to get around to pickling anything even though pickled things tend to be my favorite foods. Anyway, these look delicious. (@ Pinch My Salt)

Picnic Breakfast Burritos – These are just beautiful photos. The kind of photos that make you hungry for breakfast burritos. Or breakfast tacos. Both are options here. (@ Sprouted Kitchen)

The Green Gumbo – Yet another thing that I’ve never tried my hand at! It’s amazing how much you can cook and still have so much left to cook. This is my kind of dish though: spicy, salty, and colorful. Love it. (@ No Recipes)

Fresh Three Bean Salad – For something a little lighter that would be great for a nice Labor Day picnic, check out this simple and colorful bean salad. Healthy and delicious. (@ Former Chef)

Have a good weekend everyone!
