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!
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)
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)
Have a good weekend everyone!
