My passions for holiday week-ends

On this week's Top Sites Tuesday, BlogDumps asks us: What is Your Favorite Thing About Holiday Weekends? I suppose that most family-oriented folks like myself would typically answer "more time with the family" (instead of at work). But I have to be honest...ever since I can remember, it's the abundance of food that I've always looked forward to on holiday week-ends. And if you're invited to celebrate at other people's homes, then it's free food! Haha! That's even better! Yes, I love food!

That's me waving at the camera. Can you tell I love being around food?

As I was saying... let's take this past week-end. It was Labor Day Week-end in the U.S. and a nice long week-end for many of us. For once, my family and I got to enjoy two days in a row of outdoor grilling and company. On Sunday, my husband's friend had a housewarming/Labor Day celebration at his home. So we all went over to his house, enjoyed some grilled burgers and hot dogs, macaroni salad, chips-n-salsa, and a lot of finger foods to keep us busy (busy eating!) while we hung out with everyone there the whole afternoon.

No, no, that wasn't all I had. Actually that's just a picture my son took while he was playing around with my camera. LOL!

Then came Monday, Labor Day Holiday. No work, no school! It rained where I live but that didn't stop us from having my two sisters and their families, as well as my mom and stepdad from coming over to my house and enjoying an afternoon of (more) grilled foods. There was plenty of other food as well. While the boys hung out in the family room discussing various anime movies, the rest of us ate our food while watching the Dido Live DVD that I received for my birthday earlier this year. (She's a very pleasant performer to watch, by the way. If you ever feel stressed out, her music is quite calming).

Anyway, I'm going to put in a music CD to listen to while I grab some celery sticks to munch on before I head off to bed. Thinking about food made me hungry again. Why does Wolfbernz always think up topics that make me think of food?
