So, everyone must have a plan by now. Hope everyone has a great day with family and friends. Not only do we not have plans for the day, it's raining!!! sigh...

After I get everything packaged and frozen from my trip to the city yesterday, I'll be playing with appies today! I'm so excited! There are two dishes I've been wanting to make for quite a while, and another that, thanks to a VERY generous friend, I get to sample for the very first time!

First, I'm going to bake up some tortilla chips to have with Bill & Jane's Hatch Chile Dip! After the yummy stew, I'm really looking forward to this one!

Then, I'm going to try the Buffalo Chicken Wonton Cups with Celery & Blue Cheese from Fresh and Fabulous.

And finally, I've wanted to play with puff pastry for the longest time, so I'm FINALLY going to try the Tomato Tarts with Goat Cheese and Basil from the August issue.

I've got our admission and train tickets to go down to Del Mar for the last of that track's horse racing for the season so that means a corned beef sandwich from The Carving Station.

However no one seems terribly interested in going so I have to decide here if I want to cancel the train tickets and just eat the $30 admission price. I think the weather is making everyone feel unmotivated - cloudy and 62.

If we stay home we'll probably have leftover lasagna.

We're having deep dish pizza and salad. Not very Labor Day-y but yummy!

Oh how I wish Jean! Zenyatta. She is slated to run at Hollywood Park on Oct. 2 and then again at The Breeder's Cup in Kentucky on Nov. 5th or 6th then she will retire and hopefully have some babies!

Party today, so far we have smoked pulled pork, 3 kinds of sauces, red bliss potato salad, Hard Rock Cafe coleslaw, (thank you again, Barbara!) baked beans, and bourbon pound cake. Family members are bringing appys and fruit.

Trixxee - You should go!

No plans here. Rainy and cold, kids sick, cleaning house, and laundry. No idea yet what is for dinner.

Jean, I hope you are feeling better. I am not sure if we are on round two or three of illnesses here. The kids just keep passing it around. Symptoms change just a little bit each time. Ended up putting Stephanie on Antibiotics and she seems to be doing well, Chris is on them too but not getting over it as quickly - now Nicky is showing more symptoms...

We need to get healthy by Wednesday!!

OK, it's settled. We're all goig whether they like it or not.
