Labor Day turned out to be a day of labor for me.
Since we were hosting the fantasy football draft, of course we had to feed the drafters.
My uninspired menu consisted of:
3 – cheese macaroni and cheese
barbequed baked beans
broccoli slaw oh so good and NO mayo
3 kinds of mini-cheesecakes (strawberry, cherry and blueberry) – which I forgot to put out until too late so now I’m saddled with 20+ wee cheesecakes
various other nibbly things.
I can say with confidence that everyone left with full bellies and so far, no reports of food-poisoning.
Regarding the draft itself, my husband pulled the #1 out of the hat and got to be the first to make a pick.
Much to everyone’s surprise he chose Steven Jackson, a running back for the St. Louis Rams as his first round pick.
When asked why he didn’t pick the heavily favored LaDainian Tomlinson his explanation was two-fold: LT has a new coach and has a hard, 14-2 schedule. We’ll see if he is right as the season unfolds!!
In other, husband related news, he spent his 40th birthday very quietly. He did some much needed landscaping around the house and we went to Cracker Barrel for lunch – I had a gift card.
Sunday, his friends Jay and Flounder (fraternity pledge name) took him out to celebrate. My dearly beloved husband left with $200 in his pocket. He returned with approximately $3 in his pocket. The girls at the “Bada Bing”? Their G-strings were approximately $197 heavier! Although the drinks weren't cheap either.
