 HAPPY LABOR DAY TO ALL THE WORKERS


Karen & Ron wish all a Happy Labor Day to each and everyone that works or has worked over their lifetimes.

This long weekend is to celebrate the workers and laborers that have built our countries over the years.

And let's not forget those workers that have built our RV's so we can enjoy this lifestyle.

We did a little research about the history of labor day in Canada as well as the United States.

We hope you enjoy.

It's Labor Day ....Celebrate

The information on Labor Day was kindly shared with us by timeanddate.com

Traditionally, Labour Day was an occasion to campaign for and celebrate workers' rights during parades and picnics organized by trade unions. These still play a role in Labour Day for some Canadians, but many people see the first Monday in September as an opportunity to take a late summer trip, perhaps to their country cottage, or enjoy the company of family or friends at picnics, fairs, festivals and fireworks displays.....READ MORE

And that is how Labor Day started in Canada.

Labor Day is on the first Monday of September every year. It was originally organized to celebrate various labor unions' strengths of and contributions to the United States' economy.....READ MORE

 RECIPE OF THE MONTH

 Lobster Appetizer For Two

Ingredients

2 lobster tails
1/4 cup Garlic butter either home made ( see bottom) or store bought
Seasoned pepper to taste
1/2 cup of Mozzarella or Swiss or white chedder
1 loaf of Rosemary Focaccia bread

Special Equipment 

Mushroom cap dishes ( you can get these usually at a dollar store or kitchen store) they are round and have 6 holes. 

Directions

If lobster tails are frozen thaw out in the fridge overnight. 
Take a pair of kitchen shears and cut down the back of the tail ( where the feet are)Squeeze together until you get the 
meat out in 1 piece. Clean out the vein by making a slit in the top of the lobster.
Rinse lobster and place on a paper towel to dry. 
Place your butter in the microwave for 30 seconds or until melted. Once the butter is melted spoon into dish spreading
each hole with same amount of butter. 
Take the lobster tails and cut down the middle and then into 6 equal pieces. Place 1 piece per hole in the dish where the 
butter is in. Place dishes on a baking sheet. 
Move oven rack down to 7-9 inches and get ready to broil on high the lobster poached in butter. ( I leave my door open 
as to watch it very carefully ) until it reaches 145c or is firm and white in color. Approx 4-7 minutes. 
Take out of oven, ad the cheese and put back under the broiler till cheese has melted 1 minute or less.
Set on plates as the dish is boiling hot, add a small fork and a slice of lemon. 
Serve with rosemary focaccia bread
