the earth turns

summer spins away

on Labor Day


Labor Day weekend is set-aside to honor You and Me – The People – for the technical and ordinary and tedious and amazing work we accomplish in the U.S.A. and the world.

Labor Day Holiday also softens the harsh thoughts of “no-vacation-time until___,” and gives permission to rest in the shade of a cottonwood tree and linger in the closing moments of summer.  And to invite young and old, football fans and not  – to enjoy great food in a simple setting with low-lift prep. and easy clean-up.

We are grilling Husker Chops (in Nebraska meaning – 1 inch thick bone-in pork chop) to send playful summer on her way and transition into Hurly-Burly Autumn.

See the menu I selected to celebrate Labor Day with my friends and family.  I plan first for flavor because I relish heat, meat, and fresh flavors, then I plan for simple so I feel comfortable enjoying friends and listening and laughing and telling my stories too.

I thank  website for their original brine, grill and glaze recipe for 1 inch thick pork chops.

Spicy Beer Mustard Potato Salad

Grilled Sweet Corn (fresh from the Farmer’s Market)

Late Season Sliced Tomatoes and Onions

Baguettes of Sour Dough Bread Baked in a Brick Oven at the Back Alley Bakery (ideally)

Chunks of Farmer’s Market Melon


This menu is tried and true, and I promise that guests will rave and you will smile as they heap praise on you, the Grill Master.  The menu works for you and me because prepping and grilling this Labor Day Feast feels easy.  Twenty-four or even 48 hours before the celebration, buy the chops and place them in the brine and refrigerate.

One day prior to the celebration gather ingredients and make the potato salad recipe.

Brining the chops guarantees moist and a salty, sweet, thyme and garlic flavor in every slice.  A memorable flavor!!  Find recipes for the potato salad and for sweet corn on the grill at

Edward Espe Brown, a former Chef at Tassajara Zen Center and teacher writes, “I want people to be happy. Not the happy of getting what you imagined wanting, but the happy of kind mind, joyful mind, big mind; the happy of a day of peace, and a day of tending, of attending; the happy of being with, not being boss, of greeting, meeting, patience, warmth, generosity.”


I like thinking and believing that my das and especially Labor Day will be peaceful, and a day of tending and attending, greeting,meeting, patience, warmth and generosity.
