The week before Memorial Day was a pretty long one at work, so I was actually really satisfied that it was grey and rainy here on the holiday - it made me feel better about staying inside and doing all things restful and cozy. We watched old but new-to-us episodes of Project Runway, we read, we tidied the place up, and we ate. We ate well. Better, perhaps, than we would have eaten at a barbecue. At least better than the pretend barbecue I'd conjured up in my head.
For breakfast I made omelettes inspired by a couple breakfast dishes we've had at Junior's Cafe. Eggs, sauteed leeks, goat cheese, fresh black pepper, and a drizzle of honey. Try it. Amazing.
Lunch was a little... non-lunchy. The dreary weather had me in a baking mood, so I decided to try out this cream cheese pound cake recipe that I recently bookmarked. We ate slices of it all afternoon. Not bad with a little honey drizzled on it, too. Funny how that works.
I never met a grilled meat I didn't like, but I didn't miss the typical barbecue menu one bit. There will be plenty of time for that this summer. Right, friends with yards?
