I'm taking today off to spend the day with Markie on her birthday. We're having a big party on Saturday, so today is just lazy, quiet around the house kind of day. It's funny how rarely we seem to get to do that in our busy lives. The normal thing is to DO something, and it's gotten to the point that just relaxing at home is a treat.
I took advantage of the morning and made brunch. We were out of milk so I walked up to New Seasons and while I was there I checked the fish case and found fresh trout. So, here's what I made:
Pan fried trout (I dreged it lightly in flour and cornmeal with a little salt and pepper and fried it in good old fashioned butter), red potatoes (steamed first then fried in a little oil to brown them up) poached eggs and to drink a couple of lattes (loving that espresso machine) and, of course, a bottle of Veuve Clicuot.
Don't know why we don't do this every day…
