Excuses

14 Jun

Things have been a little hectic chez Granny Cart since returning from Colorado and I’ve spent very little time in the kitchen.

It’s frustrating… This is the very best time of year for the Greenmarket and I’ve already let an entire day’s haul go bad in the refrigerator through neglect.

So, what I’m trying to say is, I have no recipe, no witty post for you today, but I’ll make up for it with, what I think is, a very pretty picture.

The Rocket Returns

If you don’t know who that little man in the circle is, that’s okay, we can still be friends.

The boy’s mother had told us months ago that she’d like to come visit and go see a Yankees game, so we bought some tickets. It just so happened to turn out that the tickets were for the return of Roger Clemens to the Stadium.

I’m not a huge Clemens fan. I remain of two minds as to whether he’s an asset or not, but I can tell you for sure that it was the best game I’ve ever been to. So fun, so loud, such a good time. Exactly what a baseball game should be. Oh, and the hotdog was delicious.

If it had just been the Boy and I returning from a game, we probably would have cooked up some steaks and relaxed with a bottle of wine, but instead we took his mom out to dinner.

And then the next day I was going to cook when I discovered the veggie massacre in my “crisper” drawer.

Ah, how life gets in the way. Instead of Smoked Pork Loin Smothered in Roasted Rhubarb Compote and Baby Carrots, we had a pie from Singas.

So, I hope you’ll forgive me and stick around. I know a recipe site is kinda dull when there are no recipes, but I promise I’ll do my best this weekend, that is if Life doesn’t get in the way again.
