Yeah, I know. A flurry of excitement for one week, and then I decide to take one day off.
To quote my fourteen-year-old...whatever.
Here's the thing about the foodservice industry... your weekends are my busiest days. Your holidays are my longest days. And it's totally cool, I don't mean to bitch...because that's how it is, and that's what I signed up for.
Anyway. Mother's Day is tomorrow, and it's no shocker that I'm working. Our restaurant is serving a brunch, and since I'm the primary brunch cook, it stands to reason that I should be there. But, I'm done by three, and then I've got the rest of the evening with my kids. I have no idea what they've got up their sleeve.
My husband thinks I should not cook on Mother's Day...but honestly, I can't think of anything I'd rather do more. Especially since I saw a particularly inspiring episode of Bobby Flay's Barbeque Addiction whilst at the dentist recently. So...if I weren't working tomorrow, and I had all the proper ingredients and equipment, this is what I'd be making (then eating)...
*Note: inspired by Bobby Flay, but tweaked by me.
Smoked Adobo Brisket Tartine (instead of Tortas) with a Creamy Horseradish Spread
Roasted Tomato Marmalade
Grilled Fruit: Bananas, Peaches, Pears, etc.
