Rain, champagne and crab cakes…

I slept in a bit on Mother’s Day morning, a dreary rainy morning conducive to a smidgen of extra pampering.  When I did venture into the kitchen, Mr. Smith was quick with a yummy, warm croissant to go with my delicious morning cappuccino. He had also saved my Sunday New York Times from drowning in the weekend downpour.  A fine way to start the day.

We had reservations for later in the day at one our favorite waterfront restaurants on Cayuga Lake, but thanks to another wet day in upstate New York, we chose to cancel and dine at home.  One of my favorite dinners that Mr. Smith prepares is Martha Stewart’s Maryland Crab Cakes.  We decided on a menu of crab cakes, green beans and broiled tomatoes.  

After a trip to the bookstore (for fun) and the grocery store (for crab), we spent a rare lowkey afternoon at home.  I caught up on Madame Secretary and Mr. Smith spent some time getting a jump start on his upcoming busy work week.

Around 6:00 p.m. we rendezvous in the kitchen, popped a little bubbly and worked on dinner together.  In just over an hour we were seated at our cozy dining room table, enjoying our feast.  It was delicious.

“One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.” Virginia Woolf

I did receive a gift set of my current favorite scent from Mr. Smith for Mother’s Day.  This led us through an interesting discussion regarding perfume versus cologne and everything in between.  Please check back on Sunday when I’ll muse on (ramble on) about the scent of a woman.

C’est la vie.
