How was everyone's weekend. Mine was perfectly lazy at the beach house. Spent the days just sitting in my favorite rocking chair with my favorite mug alternating between a pumpkin ale and coffee. Sunday, I spent hours just laying on the beach wearing Steven's denim shirt (not a bathing suit; this is the Jersey Shore in October, people!). It was a perfect fall day; the perfect temperature for just watching the clouds, picking up sea shells, and drawing in the sand with my toes. :)
The one time I left the beach house was to attend my obligatory Sunday morning brunch at James Beard Award winning Mustache Bills (won an American Classics award in 2009). (Watch Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives at Mustache Bills.) I cannot leave the shore without having a rueben. Look how deliciously grilled that toast is. I have scrapes in my mouth because it was so buttery and crisp. Can you tell from this last picture that I'm part of the clean plate club? Look at all that evidence that I like to soak and scrape up every last bit of juice and crumbs.
