Labor Day Leftovers

Soon I will tell you about the AWESOME 80’s party on Saturday night where we celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary. Right now, I am still too tired and overwhelmed from all the celebrating. But I will share with you what I had for breakfast this morning made from party leftovers. One of the desserts created by the wonderful caterer for the event, CulinaryEye Catering, was Meyer Lemon Shortcakes with Mixed Berries and Spiced Chantilly Cream. We’ve been nibbling on the party leftovers for the rest of the holiday weekend with our family guests and this dessert gave me an idea for breakfast.

I heated the leftover shortcake, which was very much like a biscuit, topped it with a helping of plain Greek yogurt and the leftover berry mixture. Along with a cup of strong coffee it made a great way to start the day.

Now that the houseguests have departed and the house is quiet, we can return to our normal routine. I already miss the cooing and baby noises (even the occasional shrieking) provided by my tiny grandson Isaac. It was his first trip to our house. Time stands still when I am with him and nothing else matters. I am used to my routine, but I hope he comes back soon to rearrange my routine again.


  1. Sounds like a wonderful weekend! Happy Anniversary Judy! Those shortcakes look wonderful. Can't wait to hear about the party!
