Because of Jason’s work schedule, we very rarely get to spend the entire day together. It normally only happens when he takes a weekend day off and that’s usually because we’re going somewhere or we have some sort of plans. We don’t really ever have a day to just bum around together very often. Mondays are his normal day off so we actually had the whole day yesterday to spend with one another.
We decided to go to brunch in the morning at Murphy’s. Neither one of us had been there before but it’s actually where Murphy the dog’s name came from. When we were thinking about getting a dog, we were literally driving around calling out names of places and streets to see if any of them were a good fit for a dog name. Murphy stuck.
I had the Eggs San Francisco with no hollandaise sauce.
Even though we heard great things, neither one of us were too impressed by this restaurant. I’m not very into Southern-style food, which is what this was, Jason realized he didn’t like poached eggs which is what he ordered and to top it off, our server kind of sucked.
Dinner, however, was much better! Because Memorial Day is somehow synonymous with barbecueing, we fired up the grill.
On the menu were Black Bean Burgers from Daily Garnish, veggie kabobs with mushroom, onion, red pepper, cherry tomato and zucchini and grilled corn. Our eyes were a bit bigger than our stomachs and we were too full to eat the corn.
(There are three burgers because dividing the recipe in half was easier than dividing it into thirds!)
All washed down with a cold beer that I’ve had in my fridge for over a month!
I try to be mature about it on the blog and not constantly whine, but it’s really hard to only have rare days that you can spend with your husband. I try to tell myself that it makes us cherish them more.
