Like the aftermath of most weekends, Monday morning finds me a with a backlog of RSS feeds in need of reading. There’s also my usual batch of links shared by friends and coworkers with some variation of “I thought you’d appreciate this” message. I’m very grateful, since without my spies everywhere, I might miss something important!
I thought a few items needed sharing…
- If you haven’t seen the 2013 Inaugural Luncheon menu, you should check it out here: http://www.inaugural.senate.gov/luncheon/event/inaugural-luncheon-2013. The site includes the menu and the recipes!
- NPR ran a wonderful story (text and audio are available) about The Round Robin Bar in Washington, DC, and its long-time bartender, who has mixed drinks for presidents and non-presidents alike: http://www.npr.org/2013/01/20/169838008/distilling-presidential-history-into-44-cocktails. (I have a feeling this place may be on my schedule during my next trip to DC.)
- The Daily Meal ran a story/slideshow this weekend on 11 recipes that we used to see in restaurants that are fading from menus these days: http://www.thedailymeal.com/11-disappearing-menu-items. The good news is, if you’re inspired to make any of these, we probably have a recipe for you in the collection!
