Labor Day Eats

Cranberry Orange Scones by the Barefoot Contessa. I made these for brunch before we headed to the beach. The scones are flaky, buttery and delicious. I've made them several times and they are always a hit. Especially with a little lemon curd (which you can get at Trader Joes).

Fruit Salad. I will miss summery strawberries but I'm excited for pumpkin.

Chocolate Cake. It's a bakery cake our friends brought over for after dinner. I may have had 2 slices- YUM!

Noodle Kugel. Yes, that's what it is called. LOL I saw the Barefoot Contessa make it and knew I had to try it. Unfortunately, it was not a crowd pleaser. Something about raisins, cinnamon and pasta all together was not the best combo. Oh well. At least I tried.

The grocery store was out of ham. Well, except for the kind in the tin can which EWWWW, I refuse to buy that. So, I settled for pork shoulder. Can you say salty? I will definitely do the water bath, rinse all the salt off before you cook it, next time.

My Honey made ham and bean soup with the leftovers. It was delicious. It was so fun sharing the kitchen with him. Now we have soup for lunch for the week. Oh and some cookies, which I'll be sharing in another post.

How was your Labor Day?

Isn't a 3-Day weekend a wonderful thing?


  1. those scones look fabulous!

    seriously I have been so lazy today! I haven't done anything!

  2. I was at Trader Joe's today...Of course, I'm there nearly every darn day...and I almost picked up lemon curd. Your scones look fantastic. I love making mine round as well.
