On Sunday, after a mass that was almost a concert (and certainly more musically amazing than many concerts I have been too), we went to Elizabeth’s for a gigantic brunch (well, it was already around 2pm, but it was still brunch)
“Old Fashioned Callas”
I still don’t know what this was, but it was good, and besides, nothing can be bad that shares a name with Maria Callas. I suppose I could google it, but that would be less fun. It was something like deep-fried oatmeal with powdered sugar.
Now for the real food.
Shrimp and Grits.
The shrimp was amazing. I have never had shrimp that fresh before. Apparently, despite it being Sunday, it was the first day of the the shrimp season, so the shrimp was definitely never frozen. It makes a difference.
The duck waffle was the most amazingly brilliant thing I have ever eaten. Not necessarily the best thing, although it was really tasty, but genius in that I would never have put it together, or even contemplated it. It was a cornbread waffle with roast duck, sweet potatoes, and pepper jelly. It was an amazing combination. If you ever get a chance, try this, but split it with someone. It is huge.
