For some reason, Memorial Day weekend feels early this year. It’s the unofficial opening act of summer, yet it’s rarely summer-like weather in late May. And this weekend looks like a mixed bag of sun and rain. So, I’m going to try to do a picnic later this afternoon, then a movie on Sunday.
This cheeseboard, from the blog Half Baked Harvest, is still my inspiration—I love the grilled fruit and pickled balsamic strawberries—always a hit. After reading a review in the The New York Times of ‘That Summer’, the prequel to the Maysles 1975 documentary ‘Grey Gardens’, I put it on my rainy day list. Directed by Goran Hugo Olsson, this documentary “sheds further light on the Beales with footage shot before the making of ‘Grey Gardens’.” Sounds like a must-see to me.
