Since Outstanding in the Field was in the Hamptons, Ryan decided to make a weekend out of it and rented a house and invited friends to come along. That was the best decision ever! Much more relaxing to enjoy the last few bits at Outstanding and driving just a few minutes to a lovely home than drive all the way back to Manhattan on a full stomach. He also wanted to spend the weekend barbequing, eating outdoors, and enjoying the company of friends.
The weekend menu went a little like this:
morning-Leek, carrot, pepper, and onion frittata with fruit
lunch-Steak, salmon, roasted potatoes, and grilled brocolli
dinner-bbq chicken, salmon, coleslaw, beet salad, collard greens, grilled peppers, mashed potatoes, and french apple cake for dessert
brunch-took leftovers and made salmon, egg, and veggie scramble; steak; salmon salad, and fruit
dinner-at the Clam bar in Montauk
