A nice mixture of occasions is Labor Day, which gives Americans a day off to enjoy the start of the NFL (that’s not how it originally came about, but it’s a happy coincidence), and Welsh Rarebit Day, which gives the rest of us the excuse to have cheese on toast with a splash of Lea and Perrins for every meal.
I hope all of our US readers enjoyed a day filled with barbecues, afternoon naps and plenty of football… FOOTBALL… FOOOOOOOTBAAAAALLLLLLL!! Meanwhile, I had a three-course dinner of Welsh Rarebit, each with a slightly different spin: the first was traditional, the second had baked beans on the side (not on top, as that would just be cheesy beans on toast), and the last was with ice cream. Needless to say, that one’s put me off the dish for a while.
