So, who else had a fantastic weekend?! I did! We had beautiful, no-jacket kind of weather and of course, weekends are destined to be great when they start like this:
Uncommon Grounds has the best bagels in Albany. And blueberry coffee with a tiny bit of vanilla syrup and soy milk is the most amazing combination ever.
Here’s another reason my weekend was great:
I got to see my adorable nephew, Nicholas. Look at him! He looks exactly like my brother! I’m not going to be an annoying aunt and make a fuss over him. Just stare at his cute face for a little while and smile. 🙂
Jeff and I headed downstate on Friday to go out to dinner for my father’s birthday.
We ordered three large pizzas at Pepe’s. I dominated the pepper & onion pie.
Pepe’s coal-fired-oven pizzas have very thin and crispy crusts. The pies are sliced erratically so some slices are huge and others are tiny. I think I had 4 randomly sized slices. All of them were perfect.
And what’s a birthday without cake?!
I had a small slice:
We didn’t end up getting back to Albany until 2 a.m.! Needless to say, I slept in on Saturday.
I started my morning off with Banana Bread Oats
I mixed a small slice of the branana bread I made on Wednesday into my oats. It was so good and it kept me full until 2:00 for lunch.
Lunch was a sunshine burger on an Arnold Sandwich thin with grapes on the side.
Jeff and I decided to explore downtown Albany since it was so nice out.
I stopped at a tea shop and got rose-lavender tea
We wandered around Washington Park…
And enjoyed a nice day out!
When we got home, I made Cooking Light Potato Latkes for dinner.
To keep this post from becoming gigantic, I’m going to leave Sunday and Monday out of the mix except to tell you that I ran three miles on Sunday and burned the crap out of a PB & Banana grilled sandwich.
I also need to conclude this post with one image:
Soooo dangerous! I’ve devoured half the box already.
What’s your favorite kind of cookie?
Have a great Tuesday!
