A full on blogged weekend


My goal this weekend was to blog all my food, and I actually did it! Here it all is…

Dinner last night was in Westchester with our friends Amy and Joe. We went to Longwood Gardens for a little Christmas cheer and then over to Limoncello for dinner. We had such a blast! Too bad they live in NYC and we hardly ever see them besides at weddings!

Dinner was: 2 pieces of bread (one with oil and one with tomatoes), Chicken sorrento which was chicken with artichoke hearts, olives, and tomatoes over cappelini with a piece of eggplant covered with mozzarella, and 1/2 of our order of tiramisu! I was feeling the dessert. Also had some vino!

This morning I had a pita toasted in the oven with some peanut butter and a banana. We have lovely whole wheat bread but I felt like having pita!

Then for lunch  (before picking out our wedding bands!!!!!) PB and I went to reading terminal. I had some baba ghanoush, hummus, and salad but it kind of stunk so PB bought me two cookies from one of the stations there! One sugar and one peanut butter chocolate chip. They were seriously delicious, and worth every calorie. We had such an insane blast picking out our wedding bands! It was so fun, and so easy too! We picked out mine super quickly and PBs as well. We didn’t order them yet as we want to make sure we order the right sizes but they are so perfect. As soon as we order them and have pictures I will post them!

For dinner we had our friends Robbie and Chrissy over. There is this great multi part special on HBO called The House of Saddam so that’s what we are watching right now. it is extremely interesting. For dinner we had one of my mom’s classics, breaded chicken breast and eggplant. We also had breaded zucchini and PB made some homemade pizza. And spinach salad. It was quite a feast, but PB and I often splurge on either Friday or Sunday depending on the week and like to make lots of extras for future meals. So now we can send Robbie home with lunch for tomorrow, me home with lunch for tomorrow, and PB will have lots for the next couple of days.
