For having a weekend with little on the schedule, it seemed pretty jam packed again. I don’t know how that happens? As much as I love getting out and doing stuff, I am longing for a weekend where I can lay on the couch, eat popcorn and catch up on Netflix and reading …
Anyway, here’s some of the fun stuff we did this weekend. We started out with a date night for B and me. It was a belated birthday dinner! We went to Nuevo, a local Mexican restaurant and had some great food. We shared some guacamole, fried plantains, tacos al pastor AND carne asada.
After, we ended up picking up Katie, B’s sister, who was babysitting FW, some pizza in Little Italy. So of course while w were there, we stopped off at Presti’s for dessert!
Saturday, B had plans to paint, so my job was to occupy FW most of the day. So, here’s what we did.
We tok a long walk in the morning.
We even walked to the nearby lakes. I think FW enjoyed it – he didn’t sleep!
We also played and read a lot in his room. I’m getting sick so there was some playing with tissues (clean ones, of course!).
We also checked out the local library. We’d never been there and I think FW liked it a lot! He played with some of the toys and loved the fish tank.
Saturday night included some takeout pizza (with eggplant on mine, yum!) and a little relaxing, which was definitely called for.
Sunday morning started with a brunch/baby shower for Anson! She is due in about two weeks with baby #2, so Lulu and I organized a get together at Le Petit Triangle. I had some great French toast with lemon curd and berries. Their French toast is on challah and so good!
After that, we went to the West Side Market to get in some grocery shopping. It had been forever since we shopped there and it was so nice to be back!
That afternoon included some chores (including raking) and then spaghetti and meatballs at B’s parents house. Pretty much the perfect fall meal.
Questions for you:
- Did it feel like fall where you are this weekend?
- Do you like eggplant on pizza?

It was fall here in Minneapolis- finally! We had such a randomly hot September, but it cooled down in time for the Twin Cities Marathon (which I didn’t run this year, just cheered :))
Eggplant on pizza is delicious!
Hope your cold goes away quickly. Great recap!
I have never had eggplant on my pizza. That sounds like an interesting topping. I just made veggie lasagna in the crockpot the other day and I used layers of zucchini and eggplant in that instead of noodles. Very tasty!
I’ve never had eggplant on my pizza either. Sounds yummy! I have that same red plaid shirt. I wore it this weekend too! 🙂
It sounds like you had a nice, relaxing weekend! I haven’t tried eggplant on pizza before but I do think I would like it. It’s not very fall like here yet, even though the decorations are up. Thanks for linking.
