Yet another weekend that flew by in a whirl. Albeit, this particular one was in a SUGAR whirl!
I started off the drizzly Saturday morning at my first trip to the Collingswood farmer's market this year!
And the first order of business, OF COURSE, was to get some goodies for breakfastJ We started with some fantastic fresh squeezed orange juice from Tortilla Press....
And even though I KNEWWWWW there was plenty of sugar & chocolate in my future, I just was DYING for a blondie bar from Great Harvest...
As good as I remember themJ Complete with carmely, buttery edges of deliciousnessJ I even tried a half a slice of honey wheat bread my friend had bought and I thought it was one of the tastiest breads ever. Perfectly light and chewy. Love Great Harvest!
And even though there wasn't TOO many fruits & vegetables for sale just yet, early May is PRIME strawberry session and they were plentiful and as far as the eye can seeJI made sure 2 bushels came home with me, along with some broccoli, red leaf lettuce, fresh basil, thin asparagus and some "Pine Barrens" Jersey honey....
Not a bad haul for early in the season. Can't wait till the corn & peaches start rollin in!
So OK...now were gonna fast forward to Saturday night, because really...it was just so good that I can't keep from talking about it any longer. And our great night revolved around a GREAT occasion: Our niece, Isabela's, 12th birthday!J
And what better way to celebrate the big 1-2, then with a trip to the Max Brenner's "Chocolate by the Bald man" on Walnut Street in Philadelphia!
And I was very happy with my choice: The steak panini topped with caramelized onions, spinach, roasted tomatoes, red pepper ailoi and mmmmm...asiago CHEESE CRISPS!
Note that the dessert menu was WAY larger than the food menuJ hahahahhahahahahaha...We each picked a dessert that we all shared and everything went around the table
several times. Sharing is caring, right?
But yeah...our 'sugar fest' continued into Sunday morning, when we decided that Kristen's "No yeast/No Rise Cinnamon Rolls" were going to be our morning project...
We whipped these together from scatch in UNDER AN HOUR and they were just PERFECT!
And I can't even say the 'sugar-fest' ended there, as there was still an Oreo Blizzard birthday cake at my in-law's in the afternoon. OY! So let's just say I am SUGARED OUT!!!!!!!!!!!! Today starts an 'excess sugar ban' for...well, as long as I can hold out. hahahahahahahhaha And in the spirit of 'getting back on track,' here were my workouts from last week:
