Weekend Snippets {vol. 13}

10.10.2011

Happy Monday!  Did y'all have a good weekend?  We basically ate the weekend away.  It was awesome!  I made tomato basil soup for dinner Friday (I'll post the recipe tomorrow) and some grown-up grilled cheese.  The sandwich was basically goat cheese, asparagus, and roasted red peppers on grilled sourdough.  So yummy!  Then we had a pumpkin pancake breakfast not once, but twice.  Saturday and Sunday!  And, of course, I forgot to take a photo on Saturday.  No big deal.  I'll just take one Sunday, right?  Well I got about halfway through yesterday's breakfast before I remembered so this is the best I could do.  Don't worry, though.  I'm sure we'll be having those for breakfast again soon.  If you live near a Trader Joe's, I highly recommend the pumpkin pancake mix!


We caught a double feature Saturday night.  Moneyball and 50/50.  You guys.  I cried so many times during 50/50.  It was really good and very funny, but oh so heart wrenching.  Even The Boyfriend said, "I think I got a little choked up during that movie."  Moneyball was pretty good, too.  It took a while for me to get into it but I was totally there in the end.  And I ate a whole box of Sour Patch Kids for dinner.


Sunday had four highlights: more pumpkin pancakes, left over tomato soup, editing photos, and Real Housewives of New Jersey marathon.  Thank god the Cowboys had a bye week.  How could I ever choose between Jason Witten and Teresa Giudice??
What about you?  Did you have a great weekend?
