I took the weekend off from my computer. I didn’t even check my email on my phone. I just finished cleaning out my inbox. It seriously took 2.5 hours. More coffee please…
We also took the weekend off from Paleo – but not bacon… Friday night Big Dude and I ate almost a whole deep dish pizza from Costco while catching up on The Americans and The Following. Have you seen any of those things?? Let me just say, it was worth it. And if you’re not watching either of those shows, I highly recommend both. I even got my Dad into them while my parents were staying with us last time. And I promise, I don’t just love The Following because Kevin Bacon is in it. 😉
Speaking of bacon… Have you seen this?? I’m really hoping it’s not an April Fools Joke.
If you see it, please let me know! If it’s a joke, don’t tell me today.
My neighbor and new BFF Nicole is the manager of Klinger’s Bakery, and sometimes she brings us treats. Saturday, she brought us a Blueberry Braid Coffee Cake. I might have eaten 75% of it. It was soooo good. Between that and the workout I got at Petra Cliffs, I was out for the count in a serious carb crash from like 4-7 Saturday night. I had to lie down in bed. Not sure that one was a smart choice. I finally got up and went to the store to get the rest of the ingredients for Brunch on Sunday around 8. Came home with chicken wings for dinner. I had no energy left to cook real food.
Sunday Brunch was amazing. We had eggs, bacon, sausage, fruit salad, baked apple french toast and Bacon Coffee Cake with Bacon Caramel Glaze, adapted from this recipe and when I say adapted, I mean I screwed up the recipe somewhere and had to improvise… I forgot to take a pic of the initial meal, but here’s what I had for leftovers at lunch time.
After that we took a trip to Lowe’s to check out patio paver, fire pits and furniture. It sparked our fancy for a fire.
We raided the construction dumpster a few doors down for the scrap wood and roasted hot dogs and s’mores for dinner. Best Easter Ever.
