Dan and I were uber-productive both Friday night and almost all day Saturday this past weekend, so when we found ourselves on Saturday night with "nothing to do," we jumped for joy!
A lazy Sunday was such a pleasant surprise!
First thing we did? We SLEPT IN. Now, I know this might not seem like a huge deal, but I can't begin to remember the last time I've slept past 8 am . . . EVER. Know what time I woke up yesterday morning?
First order of business? Coffee. Second? Pancakes!
I made whole-wheat lemon-ricotta pancakes, and they turned out beautifully fluffy, lemony-delicious, and were heavenly topped with tons of fresh fruit and a drizzle of pure maple syrup.
After cleaning up the kitchen, we headed over to Theo Wirth park (which is located in Minneapolis!) for a nice, long walk. I feel very lucky to have this beautiful of a park within biking distance of my apartment!
After our walk, we were both hungry, so Dan suggested we get ice cream. Yum!
I ordered the "Hot Grin" sundae from Sebastian Joe's, which was a scoop of vanilla ice cream with hot fudge, hot caramel, salted mixed nuts, and whipped cream. OH BABY! I love the salty-sweet combination, but this one was almost too much for me . . . Dan had to help me with the last couple of bites.
When we got home, we lounged around on the couch and watched a movie. I don't think I've watched a movie in a month!
After the movie, it was time for dinner:
I made Herbed Ricotta Tart, with sides of roasted asparagus and salad. This was a delicious, EASY recipe! Wahoo! I did make a few modifications, (I used homemade pizza dough instead of the crud in a can, I didn't precook the green onions, etc.,) but this will definitely be a repeat at our house!
Hope you enjoyed your weekend, too!
