lazy Sunday

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?

10:00!!!! WOW!

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!

Your Sunday sounds kind of like mine, except my walk was at Lake Harriet and my ice cream was no where close to how delicious yours looks!

You weren't kidding when you said you slept in! 10:00!?!? I don't think I have ever slept that late before in my life.

Sounds like a near perfect Sunday :-)
