Weekend in New Jersey

October 24, 2010 § 4 Comments

Hey everyone!  Well, it’s been about a month since I last updated my blog..oops!  When it comes to school, the blog is not a top priority!  I just returned from a wonderful weekend in New Jersey visiting Troy!  We haven’t seen each other since the wedding we went to last month, so it was so great to finally see him Smile.

I arrived around dinner time on Friday night so we headed to this great local Italian restaurant called Potbelly’s Riverside Café in Rockaway, NJ.  I got the most amazing dish – chicken topped with eggplant, topped with mozzarella cheese and sun dried tomato pesto!  Troy got a swordfish and pasta dish which was amazing as well.  So good…sorry folks, no pictures!

Saturday morning we headed out to one of our favorite places for breakfast.  Dunkin Donuts!

I had a toasted multigrain bagel with cream cheese and a toasted almond coffee.  I think toasted almond is my new favorite, sorry French vanilla!

Before I headed back to Syracuse, Troy made us a delicious breakfast of over easy eggs, maple bacon, english muffins, and coffee.  It was so warm outside that we ate on the back deck!  It’s freezing in Syracuse and I even saw snowflakes this past Friday, so I was very excited about dining outside.

We had a breakfast guest!  Oreo!


Oreo is the next door neighbor’s dog who likes to visit the boys on occasion.  I think he smelled the maple bacon and ran right over!



I caved and gave him a small piece of my maple bacon, he was so cute!


I think he liked it Winking smile.


I also baked up a batch of these delicious Halloween treats to bring to Troy and his roommates.


Double chocolate brownies topped with whipped vanilla frosting, orange sanding sugar, candy corn, and yummy pumpkins!  I also brought some apple cinnamon muffins.


It was such a wonderful weekend!

This week is looking quite busy as far as school work goes, so I’m not sure that I will get to blogging.  But, I do have some exciting things coming up so check back and see what I’m up to!  Happy Sunday Smile.

Question of the night: What’s everybody’s favorite Halloween treat/candy?

Reese’s peanut butter cups all the way!  Peanut M&M’s, Milky Ways, etc. :-).
