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 .
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 .
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 .
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. :-).
