Weekend Wrap-Up; Coffees and Burgers

Hooray for low-key weekends with lots of dog snuggles!  We spent lots of time on the couch, but I did manage to pre-prepare dinner for the next few nights (go me!).

We went to a new coffee spot in Great Neck to get me a Christmallow latte.

It was only ok, not as exciting as it looked, but I had practically been having a heart attack about getting one so at least I can shut up now.

Much better was the espresso I mixed with eggnog at home.

That ‘nog is low-fat but it is damn good, super creamy.

burgers

We ate burgers for dinner and brunch on Sunday. Bareburger for a classic first.

Turkey on a bun with grilled onions, mustard, ketchup, and tons of pickles.

Plus a smokey bloody mary made with bbq sauce.

And I stole many bites of Adam’s fried extravaganza chicken and waffle plate.

The balls towards the back were banana fritters.

Dinner was homemade round 2.

So good!

The above wasn’t everything I ate this weekend, obviously, but there wasn’t much else worth mentioning. I will brag about getting dinner on the table like a boss on Saturday though.

We had a party to go to with Adam’s friends and I managed to get us fed by 6 pm versus the usual 9. And that was with a dinner-prep drink!

I made a dish from Cooking Light with some snowman pasta.

And roasted up these cool kale-brussels hybrids.

We thought they were quite tasty.

Hope everyone has a great, festive week!
