A lovely long weekend

Hi! Hope you had an enjoyable weekend. I took off on Friday, so I enjoyed a nice long weekend.

Friday was my pumpkin day. In the morning, I walked to Dunkin’ Donuts and brought home a pumpkin donut and a pumpkin iced latte. Not the healthiest breakfast, but I did walk over a 1/2 mile.

Breakfast of Champions

Dave finished up the backyard, installing a new light. Check out the end result, it looks so good! We looked at the before pictures, its a little embarrassing we didn’t do this sooner.

Saturday night, we went to Philly for an evening out in the new hipster happenin’ neighborhood of North Liberties.

Sunday was running 10 miles and football. We also had some new pumpkin beer.

Southern Tier - Pumking

If you get a chance, be sure to try the Southern Tier Brewing Company Pumking beer. It’s delicious! There is a nice pumpkin taste which is balanced out with a good mixture of spices.

We’ve had nothing but rain all day today. We took a break from running and did some strength training at the gym this evening. For dinner, I made a delicious meal from a recipe I found in a Costco ad cookbook. I made Chicken, Spinach, and Tomatoes on top of pearled pesto couscous with a balsamic sauce.

Yummy!

The couscous looks like peas in this picture, it was my first time trying pearled couscous. It was very good!

Off to bed!
