it’s been a nice weekend so far. EP and I left my apartment last night to have dinner near his house. storms were looming, but there wasn’t any getting around them. we lucked out. no scary storms, just a lot of rain. we decided to go to the lake house [weird but adorable movie, yes – but this is a restaurant in franklinville]. we sat near a great window so we got some sunlight and a good view when the winds blew across the lake.
we shared bruschetta first. I request it with mozzarella at a lot of restaurants, and they always come up with something different. this one is by far the best. they melt mozzarella all over the crusty garlic bread and then we get a pile of tomatoes for on top.
they also have a great spinach salad – with apples, hard-boiled egg, cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, blue cheese, and candied walnuts. it comes with an awesome creamy dressing, I think it’s apple-cucumber something. I tried to refuse it the first time because I don’t like fruity vinaigrettes, but it is awesome.
this morning, we went to breakfast at our favorite diner around here. I ordered a “low-carb” breakfast… and of course ordered it with a side of carbs. ;-) I don’t quite know how the kitchen confused feta cheese for cottage cheese, but it was great with my sliced tomatoes.
they make homemade raisin toast, and cover it in butter, and I almost cry every time, it is so good.
I am a girl who likes her breakfast. the rest of the day has basically just been me and lucy, enjoying EP’s cable and reading magazines.
so sad that the weekend’s almost over. but we should get to see some fireworks tonight!!! it was postponed from yesterday. I love fireworks.
