Yesterday, Scott and I went to the Minnesota State Fair.
It was the perfect day to go. . . middle of the week and sprinkling rain on and off really kept the crowds down so there was actually room to walk!
so excited for the fair. . .
First fair food: Roasted corn on the cob. . .
always the best corn ever!
Up next: sunfish fillets with yummy sauce in a boat!
And the sweet stuff. . .
Scott always has to get Sweet Martha’s cookies.
And he always has to get the huge bucket. . . where they pile it super high and you have to eat a ton before you can even put the lid on!
And our ‘new’ fair food this year: pig licker –> chocolate covered bacon sprinkled with sea salt
It was interesting. . . it tasted like bacon with chocolate on it! Both Scott and I said we didn’t think we would get it again, but it was a fun thing to try!
Also eaten but no pictures: Nitrogen frozen vanilla ice cream – so rich and creamy and Scott got a vanilla milk shake from the University of Minnesota Moo booth.
Laura and her boyfriend got to the fair just before we had to leave, so I was able to snag a few mini doughnuts from her!
And fun self portraits on the bus on the way back to the car!
Always a good time at the great MN get-together!
Lazy Sunday afternoon.
Took Scott and Abby for a 4 mile run.
Decided cooking was too much work last night.
So, this happened.
M&M dairy queen blizzard.
And yeah – it was good!
Perfect end to our weekend!
And now it is Monday again. . .
Super excited for tomorrow – Scott took the day off work and we are going to the great MN get-together –> the State Fair!!!
Hope you had a great end to your weekend and a good start to your week. . . do you ever eat ice cream for dinner???
Last night was a perfect Saturday night in my house: Papa John’s pineapple pizza and Season 5 of Dexter!
And some peppermint bon bon ice cream for dessert!
This morning, all I could think about was the scone I had for breakfast yesterday. . . but I wasn’t going to get dressed and drive all the way across town. . .
So, the next best thing: make something up!
Thankfully, we had some bisquick in the pantry. So, I made some biscuits. I made a mesh between the standard biscuit recipe on the box and the recipe for the ‘shortcake’ biscuits on the box. Basically, I just added a few tablespoons of sugar to the regular biscuit dough. I also sprinkled sugar on top too.
Hit the spot. . . topped with a smear of strawberry jam. Perfectly sweet, doughy, and delicious!
Abby wasn’t sure if she wanted to play ball or have some biscuit. . .
Hope you are having a great Sunday!
It’s been a lazy Saturday morning here at our house.
Abby and I went on a coffee run to Panera this morning.
My first caramel skim latte in 2 weeks!
A scone sounded really good too, so a quick stop by Dunn Brothers – just down the street from Panera – to get a delicious mango scone.
Except that it wasn’t mango. . . I think it was mandarin orange??? Actually I have no idea what flavor it was, but it was soft on the inside, crunchy on the outside. The filling in the middle – whatever it was- was sweet and fruity. Perfect Saturday morning breakfast.
Scott and Abby had some play time. . .
well more play for Scott and pouting for Abby. ..
Other than a run later this afternoon, not sure what else is planned for today. . . which is really nice for an end of the summer weekend!
Also, just finished watching the Packers v Colts pre-season game from last night – awesome finish Packers! Go Pack Go! Can’t wait for the regular season.
Hope you are having a good weekend! What are you up to???
Filed under Abby, Breakfast
Happy Friday!!! Aren’t you so excited that it is almost the weekend??? I am! Scott and I have nothing planned, which I am super excited about.
Since next weekend is already Labor Day. . . I thought this week would be a good one to reflect on my summer favorites!
1. Weekends at the Lake
3. Long days with lots of sunshine
4. Corn on the cob
5. Fresh summer fruit: watermelon, strawberries, peaches, nectarines
What are some of your summer favorites?
Happy Thursday. . . one day closer to Friday, right?
This morning started out with waffles and syrup x 2.
Abby was very interested in breakfast. . .
Lunch was leftover hamburger with Colby cheese (and lots of ketchup) and bbq potato chips
And some of this. . .
This afternoon, Abby and I went to Petco to pick up some more puppy treats for her. Well, I guess I should say that I went to Petco this afternoon. I tried to take Abby in, but she wasn’t going anywhere near the store. It might smell like the place we take her to be groomed, which I know she hates. . . so she hung out in the car and left the treat picking to me.
Look at these cute teddy bear treats I got!
Scott and Abby are now outside planting a tree in our backyard and I am watching Jeopardy Teen tournament – which I love cause I actually know some of the answers!
Hope you had a great day! See ya tomorrow for 5 Things Friday.
Still not feeling back to my 100% self after last week.
So, I have been taking it easy.
And that means lots of TV and couch time.
Thankfully my husband has all seasons of 24.
How did I never see this show??? Jack Bauer is awesome!
It sucks you in right away and keeps going thru the whole season.
I am about halfway through season 2 right now!
Have you ever seen 24?
