I hope everyone had a nice weekend. The weather has stayed cooler. I've finally stopped resisting and put away my Summer clothes. I do love Autumn but it has been a really nice Summer. The weekend was very nice. I'm always sad to see it go but I guess we have to work in order to have nice weekends and pay bills and what not.


Friday after work I went to Union Square and did some veg shopping at the Farmer's Market. I purchased Heirloom tomatoes, basil and wacky shaped eggplant(Rose Bianca). Then I walked over to Whole Foods and got some dough for a Pizza Margarita I would be making. They sell really cheap whole wheat frozen pizza dough. How cheap? $1.50 total cheap! I also purchased Hummus,red pepper/feta dip and pita chips. I do love my pita chips. Their Hummus is so much better then the Seven Seas brand. But Niel says he likes my Hummus best. Blush. He did enjoy Whole Foods' red pepper and feta dip though. He says it tasted like mine. Heh heh. I met up with Niel and we went home and relaxed the rest of the evening in front of the television. We watched Stick It. It was very good.


Saturday we went to two fairs. We would have gone to a third but we were enjoying being lazy so we got a late start leaving the apartment. The first fair was an Oktoberfest at the super neat relatively new mall a few neighborhoods from us. Niel enjoyed a beer and we shared a Bratwurst. Very yummy!! Afterwards we drove to Sandspoint in Long Island to a Medieval festival. Very entertaining. There was jousting, face painting, reenactments, dancing, vendors, and just plain fun.


Sunday Niel had a scout function. One of the scouts became an Eagle Scout. He went to get some bagels, spread and to set up. Then at the ceremony Niel and other scout heads spoke about the newest eagle scout. It was nice. I took some pics but the first set was a little dark. Afterwards we went to a Mets game. His mom got four tickets. The weather was lovely, the seats were good. Unfortunately the Mets lost. We went home and watched Fox the rest of the night.


We also did our grocery shopping and cleaning. I also did some cooking, besides the pizza and the calezones I also made some pesto and froze it for future use. Pictures here.

Ahh... sounds like a nice weekend. Wasn't Stick It cute? I really did enjoy it. Hehe ... I'm shallow. ;) I'll have to try some Whole Foods pizza dough and hummus. We usually get our hummus from Sam's Club. But it's not nearly as good as the brand we got in Madison (don't remember what it was called ...) so I'd love to find a substitute. Maybe I'll go over there at lunch t'day ...

I get antsy. I don't like to sit still. I do that enough at work. I feel like I miss out. Fall is still my favorite season but summer was really nice.

I though Stick It would be a much goofier movie Jess. I liked the messages it had. About teamwork and standing up for your rights. Hope you like the Hummus at Whole Foods.

I adore summer clothes and I wear it year-round. I may not necessarily wear it out of my house (some of the pieces), but I usually don't pack summer clothes away. Hmmm...maybe I'm just lazy...

Summer clothes are much more freeing cause their lighter and less but its getting chilly here and a nice sweater and heavier pants make me feel cozy. My BIL however wears shorts all year round.
