I hope you are busy enjoying the long Labor Day weekend!
Just popping in with some scenes for the weekend so far 🙂
It’s always a pleasure dining at my friend Lisa’s house because she is a guaranteed good food time, especially since she is a vegetarian which means her barbeques will always involve lots of meatless dishes for us.
Must pin Lisa down for her cauliflower recipe. Oh my goodness, it was crazy good. Something about a lightened up recipe involving a small amount of breadcrumbs and parmesan cheese. I will get it, don’t worry.
Lisa’s little girl turned three on Saturday. I feel like I was just watching her when she was a newborn and it seems like yesterday I wrote about her first birthday party!
Of course I used her birthday as an opportunity to buy girly things like stickers. I love stickers.
Whipped cream frosted cakes covered in cookie crumbs are almost as good as chocolate frosted cakes. Almost.
You may notice an above plate of almost finished chocolate chip cookies. I have been on a baking frenzy and showed these chocolate chip cookies to you yesterday.
Big and chewy, made with whole wheat flour and two kinds of chocolate chips.
I am known for my variety of chocolate chip cookies but if you want my opinion, the best chocolate chip cookies in the world might very well be from Max Brenner, where we were actually Saturday night.
Max Brenner’s chocolate chip cookies are my favorite. After Saturday night’s first bite, I decided that it may surpass the Tollhouse chocolate chip cookies from Disney World (I usually considered them tied for top of my cookie list).
We also ordered the Chocolate Mess Party For two to go along with the chocolate chip cookie.
It’s hard to tell from the picture but it’s a round cake pan with a chocolate cake of some sort baked on the bottom topped with lots of whipped cream, some vanilla ice cream, chocolate bits, toffee sauce plus strawberries and bananas floating around in their too.
This dessert combination definitely hit the insatiable spot after Saturday’s long run!
The weather has been gorgeous this weekend (no humidity!) which made walking around Port Jefferson yesterday extra nice.
They say it’s supposed to heat up again today which I guess makes me happy that I won’t be running the Long Beach 5 Mile Labor Day Race this morning as I have the past two years. Recaps here and here!
I don’t know why but this race sort of kind of slipped my mind/crept up on me out of nowhere. Logistically it really didn’t work for me and I wasn’t interested enough in running it to make it work for me.
So instead of heading down to Long Beach early this morning, maybe I will be nice and make my son day-before school-starts pancakes for breakfast, or if I know him, he will want to go back to Town Bagel for the pancakes they had when we were there for bagels on Saturday.
Now, are they serving blueberry pancakes AND m&m pancakes, or, are they blueberry m&m pancakes all in one bite? Good question, we will find out!Labor Day Weekend Stuff #maxbrenner #weekend #laborday #vegetarian #chocolatechipcookies… Click To Tweet
Best cookie ever?
