Wow. Today has been non-stop ever since 8am this morning. :shock:
After my day at work, I had a couple errands to run on my own before meeting up with Jay at his work. This evening, we had an appointment with a kitchen designer so we can try to get the ball rolling on our kitchen remodel! :mrgreen: Even though it was just our initial meeting, I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am. (Insert “Happy Dance” here.)
The designer came up with some pretty sweet plans that will do a world of wonder for our existing space. One idea that she came up with, (which I probably would have never thought of) actually eliminates our kitchen table and includes an extended counter top to act as a table. I wasn’t quite sure about it at first, but the more I thought about it, the more I LOVE it!
Since we didn’t leave from our appointment until almost 7, Jay and I were definitely in need of some dinner, FAST. We stopped by a local place that was recommended to us called Scarborough’s. Can I just say, I’m so glad we stopped by this joint!
I ordered the Chicken Bruschetta, which was olive oil and garlic toasted bread topped with chicken, artichoke hearts,fresh red tomatoes, Romano cheese & sun-dried tomatoes.
I think I finally lost count on how many times I must have said, “Oh my god, this is SO GOOD.”
The flavor in this dish was out of this WORLD. There’s just no other was to describe it. Absolutely perfect. :-D
Despite being pretty full from dinner, I still have a delicious Pumpkin Spice cake in my fridge that needed to be worked on…so a little dessert was in order to round out the evening.
When I made the Pumpkin Spice cupcakes over the weekend, I actually did half the recipe as cupcakes, and the other half in a 9-inch round cake pan. After slicing it in two, I filled and topped it with the remainder of the Honey Cinnamon Cream Cheese frosting. I love how the cake is really only one layer, but it still seems like a double layer cake. It’s so so good. :-D
I promise, the recipe will be coming your way this weekend!
I’m off to relax for a few before heading to bed. No more late late nights for this gal!
Question for the Night:
What time do you usually go to bed during the work week?
