I hope everyone had a nice Mother's Day and spent time with their mommies! I know I did. :) It really is remarkable how much mothers do! I know I'm always amazed! Here are my eats from this weekend...
Yesterday I had my usual lunch at Qi Asian Eatery. It's really convenient living so close to this place! lol
Afterwards I stopped by Baked By Melissa (their new Union Square location, which happens to be right down the block from Qi!). I just HAD to try their new pancake flavor (that I found out about through my friend, Missy's blog). Plus, I was in luck because they had a few special Mother's Day flavors as well! :)
Cupcakes from left to right: cinnamon, cookie dough, chocolate chip pancake, peanut butter cup, red velvet cake, and a special edition Mother's Day one (chocolate with vanilla frosting). I really liked the new pancake one!
For dinner last night I had Mom's eggplant parmesan. :)
And dessert was a cheesecake blondie that I got from Whole Foods the other day...
This morning I made Mom breakfast... cinnamon rolls!
For lunch I had a Trader Joe's spinach and mushroom quiche...
Notice one of Mom's Mother's Day presents in the pic. The ladybug timer! We needed a new one and I found it one day at Pearl River Mart (one of my favorite stores :).
For dinner we tried an Italian restaurant down the block from us called Gene's. It's on West 11th St. off 6th Ave. in Greenwich Village. It was supposed to be good, being that it was there since 1919! I got the penne alla vodka.
Unfortunately, much like my Mom's dish, I found it bland and almost "watered down." Not very good. Oh well!
And let us not forget that I am too, a mother. A pet mother. :) Peanut was reluctant to take his "Mommy and Me" picture today. lol
But he was a "ham" for the camera later! I LOVE this pic of him. He's actually smiling!! :)
I hope everyone had a nice weekend! :)
