Irish Hangovers, Pumpkin Spice Lattes, and Bonfires

Posted Sep 18 2010 9:18pm

I love Saturdays.  This Saturday brought crisp fall weather, plenty of relaxation, family, and good food.

I started off my morning, still sleepy, with some Maple Berry Banana Oatmeal.

After which, I did absolutely nothing of substance for a good 2 hours after.  Idleness = bliss :)

Josh and I did run some errands in the early afternoon, during which I drank my first Pumpkin Spice Latte of the season.  Lately, I have avoided coffee/espresso-based drinks, because they don’t always agree with my stomach.  And since I haven’t had them for awhile, I felt I had lost my taste for them.  However, the Pumpkin Spice Latte was delicious.  Full of sugar, but delicious!

When I came home, I ate a late lunch of a hummus, tomato, and cheese sandwich with sliced tomato on the side.

We also shared a late birthday cupcake!  I bought this one from Josh and I’s favorite bakery: Cocoa & Fig.  It’s name?  The Irish Hangover.

It was a chocolate cupcake made with Guiness beer, with chocolate ganache in the middle.  The frosting was Bailey’s buttercream.  Alcohol in cupcakes?  Sign me up! (Just kidding!!  I like my sweets and alcohol in moderation, of course.)

Later, we stopped by my parents’ house for dinner and a late birthday celebration for Joshua.  We snacked on some chips and veggies.

Josh and I then headed down to the fire.  Josh was happy to be there!

I found this angel in my mother’s flowerbed.  Enchanting, no?

Enjoying the fire…

Dinner involved a hamburger patty, cucumber and tomato salad, homemade pickles (from my Grandma) and baked beans.

More cake!

Good thing my long run is in the morning, after all the sweets I had today!  Hoping to accomplish 9 miles in the morning!
