I love Sundays, but love successful Sundays even more. To me, a successful Sunday starts with early morning mass, breakfast, and a day filled with friends and good food! Today was all of that. After mass, I went to breakfast with Glen. Glen is up here in Charlotte working on a construction project while his wife is down in Florida. She called and wanted me to get him out of the apartment, so I thought breakfast would be a good start! I’ve known Glenn for a while now. I met him while I was living in Valdosta GA.
I took him to the Broken Egg Cafe. It’s really close to me and has great coffee! I ordered the Skinny Omelet again, but this time and them put cheddar on it instead of the goat cheese. I wasn’t feeling the goat cheese last time. The omelet is on the healthy menu. It comes with fruit and an english muffin.
Around noon, I met up with Sealy to run some errands. We headed to Waxhaw to stop and grab some local eggs. I had forgotten all about them at the farmers market yesterday.
While we were there, we decided to split an eclair. I mean…how do you say no to that?
We split that eclair right down the middle…
It was filled with a cream cheese based eclair filling. I liked it, but it was incredibly rich! I’m also not a huge fan of cream cheese fillings, but it didn’t stop me from scarfing it down.
After leaving the local market (Provisions) we walked around the antique shop next door. I love going in there and looking at everything. It never gets old. After running our errands, I went for a walk with the pups!
Sunday’s are meant for relaxing. What relaxes me? Baking! So, I made some pies for the friends. If you go to the search box on the top of my blog and type in apple pie, you’ll find my recipe!
Sealy and I headed over to some friends house for dinner. It was nice watching all the men take over and cook. They made grilled chicken, asparagus, guacamole, spinach salad, and brown rice. I was impressed 😉
After dinner, we all sat around eating pie, drinking coffee, and watching the Yankee’s game. Coffee and dessert go together like peanut butter and jelly.
And that is why I LOVE successful Sundays.
