Hi there! Happy Monday! I hope you had a wonderful weekend. What did you do this weekend? Anything fun? I had a good weekend but as always it went by way too quick. I’m looking forward to claiming my free medium hot coffee from Dunkin Donuts today! All thanks to the Eagles win yesterday afternoon!! I haven’t been able to get the free coffee because the Eagles only won one time since this promotion has been going on. For some reason, I forget why I didn’t get coffee that day. I’m trying to run ahead of schedule today so I can stop on my way to work to pick up my free coffee. It’s the little things in life that make me happy.
So let’s recap the weekend! On Friday, Mike and I were both in the mood for pizza. That is all we kept talking about for the past few days. I knew that I didn’t want to go to a usual pizza place. I wanted to try something new and different. So I searched Yelp for reviews of some local pizzerias and I came across one in New Jersey that got great reviews and looked like they had a great selection of food. So we went there for dinner!
We started off sharing a Caprese Salad.
For our meal, we ordered the Margarita pizza. We added mushrooms to the entire pizza and then put pepperoni only on half. I don’t eat pepperoni so that is why it was only on half of the pizza.
This pizzeria only has pizza. They don’t have pasta or any sides. They have an appetizer and salad menu. The pizza was SO good. I loved how thin it was and the crust was cooked perfectly. The entire pizza was fantastic!! I want to go back and try some of the other unique pizzas that they have. I love supporting local businesses like that. It makes me appreciate the experience that much more.
After dinner, we went to Bed, Bath and Beyond and Target and then we called it a night. It was so muggy outside all I wanted to do was get into air conditioning and relax.
On Saturday, the temperature was MUCH worse! It was SO incredibly hot and very muggy. I hate weather like that! It’s October. It should be fall!! Tonight we are supposed to get a ton of rain so it should be moving the temperatures into colder temperatures which I am very excited about! During the afternoon, I didn’t really do much. I went to a few stores.
Then I picked up Melissa and we went to pick apples. Unfortunately, where we decided to pick apples, they barely had any on the trees!! We were disappointed. We still picked some and they actually taste pretty good. We are looking forward to going to our favorite orchard though and hopefully finding a better selection of apples to choose from.
After picking apples we browsed some shops and then went to PF Changs for dinner! We started off with their new salad on the menu.
The food was really good at PF Changs. I was pleased with what I ordered. I had even better company. We spent a while talking and then we went to a few more stores to browse and see if there was anything decent. When we were done we went back to Melissa’s house and had some coffee while relaxing. It was the perfect evening with my best friend.
On Sunday, Mike and I woke up super early and went to breakfast at iHop all thanks to a coupon we won on Twitter! I love that! After breakfast, we did our usual shopping trips. I watched some of the Eagles game with Mike and then I took a nap. I woke up just in time to see them win.
We decided to make chicken apple sausage for dinner. I got this package after a great couponing deal!
This apple chicken sausage was by far the BEST tasting that I’ve ever had! It had a nice light apple flavor and had a maple syrup flavor that was so comforting with it. The apple and syrup flavors went so well together. I was impressed and found myself loving it. I would definitely buy this brand again, I think even if it wasn’t on sale because it was that good! I love when a purchase surprises you like that.
What is your favorite type of apple? Have you ever had chicken apple sausage?
