A lazy weekend of eating & watching...

Some of the things we ate this weekend...

Gnocchi
It was our first time to try it & we LOVED it! I just bought a boxed gnocchi from Kroger tossed it with mariana sauce, ricotta cheese, mushrooms, broccoli, & chicken. It was delicious! :)

 Qdoba
Our favorite place to go when we want a quick & HEALTHY meal. 

Gigi's Cupcakes
These two flavors are my favorites: Hunka Chunka Banana Love and Kentucky Bourbon Pie!

& some of the things we watched this weekend...

Hugo
Very well done. We enjoyed it!

The Lorax
Super cute!

Downton Abbey Season 2
I started the second season last night. This is SUCH an amazing show! :)

And that's about all we did this weekend...eat & watch movies/tv.
It was a lovely weekend, indeed. :)

Have a good day!
