Are you sick of seeing pumpkin yet? Because guess what? I made another pumpkin recipe…Sorry, I’m not sorry.
When I got home from work on Friday night all I wanted was breakfast. I made myself a dippy egg, pepper jack cheese and “bacon” sandwich thin. I wasn’t satisfied so I offered to make smoothies for Adam and I while we watched a movie. Then I begged he go buy whipped cream for said smoothies.
Nothing like a piece of pumpkin pie in liquid form (with 3/4 less the calories!)

Last night we had date night
We try not to repeat restaurants because there are SO many to choose from. We went to a place called Court Street in Hoboken.
I really don’t like giving restaurants bad reviews because I’m a big fan of local businesses but honestly – this place has some work to do. Sangria was wine and water (no fruit – best part!), my stuffed shrimp was all breading, carrots were just boiled, baked potato had no seasoning and our dessert was actually bitter. Robert Irvine needs to rescue them ASAP!
It’s football Sunday so you know where to find us!
