Pizza & Sweets

January 16, 2011

Up until 5:00 p.m. last night, we didn’t have any plans, but our impromptu, semi-date night turned out to be a good one! 🙂 Plus, how can you go wrong with pizza and sweet treats!?!?

We started with a little homemade pizza action.

(Don’t mind our 80s inspired cupboards and oven. I really despise it and can’t wait to live in a place that’s more updated!)

Hawaiian (deli turkey meat + pineapple) on one half, veggie on the other (zucchini, tomatoes, yellow pepper).

Then my sweet tooth was needing to be fed, so we headed to the best place in town to get some sweet treats: Sugarspoon!!

We couldn’t believe our eyes when we saw they were offering 50% off everything (except whole pies) in celebration of their 3rd anniversary!!

They were even giving mini cupcakes and free coffee away!! What a pleasant surprise!

Hot chocolate for my hot date!

Craig’s dessert: Pear Frangipane Tart

Almond pear tart served warm with red wine gastrique

Incredibly delicious!

Don’t be afraid; I’m just really excited.

I ordered a Strawberry Shortcake Sundae from the kid’s menu:

Vanilla ice cream, cake, strawberry sauce, whipped cream and sprinkles

So simple, yet ice cream and whipped topping that was out of this world–and just the right amount for me.

Today’s activities have been filled with church, grocery shopping, and cleaning. Tonight we are chilling and taking it easy since we both don’t have to work tomorrow!! Super excited to sleep in, have a little breakfast before running, and then spending time with Craig and friends! Should be a good one!


A recap of my workouts and mileage (running) from this last week:

Monday – 5 miles + 45 minutes of weight lifting

Tuesday – 4 miles

Wednesday – 7 miles + 30 minutes elliptical

Thursday – 6 miles

Friday – 4 miles

Saturday – 10 miles

Sunday – off


Oh, and by the way, it was -10* here today!!! SO COLD!! I don’t know how I ever survived Minnesota winters where the windchill caused it to be -20, -30, and even colder!!!

    1. Silverspoon looks like a great dessert cafe! I order desserts off the kid’s menu all the time!

    1. That sundae looks sooo good!

      And I love homemade pizza! Especially with pineapple (I’m a freak for pineapple!)
