It was a fun weekend at Casa D’Alessandro. We headed to Athens (Athens, Georgia–not Athens, Greece) to go do some shopping, see a movie, and go to dinner. First stop–Sam’s club. I know I’ve blogged before about my love affair with Costco, but I also love Sam’s. This time out–in addition to our usual purchases of paper towels and fruit–we picked up some chef’s knives (’cause I’m always looking for the perfect kitchen knife), and a new Ninja (combination food processor and blender). Can’t wait to try it out! Frozen margarita, anyone?
Then we headed to the movies to see The Amazing Spiderman. I’d heard good things about the flick and we really enjoyed it. The actor who played Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) was new to me and he did a great job. The adorable Emma Stone played Gwen Stacy, who was Peter Parker’s first love. Who knew? I always thought it was Mary Jane Watson, but apparently not. There was lots of action and lots of chemistry between the leads. I’m looking forward to the next installment.
Then we went to dinner at a new-to-us restaurant called Grit–which doesn’t necessarily sound appetizing, but the food was excellent. It’s an all vetegarian place and I have to say I never knew tofu could taste so good. After dinner we went to Menchies which is a frozen yogurt place. There are about 12 flavors to choose from and dozens of toppings and it’s make your own. The Mounds flavor was amazing–chocolate coconut. YUM! I swear, if there was a Menchies closer to us I’d be in there every day. I’d for sure end up in Menchies rehab.
The rest of the weekend was spend working. I’m editing/updating one of my early, out-of-print titles, KISS THE COOK in preparation of making it available as an e-book. I have a fabulous new cover for it and I can’t wait to re-release it next month!
How did you spend your weekend? Have you seen Spiderman? Plan to? Whatever you did, I hope it was fun!
