Sweet Weekend

My sister has gone home.  Boo hoo!

Some of the highlights of weekend include time spent antiquing and thrifting – she got some great deals on a few brass pieces.  She also got to spend time watching the guys play soccer and witnessing the truly competitive spirit of all my guys- including my husband!  And, of course, we had some great food.  Take out aside, my favorites included…

…my favorite everything bagels from Tal Bagels in NYC.  I can’t properly express how much I enjoy eating these bagels! My favorite part is the big flecks of sea salt!  Yum!

My guys love the beautifully packaged contents from Leonidas – this amazing Belgian chocolatier.  Just look at this…

Full disclosure – I took a few samples out of the box for the picture that did not make it back in.  Belgian chocolate is so delicious, but Leonidas chocolates leave me speechless! (Because I can’t stop eating them!)

Lastly, we enjoyed some great tarts.  I wrote last week about the pate brisee pie crust a la Martha Stewart. Here is the final result…

This one had blueberries and raspberries, but needed another tablespoon of sugar.

The apple tart was my favorite. Loved it!

Overall, a delightful and delicious weekend!
