|The best ice cream EVER! No really.|
As if that wasn't enough saturated fat for the weekend, I had my sights set on some beignets. I had been trying to convince Jeff for the past week that this would be a good idea, but I just couldn't get him on board. You see, I have a sweet tooth and he has something called self-restraint. So while he was gone on Saturday on a fishing trip, I took the opportunity to rope my mom into splitting an order with me.
|How can something so delicious be so wrong?|
We rounded out the weekend by taking Jeff's Dad and brother to a much hyped burger place Uptown called Company Burger, followed by some Pinkberry (duh). I think the guys liked their burgers because they ended up ordering another one to split. Oh, and I can't forget breakfast at Surrey's on Sunday morning. Thanks to their Costa Rican breakfast (brown rice, black beans, scrambled eggs, pico, avocado, plaintain chips, and cheese! all piled in a bowl) that place is quickly climbing to my top breakfast spot in the city. All in all, it was a delicious, gluttonous weekend (as all New Orleans weekends should be). To top it off, the weather was downright glorious! More weekends like this, please.
