We started off Friday at the movies. I read the book The Help last month and have been wanting to see the movie ever since. It was really good, but I feel like they left out some good parts from the book, but I guess in the interest of time they had to because the movie was already over two hours long. We were lucky enough to sit next to some older women at the theater who were either falling asleep and snoring loudly [no joke] or telling each other what would happen next.
Since the weather was gorgeous on Friday, we decided to head over to the piers after the movie.
We laid by the water and just enjoyed the gorgeous night. After that we decided to take a drive down Bedford Ave in Brooklyn where we encountered the Luke’s Lobster truck. At first we were a little taken back about the thought of eating seafood out of a truck, but something in my head clicked and I remembered hearing about it on TV and we decided to give it a shot.
We got a lobster roll and a crab roll and shared. They were both surprisingly really good, but we both agreed that the lobster roll was better. The lobster was almost sweet and the sauce on it was really good. If you live in NY, you can follow the truck on twitter and know when it is in your area.
On Saturday we woke up bright and early to go to the McCarren Park Farmer’s market.
After the cocktail hour, we were all invited upstairs to greet the bride and groom and their wedding party.
I’m telling you, in you ever have the chance to go to a Polish wedding, jump on it. We had a blast and danced our butts off big time. I think we didn’t sit down for more than a song just to get a drink. The music was great and everyone was having a really great time. Congrats again to Lukasz and Mariola!
On the way home, the rains began. Lukasz doesn’t live to far from our house, so we decided that we would walk home after the wedding. Too bad that by the time we got off the bus it was pouring and got home without a dry thread on us.
We woke up on Sunday to something that sounded like a huge explosion. Then again, judging my Facebook and Twitter, most of our neighborhood woke up to the sound. Lightening struck somewhere nearby because the whole house shook. It was a foreshadowing to what the rest of the day would be like because it poured and poured and poured some more. It was actually the rainiest day since the weather started being recorded like a 100 years ago.
Tommy and I had planned on making BBQ for dinner and we didn’t let a
little lot of rain stop us. After some difficulties with the grill not lighting correctly, we were ready to feast.
We made chicken and Italian sausage with corn, red potatoes and a kale, mushroom salad I made. We served it along a yummy garlic bread that Tommy made.
After dinner, we headed out to Ikea where Tommy and Munchkin got matching Poang chairs. Well not really matching because Tommy got his in black and the children’s version only comes in white.
This morning we woke up to even more rain and it doesn’t look like it will be going away anytime soon. Rain, rain go away little Munchkin wants to play!
What was the most exciting thing you did this weekend?
Do you frequent Farmer’s Markets?
Do you have your arc ready for the impending flood?
