Happy eating...oh yeah I mean Labor Day

Hope your Labor Day is labor free! I've just been coasting through the weekend or actually eating my way through it. It all started with a Wednesday lunch at Nobuo with the darling Jaimee.

If you're a Phoenix local you must go there! I had the tofu salad and we shared the short rib steamed buns which were deee-licious! We ate them so fast there was no time to snap a picture. Oh and I can't forget dessert because it's not a girly lunch without dessert.

Friday, The Coffee Shop with Little, Mom, my brother and my sweet nephew B. Their scones are to-die. Seriously. (You can also see The Coffee Shop ladies on Cupcake Wars.)

Saturday after pilates I had to go to Essence Bakery for an almond croissant with a side of caramel macaron. Bad, bad bad.

Last night we had my parents over for dinner and my mom brought the stuff for Iceberg-Blue Cheese Salad and Creamless Creamed Corn (recipes from this month's Elle Decor)and we grilled chicken. The salad and the corn, YUM.

I haven't checked the menu for tonight I'm crossing my fingers that it includes a grilled burger, preferably with grilled onions and blue cheese. So now you know what I've been doing (stuffing my face), what's up with you?

Yum Yum Yum! That salad looks particularly delish, and it would be unusual for me not to go for the cupcakes first!

The caramel macarons are so bad but so, so good.

Oh how daughter brought us the lemon, coconut, and that beautiful pink vanilla from The Coffee Shop on Saturday. Yummy! Love your blog.
