Brunch today with my husband, sister, brother, sister-in-law, 2 nieces, dad, stepmother, grandmother, uncle, and 2 cousins. We took the motorcycles up there, about 30 minutes from my place to my brothers, on RT 17 and the Parkeay. Boy, that was exillerating. Nothing like wearing your Easter clothes, sans jacket, and doing 70 in the fast lane. We all went out to bar/restaurant in Hillsdale called The Cornerstone. It looked like a cool place to hang out on a weekend. They had a big spread, complete with omelet station. I was worried they would charge me even if I didn't eat, but was happy they didn't make a big deal about it, as if lots of people come to their all-you-can-eat brunch buffet and choose not to. I was less tempted than I thought, though I think it was because the food was in another room and I was busy making balloon animals (for the first time in my life) for my beautiful neice. I brought fresh apple juice and made the waitress bring me a wine glass so I could drink from it. If I am going to drink it, I may as well do it from a goblet.
Then we came back home to grab the car and some flowers to visit my hubby's aunt, uncle and his mom. That was nice. I made myself a celery, cucumber, parsley, and green apple juice. I bought some Chia seeds and added 2 tablespoons. This superfood was a favorite of the Aztecs long before they gained fame attached to a pet clay sheep. They form into a gel that is a great fiber supplement, source of Omega 3s, and amino acids. They are really amazing.
Happy Easter to you all. Till tomorrow!
