This past weekend was a lot of fun.  It snowed on Friday- we ended up with about 2-3 inches I think?  Saturday my sister and I went on a run together…the frigid cold and snow certainly did not stop us!  It was actually nice with the snow.  We ran 8 miles on a trail called “Forbidden drive” in Philly- the snow plus the hills made for a pretty hard workout. There was actually a lot of people out walking and running on the trail–the snow made it so beautiful.  For a moment or two you forgot that were  in Philadelphia- it is so quiet, peaceful, wooded and pretty… a nice break from the craziness of life.

One of my good friends from Loyola, Megan, turned 24 on saturday and a bunch of my girlfriends and I went to Revel in AC to celebrate.  We all had a lot of fun together- it makes me miss the good old days of college. I love those girls!

Sunday I managed to wake up early in AC and head to Princeton to meet Harry for breakfast.  He is away on a rotation up in north jersey somewhere and we decided to meet sort of halfway to see each other for a few hours. It was a nice morning/afternoon together.  I love that boy; he makes me very happy and I am a lucky girl!  It was just one of those perfect days together :)  By the way, the picture below is of the Princeton Crew team’s boat house and ice cream and cupcakes from The Bent Spoon in Princeton…best cupcakes I have ever had.  If you ever go to Princeton, go to this place.  That and Teresa’s Cafe.

I have never made risotto before I made this recipe. For some reason I was intimated by the thought of making it.  I guess I thought it would be difficult to make…but it actually easy!  The finished product does make you look like a talented chef, though!  This was another winning recipe from How Sweet Eats.  This can be enjoyed a a main entree (along side a salad or something small), as a side dish of a dinner or as a lunch!  A very delicious and wholesome recipe!
