We had a busy weekend, full of studying (Dan), working (me), birthdays, sunshine and eating out. Dan’s schedule this past semester was kind of annoying with a lot of really long breaks between classes, the worst being on Friday’s when he had a morning class from 8-9am, then his next one wasn’t until 2pm. But, sometimes, when I would have a free morning, we’d get to have a random breakfast date, so it wasn’t always so bad. Since this past Friday was his last day of class, I picked him up and we had a quick and delicious breakfast at Papa Leo’s. We always get the Local when we go, so your typical bacon and eggs, but everything is so fresh and prepared so well, you really can’t go wrong. Plus, they have lot’s of other fancier options, which are all equally fresh and tasty. They really emphasize using fresh, locally sourced ingredients, and it definitely shows. The best part is, when you go first thing on Friday morning, you basically have the place to yourself, which is rare, as this place fills up quickly, as I’m sure you can imagine.
It was also my little brother’s birthday on Friday, so we ended going to Bread Bar to celebrate with a few of us. Dan and I got there early to get us a table and while we waited, we wandered some alleys on Locke St and enjoyed the sunshine (and took some outfit pictures. of course.) Jacob and I shared a pizza (my favourite is the apple, bacon & sage) and there were even some leftovers for Jacob to take home. Although he’s pretty sure my dad stole them, because the bag was nowhere to be found the next day. Interesting. On Sunday we all went to my parent’s for dinner and did celebratory Jagerbomb’s, because my dad just discovered Jagermeister this week and wants to know all the ways one drinks it. Unfortunately for him, it’s not the most versatile drink, but on the other hand, I guess nothing says family birthday dinner like doing Jagerbombs together. So this is our new tradition. You go most places, you get birthday cake, you come to our house, and it’s Jagerbombs all around.
