Mimi's And A Movie

"W" and I had such a great day today!  We went to church and after church we decided to go out to eat. (Since he has been out of work, we have not been eating out very often and so it was a real treat to get to go out.)  This Sunday, "Mimi's Kitchen" was closed, but "Mimi's Cafe" was open!

Faith had given me strict instructions prior to going there, that I HAD to try the Carrot Raisin Nut Muffin and let me tell you...It did not disappoint!  It was scrumptious!

We decided to order from the breakfast menu since it was still only 11:30 am, and this is what we split - Mimi's Original Pain Perdu Breakfast.

It came with French Toast stuffed with cream cheese and orange marmalade! 

Here's a picture of "W" humoring me by allowing me to take yet another picture.

After eating a big breakfast, we decided that we probably needed to "Move It, Move It, so we caught a matinee and went to see this.

It was so cute!  I think that we were the only adults in the theater without kids with us and I think we laughed harder than anyone else.  There was a lot of adult humor and I think it is probably one of those movies that every time you see it you would hear or see something that you hadn't caught before!

When we came out, "W" said, "Wow, we've had more fun THIS weekend than we've had in a long time!"

We headed back home to "Mimi's Kitchen" and started making some Holiday Cheese Balls. (Some of the girls I work with have been after me to make one of my cheese balls, so I finally got it done this evening!)

I will be posting the recipe for these little "gems" on Mimi's Making Meals in just a few days, so be sure to check them out!

Laura Ann said...

Yummy....I can not wait to get the recipe to that.

I had no idea your husband had been out of work. I am going to add you guys to my prayer list.

Looks like you guys had a great day and I know you probably both deserved it.

OH my that cheeseball looks delish! Can't wait for the recipe! Sounds like you and "W" had a GREAT time. We can't wait to see Madagaskar 2, we loved the first one!!!

Jenna said...

I loved this post! Mainly because I love keeping up with the wonderful MiMi!!

Glad ya'll had a good weekend! The pictures in this post should not be viewed this late in the evening though - they will cause me to go downstairs searching for bacon and any kind of carb I can get ahold to. :)

Love you!!

Betsy said...

What a fun day!!! How handsome "W" is!!!

And I LOVE kids movies - always try to steal a kid so we dont look too odd going in without one - but sometimes, you just gotta do it - & yeah, I'm usually the one laughing the loudest!

Cant wait for the receipe for that cheese ball...that made my stomach growl just looking at it!

Sounds like you had a wonderful day! The meal looked like it was absolutely delicious.

I can't wait to get the recipe for the cheese balls. Yummy!

I'm glad I'm not the only one who takes pictures of everything... including my food. When we were in NYC last March my sister and I split the most amazing reuben sandwich. It was huge and I just had to snap a picture. I don't really care if people make fun of me. ;) It's in my NYC photo album and I'll always have that to remind me.

Glad you had such a fun weekend with your hubby.

Have a great week.
