Cait came for a visit to Albany Thursday afternoon and we had a lovely time catching up for the rest of the evening. We started off baking some delicious apple crisp and experimenting with an apple / pumpkin pie recipe we found while surfing the inter-webs. Unfortunately the pie didn't turn out anything like we had expected. But, the apple crisp was quite delicious.

Last night I made a quick trip over to Germany! Okay, not really. But by the food I was eating I sure as heck could have been in another country! The boyfriend and I attended the Albany Pump Station's first annual Oktoberfest Beer Dinner, where we ate ourselves into a German food coma. The entire meal was $50 per person and included tax & gratuity (a very good price for the amount of food and experience you were getting).
Upon arriving, guests were asked to head upstairs and enjoy the Welcoming Reception. At this point, everyone was mingling a bit before sitting down and devouring their four course meal.

Last Thursday I had an adventurous night in the city! I drove down state to meet up with my twin sister and take a late afternoon train into New York.
We were heading down to see one of my favorite bands . . . Bon Iver! For those of you who are friends with me on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram I'm sure you already knew I was on my way to the concert (I was pretty excited and wanted everyone else to know too!)

Today's post is just a short one about music.
Yesterday morning I woke up to a song from a band formed in the mid 1970s and lasted until the early 90s; the Talking Heads. Now I don't know which song it was that woke me up, as I was still trying to figure out if I was dreaming while it was playing. However, I know I've heard many of their songs in the past. I'm sharing some of their songs with you because they put me in a great mood for the rest of the day! I hope you listen to them, enjoy them, and have a great day!

After coming home from the gym yesterday morning, I had to prepare for my early afternoon lunch guest. My friend Joey was stopping by so we could catch up and enjoy some yummy food together (a favorite past time for both of us).
To drink, we had sparkling water with strawberry basil fancy cubes, similar to the other cubes I've made in the past. I decided to start us off with a cheese platter of brie, boschetto truffle, and gouda with garlic herb crackers.
