Sundae Thursday

February 4, 2011

Hi friends! Happy Thursday to ya. Tonight, I had plans for a get-together with Emily.  Originally, we were going to get drinks, but she e-mailed me this morning and asked how I felt about doing dessert instead.  You don’t have to twist my arm to get me to agree to an ice cream date!

When I got home from teaching, I had a quick Amy’s lasagna for dinner:

Mmmmm…pretty good for a microwave dinner!

Then, after dinner, I headed out to meet Emily for dessert at Friendly’s.  Friendly’s seems to be an institution in the Northeast, but this was actually my first time ever to visit one! I was not disappointed!

Mmmmmm…cinnamon roll sundae, get in my belly.  Yes, that is an entire cinnamon roll in there.  Wowza.  

Now I need to go pack—we’re leaving tomorrow for a conference in DC! The conference is AWP—Association of Writers and Writing Programs—and many of my friends from grad school and undergrad are going to be there, along with some big name writers like Jhumpa Lahiri and Junot Diaz, so I’m very excited! 

See ya from AWP!

    Friendly’s! There was one near our local movie theater growing up, and we’d always go afterwards to get Friend-Zs. Soft serve and candy, what could be better?

    You popped your Friendlys cherry–hooray! I love Friendlys ice cream and am sad we dont have them here 😦

    That lasagna looks really good considering it’s a frozen meal. But then again, amy very rarely disappoints….

    The conference sounds wonderful! I apologize for not stopping by here lately — work has re-blocked some sites as “social networking” and yours is one 😦 I can’t even use quota time to get on, grrr!! Friendly’s…YUM! Love it!

    Oh my–cinnamon roll sundae? What will they think of next?!

    Friendly’s is quite the institution here. I remember going with my family after skiing, with friends after school, and it’s quite possibly my first date with Roger was at a Friendly’s. Glad you enjoyed it.

    Have a great time at AWP!

    Your first visit to Friendly’s?! Did you live under a rock? 😉

    Awesome about the DC trip, can’t wait to hear about it!

    I LOVE Friendly’s. What I don’t love? The fact that MTV passed on a new LC reality show. The girl is pure GOLD!!!

    I love sundaes! Such a great dessert!

    My husband loves friendly’s, I’ve had it a couple of times in my life. They aren’t the cleanest places, but good for ice cream!

    Wow – did NOT know Amy’s frozen foods were that good!! Holy yum looking!! I will definitely be picking one of those up when I go grocery shopping today (:

    And I haven’t been to a Friendly’s since I lived in Altoona – heartbreaking! They do have some of the best desserts!!

    Enjoy your conference. And that dessert- holy moly. Go big or go home when it comes to dessert!

    Love Friendly’s! I have never had the Cinnamon Roll Sundae before though, usually go for the Frend-z’s (not sure how you spell it, other than it is a play on “Frenzy”)–it looks delish though!

    GET IN MY BELLY!! haha, I love that. This post makes me want ice cream…right…now. My throat is really sore so ice cream sounds perfect.

    Hope you’re enjoying the conference!
