I was so excited for Sunday morning because we both had zero work type obligations and an entire day of really super fun things planned. Well two fun things were planned. We had a scrumptious breakfast of pumpkin waffles with chocolate chips, topped with bananas and syrup. I'd post the recipe but it's just the box of mix from trader joes. They were tasty, not overpowering or too pumpkiny (if there is such a thing)...and let's be real waffles are always a good treat.
After the big breakfast I got ready for our number 2 fun thing: the Magic/Nets game at the new Barclays Center. Since Dwight left, I'll admit that I haven't watched any Magic games at all. I know. I'm one of those fans. To be honest I really don't like watching sports on TV and now that we are in New York, there are few occasions to see the Magic play. I was thinking I'd pull out my old Stan Van shirt or maybe even my Jameer jersey, but Louis informed me that New York basketball games are way fancier than Florida basketball games. He was a little wrong about this---but I like getting a little dressed up, so I didn't complain. Besides, on the off-chance that I ran into Jay Z (or Katie Holmes or Scarlett) I wanted to look my best.
I was really excited to see what the stadium looked like...and it's beautiful. Yardley and Louis said that it's even better than the Orlando Arena.
We got an All You Can Eat pass with our tickets because it's November and that means holiday eating will soon occur--don't bother saving the cals. All of us had Fatty 'Cue. I chose the mac n cheese with brisket. Oh man. So good. They had a lot of other good looking food stands...even a Calexico which is one of my fave Brooklyn restaurants. I didn't do much Allyoucaneat-ing, but the guys got a second meal of chicken wings because they could. Please note that tiny soda. You can only get the small ones now. Pro-health. After this I got myself a giant Coors Light.
