Happy New Year! 2011 is here. Did you make your resolutions? I made mine a few days ago in the post labeled Goals for 2011.

On New Year’s Eve, I decided to try a test run with my espresso machine. Success! I was able to produce a serving of espresso. I will need to purchase a frothing pitcher as one did not come with the machine. And I need some espresso cups. My extra large coffee cups are too large.

Later today, I treated my mom to lunch and a movie. We went to Mimi’s Cafe for lunch. I actually had breakfast consisting of pumpkin pancakes with cinnamon apples and scrambled eggs. I also treated myself to a Pimosa – a drink similar to a Mimosa but with a combination of different types of juices.

Pumpkin pancakes!


I ordered coffee after lunch

We had a lovely time at Mimi’s as always. After lunch we went to see “The Tourist” at the movies. We enjoyed Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie’s performance. I joked with my sister that I was working on getting the “daughter of the year award” by taking mom out for a fun filled day! She has some catching up to do!
