A Nutella Latte at Patisserie Poupon

January 23, 2011

Oh yes, a Nutella latte is just what it sounds like and tastes as incredible as you’re imagining.

I met up with my friends today for brunch at Patisserie Poupon and after telling Allie I wanted a super-special and delicious birthday drink, she whipped up this incredible mixture of chocolate, coffee and hazelnut. There are definite perks to having a barista as a friend, let me tell you. 😀

Today was another freezing January day so I ditched the Metro in favor of the car. It’s rare I would choose driving over public transportation but bitterly cold weather turns me into a total wimp. Once warm inside the cafe, Simone, Zoe and I had to stare down people lingering over coffee until a table cleared up — when there are only a dozen tiny tables, you have to give an intimidating glance or two. Guess no one else wanted to head back into the cold either!

I spy with my little eye… Zoe and Simone! 😀

The paninis at Patisserie Poupon are the size of my face (a good thing!): whole wheat bread with mozzarella, peppers, eggplant, zucchini and pesto. Yum!

Before brunch, I was finally able to make time for a haircut. I’m not crazy about the way hair stylists blow out hair but it’s nice to lose a couple of inches.



I’ll be able to wash and style it myself. And by style, I mean quickly blowdrying and running a straightener through it before work because I am a lazy hair stylist, let me tell you. 🙂

After dropping the girls off at home, I spent some time elliptical-ing while catching up with those crazy Beverly Hills ‘Housewives.’ Getting wrapped up in all their drama made the minutes fly by! I’m not hungry at all tonight — must have been all the cupcakes, cake, cookies and fudge I ate this weekend — so dinner might end up being a bowl of cereal or something equally unexciting.

Every relaxing weekend should involve friends and food, in my opinion. What is the ideal Sunday for you?

    Looks like a lovely afternoon! My ideal saturday would be sleeping in, a big breakfast, some books and a fire in the winter!

    Your hair looks very pretty.

    My ideal Sunday is pretty similar to yours. I’d probably throw a good run in there in the morning too.

    I’ll echo the comments on your hair – it looks really cute. And I am seriously drooling over your nutella latte. I love nutella! Putting it in a latte – genius!

    Happy Birthday!
