After a hectic Saturday filled with car problems, the farmer's market, Esmae's photo shoot, working and Patrick's co-worker's wedding we were both ready for a day devoted to doing things we wanted to do. Without a real plan it ended up being an Ideal Sunday.
We got up on time for church, but we still ended up being a little late. I am sure that has nothing to do with the fact that we had to stop for donuts on the way to church. After church we went to the Hiawatha Golf Course right near our church. Patrick just got a new driver and was planning on going to the driving range on Saturday morning, but he ended up having to deal with my car issues instead. It was good to get out and hit a few balls, hopefully we can get on the course at a least a couple times this summer.
After the driving range we were hungry for lunch so we pulled out the old iPhone and found a little deli called Cecils in Highland Park. It was exactly what we were looking for, a locally owned deli with great sandwiches. I had a turkey sandwich with muenster and tomato along with potato salad and Patrick had a pastrami sandwich with muenster, peppers and onions with a a side of pasta salad. We both really enjoyed trying a new place and we are going to try to make it priority to try more places near church since we are there every Sunday and we may as well try out a new place every once in a while.
Up next on on our Ideal Sunday was strawberry picking. Patrick had talked to our friend Dan the week before and he and a few of his friends were picking strawberries that day. Of course when I heard that I got really excited and wanted to go strawberry picking. The farm that they picked strawberries at was Applewood Orchard in Lakeville. Since they had a good experience there and the berries were only $1.39 a pound we decided to go there as well.
It was a really warm day and by the time we started picking it was around 1pm. I definitely would recommend starting earlier if you are serious about picking a lot of strawberries. It probably worked out that it was so hot though otherwise we would have ended up with way more strawberries than I would know what to do with.
And here was the final tally, as you can see I was the slacker and only picked four pounds, while Patrick picked five and half pounds. And I am sure you are all dying to know what we are going to do with ten pounds of strawberries. Well, don't worry I will update you in a future post.
