During the week, I am very conscious of our eating. I don't eat processed stuff or things with preservatives as it is, but I am careful not to overindulge. On weekends, though, I splurge and will treat myself to desserts and heavier dishes.
Here's a sampling of some local favorites we had over the weekend:
The Ravioli Shop is a local company. Their Pumpkin Ravioli is divine! We chose the Asparagus with Goat Cheese. There are leeks in it and it is just SO good. I purchased ours at the Pittsford Farms Dairy.
I serve it with the easy marinara I make.
A love of ours? Antipasto from Rubino's on East Ridge Road in Irondequoit.

Bread from Petrillo's Bakery, a local business based on Rochester's Lyell Avenue. Hot and crusty and oh so good. We bought ours at Pittsford Farms Dairy.
A grape pie from Naples was dessert. We found it at Aman's on East Ridge Road right in Irondequoit.
As you can see, it was raining when I went.
A Sunday tradition: a trip to Ridge Donut Cafe on Portland Avenue between Rochester General and Wendy's. My favorites? Either the Cinnamon Twist or Buttermilk Glazed. Yum. The aroma of freshly made donuts wafts through the parking lot when you pull in and it smells so good.
