I discovered a family-friendly business that I want to share this week but first and update on efforts to make our home more energy efficient. I’ve blogged quite a bit about entering the
AHFC Home Energy Rebate Program. We’re doing it in an effort to save money in the long run. So far, we replaced our roof, windows, blew insulation in the attic and are now installing a new boiler. We have no heat or water for two days, so the family is bundling up and staying close to fireplace. Our second energy rating is in early February, I’ll keep you posted on how it all goes. Now, more about the family-friendly business.
If your child likes treats (what kid doesn’t), Sugarspoon may be the place for you. The café is located at 26th Avenue and Spenard Road. It offers freshly made treats ranging from chocolate cake, to cookies, to crème de pot. Wednesday is the day for little ones. The café runs a weekly special offering a cupcake and steamer for kids, parents get half off a drink of their choice. Come February, the chef is adding a menu dedicated to little ones. Strawberry shortcake sundaes and a black forest float with lots of sprinkles are a couple of menu items kids can look forward to. Sugarspoon is open from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday.
Speaking of sugar, I blogged a few months ago about efforts to keep weight gain to a minimum during my second pregnancy. The goal was 25 pounds, yea right. Let’s just say that I met that goal quite some time ago. I’ll write more about the weighty issue next Monday.
