I love a good long weekend…who doesn’t? We took full advantage of this one and did (and ate quite a bit). Go ahead and settle in for what may end up being a long post!
Friday we ended up making some dinner at home. I don’t like to waste things and we had some potato buns that needed to be used up so we got some Boar’s Head pastrami and made sammies.
We also tried a couple of more slices of cake from Susie Cakes-one was raspberry and the other was red velvet. I loved the red velvet whereas the hubs preferred the denser raspberry.
Saturday, we started out with a workout, breakfast snack and then a hike. The hike ended up being somewhat of a fail because we were hoping for ocean views and super blooms, but instead got very hot and a few creeks. It’s not a complete fail because any activity is good activity 🙂
We made it home for showers and naps before heading out to Magicopolis for a magic show. It was from 8 to 10pm and ended up being hilarious and magical!
After much pondering we decided to try Cheesecake Factory out again for late night dinner.
We started with their bread (noms) and Asian lettuce wraps (double noms)
For our main we got the Tuscan chicken from their skinnylicious menu
And we had to get dessert so we got their chocolate truffle tower cake. This was pretty fantastic. Our server said this was the “lightest” of the 3 chocolate cakes they offer. I was happy with our choice of the chocolate tower 🙂
Sunday morning included a workout and a fun little brunch at Claudine Kitchen and Bakeshop. This time I got a salmon sandwich and the hubs got a create your own omelette.
We had ordered their special cookie butter coffee cake of the day, but they ended up refunding us because they were out 😦
Luckily for us, it was a warm day and we thought açaí bowls sounded pretty tasty. We found Ubatuba Acai at a different location that you can have as many toppings as you want!
They also had a lot of different bases like chia pudding, açaí, pitaya, etc. We ended up ordering one to share and got açaí, chia pudding, and pitaya. I believe we topped it with sweet and condensed milk, honey, mangoes, and two types of granola.
It was refreshing, sweet, and oh so tasty!
We ran some errands and then headed to a couple’s massage. Hubs had gotten this Groupon a while ago and we never had a chance to use it, but nothing gets us more motivated to use something other then it being close to expiring. Anybody else? I have never had a massage (crazy! I know) and so I was a tad nervous, but it ended up being a really great experience.
Sunday night means burgers so that is what we had for dinner and we used up all our potato buns so yay for no waste!
After Claudine’s we had walked around and found Sweet Lady Jane Bakery so we stopped in and saw so many delicious sweets. We picked up a slice of triple berry for dessert later and ended up having it after dinner!
This caps our weekend! We definitely had a lot of cake this weekend, but recently it’s been our go-to dessert 🙂 Thanks for reading!
