Weekends Before Social Distancing :)

I thought it would be nice to look back on the good ol’ days that were filled with friends, food, and fun…gosh you guys I do love a good alliteration 🙂

This particular weekend recap is from a while ago so pleaaase enjoy the post and continue to stay at home and Facetime!

We’ve always been big into including workouts and plenty of activity just to help balance out some of the goodies we eat during the weekends. We started Friday off with a good workout and a walk to Starbucks for breakfast.

We always love their spinach egg white feta wrap, turkey bacon and cheddar and egg English muffin, and the egg white sous vide. It was a really great breakfast! There was a farmer’s market so after breakfast we walked around and bought some mandarins and oranges.

We had a fun little dinner at King’s Fish House. We somehow ended up getting full of apps and their delicious sourdough bread and that was totally fine!

We ended up walking home as rain started sprinkling down and had some dessert at home. We’ve both been enjoying having more fruit and I am so excited for summer fruit season!

We watched The Stranger-you guys we literally watched every single episode in this one night. It was so good!

Saturday included another workout and we ended up heading to the mall to find some work shoes for me. We found some good options, but ultimately decided to find some online.

We did find a kiosk selling these marshmallow treats and we had to try them! They ended up being just okay, but I am happy to have tried them.

We hung out with some friends Saturday night. Our initial plan was sushi, but there was an hour to 90 minute wait and we were not about that. We left and went to a food market and tried out the wing spot-Fire Wings.

I loved doing this because we got to try a bunch of different flavors and my absolute favorite out of all of this was the seasoned fries and the Thai chili wings. You guys these were some crispy wings! I cannot wait to go back and see if the quality stands and try more flavors!

We kept Sunday pretty chill. Instead of a workout we went on a walk and picked up some last minute groceries.

We caught up on stuff and got ready for the week ahead. After wrapping up laundry we went and walked to pick up dinner and dessert.

We’ve been loving the larger pizzas from Blaze so we ordered a couple (one for today and one for the week).

I got some mini cupcakes from Baked and I am so sad to report that three out of four of these cupcakes were “meh.” They seemed almost dry? The dulce de leche was still so good though 🙂

We consumed more fruit and went for another walk before settling in to chill out for the night.

Let me know what your current weekends are looking like in the comments below!

 

Treat Review

We LOVE treats in this house and a majority of the posts that I do contain some sort of treat because it makes my heart happy. I thought a fun way to share some treats from the past month would be to do a little review.

Let’s start with this cereal pie from Pie Hole. If I’m being completely honest neither of us are big into pie, but this was more like a cheesecake with fruity cereal mixed into the cheesecake batter. I have no complaints and would give this a 5/5 stars!

You guys know how obsessed I have been with Baked and how much I love their treats. When I saw this ube brownie I needed to try it out so that is what we did. This is 3/5 stars because this felt more like a cake in texture than a brownie. The flavor was a yummy, mild ube flavor but I was expecting chewy fudgy brownie and this was not that.

After our outrageous Reeses apple from Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory we knew we needed to try out their other sweets. We had high expectations for this chocolate caramel covered marshmallow. I was imagining milk chocolate with creamy caramel and fluffy marshmallow, but instead it was milk chocolate with hard, crunchy caramel and not much marshmallow. Rating? 3/5

An extreme high note from Rocky Mountain was this concoction called an “avalanche.” It’s Rice Krispy cereal mixed with peanut butter and marshmallow and topped with little mini chocolate chips. This was one of my favorite things of life. I rate this a million/5 😀

I’m planning on doing these every now and then just because I enjoy reading them and I find them helpful. Let me know what you guys think!

Also, what are some of your favorite treats?

Some stuff I forgot to mention…

Before Christmas and our trips we were trying to not waste food so we were using up what we had left and we chose to eat out after that so we had some really yummy food that I never had a chance to share with you guys. Besides that B took a lot of these pics and they were so good I couldn’t help but share!

Starting off on a sweet note we had Baked for dessert one night…I’m not sure how good it is that we live so close to one. It’s seriously so freakin’ good. I really want one right now!

Speaking of Baked, you know what else is good from there? Their cheesecakes. This one in particular is the yema creme brulee one and it was one of the best cheesecake/dessert items I have ever had. Since then we’ve tried the ube and it’s also incredible, but I would say go for the yema first!

I’ve known about Harry and David pears and decided to try them out with the husband when we spotted them at our Trader Joe’s. I’m not sure if I’m missing something, but they tasted like a good ol’ fashioned pear?! Nothing spectacular…

We had some Thai food-soup and pad thai for the win. It was a cold day and this was some Thai comfort food at it’s best.

To say I had a lot of turkey sandwiches would be an understatement. For whatever reason sandwiches and chips were just really hitting the spot at the time and why stop when you have a good thing going?

We recently discovered Mr. Dumpling and have been back a couple more times (that’s how good it is!). We got the fish and celery dumplings as well as the beef and green onion. We got the spicy beef soup which was fantastic as always…this sounds pretty delectable right now.

Last but not least we have the bagel sandwiches from 42nd Street Bagel Cafe. Keep the sandwiches and chips coming! We got an everything bagel with egg and cheese as well as their pastrami sandwich on an everything. I loved both, but the pastrami sandwich won out by a tinyyy bit here. Honestly, their bagels by themselves are so yummy! I am so happy to have found this bagel place!
