Woo, this weekend has been pretty nuts. I hope you all have had a wonderful weekend 🙂
I’ll post some highlights!
Yesterday after yoga with mi madre we went to Great Harvest (man this place is addicting) and got a loaf of their March Special. Irish Soda Bread!! I’ve never had it before, and WOW this was good. So doughy and warm and filled with golden and regular raisins. Perfection.
Yesterday consisted of lots of errands. I moved most of my stuff into my place today, so yesterday was filled with getting things together, picking up a few items that i needed, etc. When I was at Marshalls looking for some kitchen goods, I found a William Sonoma vegetarian cookbook for $3.99. It was originally for sale at $18 at the store. This is why I love me some Marshalls. I used it for dinner last night and cooked up an amazing and quick meal. It was sweet potato and chickpea curry. We only had chinese sweet potatoes at my house ( they’re white, not orange, and taste a little more starchy) but it worked really well. I served it over some rice. This will make some amazing leftovers.
This morning I woke up early to get in my last Bikram class with my sister before she left. I was so exhausted so I kind of plowed through the class, just trying to make it to the end. When we got home we came home to the most amazing smelling kitchen. My mom had made some blueberry french toast casserole with the leftovers from the cinnamon chip loaf from Great Harvest we picked up last weekend. This bread couldn’t have been made more for french toast.
After breakfast we said goodbye to my sister then headed on over to Baltimore to move me in. It was a longgg day, but we got most of the furniture in there. Wed I have a half day because I have a dr appointment, so after that we’ll be heading over again to put together some of the new furniture from ikea! yayyy 🙂 so so excited! My friend brooke helped me move in with her brothers pick up truck so once we were done I took her out to a late dinner/early lunch. We went to Abbey Burger Bistro right down the street from my house. I’ve heard amazing things about this place… and they were all true. They use locally raised meats, everything is made to order, you can choose from their menu or you can use the checklist they provide and make your own with everything personalized. I ordered their veggie burger, with sweet potato fries on the side and the chipotle mayo and herbed yogurt sauce on the side.
This was by far the best veggie burger i’ve ever had. I feel like most of the time they’re in a solid patty and you can’t really tell whats in it. You could see all of the veggies in the patty, the grilled onions, the carrots, and it was to die for. They had crisp cucumbers, the reddest tomato i’ve ever had, and a small amount of amazing cheese. Nothing was greasy and they gave just the right amount of fries to feel like I didn’t overstuff myself. This was an amazing little restaurant and I will definitely be back 🙂
The sweet Leanne from Fuel and Fitness sent me a wonderful package as a thank you for designing her header!! She gave me some Lindt truffles, some dried papaya, and some yogi tea! Thank you Leanne you are such a doll!
I’m off to relax and read a little of Naturally Thin, so far so good, can’t wait to review it for you guys! Have a great Sunday night loves xoxo
