Long time no chat! I had a nice weekend and mostly stayed away from the computer. While I wasn’t writing over the weekend I did enjoy catching up on some of my favorite blogs. My weekend started with an attempted crossfit Saturday morning. I got to the gym only to find out there was no classes this weekend, everyone went up to Cleveland to watch a competition. Since I couldn’t cross fit I went home and took Bentley for a 3 mile run/walk.
Saturday night involved takeout from a new to us Chinese place. I got the steamed tofu and vegetables with white rice and black bean sauce. I usually get an upset stomach after greasy Chinese food but this was really good and my stomach felt fine. We watched Daddy and Them, an old white trash movie and called it an early night.
I woke up bright and early Sunday morning. I was hungry and decided to make some pancakes. I had pancakes Saturday and Sunday morning, so good! My pancake is a take on two ingredient pancakes but with some modifications. I’ll post what I do soon.
After breakfast Tyler, Bentley and I headed up to Cincinnati. Tyler is golfing in a charity event this Wednesday and needed to pick up his golf clubs. Bentley enjoyed the ride up there. It’s so funny to watch his eyes and mouth in the wind.
We got hungry and decided to head to lunch while we were up there before heading back to Lexington. We were lucky to come across the taste of Newport. We actually ate in one of the small deli’s on the same street but made sure to stop for a strawberry basil popsicle on the way out. Tyler kept making fun of me, my teeth were full of basil. It was a great flavor combination and so refreshing.
While up in Cincinnati I made sure to get Tyler to stop at the market up there that has kabocha squash I picked up three squash, a lemon drop mellon and a cantaloupe. I roasted up the squash Stuft Mama style with cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice.
I made a quick dinner with the roast veggies and some chicken. I am excited to have lots of squash and chicken in the fridge for quick lunch additions throughout the week. Sweet potatoes with coconut butter are amazing!
Having eaten twice that much squash before plating dinner and then finishing my plate I defiantly think I had one day’s fill of orange. We ate dinner and then watched the Tony awards for a little while before falling asleep on the couch and then eventually making it to bed.
What was your favorite weekend meal? I really liked all of my meals, and am sure I ate way to much. I have a ton of leftovers in the fridge now and hopefully it will make for easy meals throughout the week. Favorite meal was a tie between Sundays pancake breakfast and dinner.
Did you do anything fun this weekend? I really enjoyed my run with Bentley on Saturday and walking around the food festival on Sunday.
