After getting all worked up about not having plans, this low-key weekend ended up being quite wonderful and relaxing. Well, except for the Georgia/Tennessee game. That was in no way relaxing, but we pulled it out… barely. My heart actually still goes out to the Tennessee player who caused the touchback. Poor guy. And Marshall, too. Wishing him the best and a speedy recovery.
Ok, this is not a football blog. I apologize.
Let’s chat food?
We had a lovely Sunday, starting with an outdoor breakfast at Toast in Davidson. Hailey particularly loves this spot because of the apple butter, which she happily nose dives into. I can’t blame her. Their food is consistently delicious!
I got got wild and skipped my usual omelet for a combo. Mmm, blueberry pancake and crispy bacon!
After breakfast we decided there was no time like the present to start college tours.
They grow up so fast, don’t they?
We wore Hailey out so I got the treat of grocery shopping alone.
I love this triple threat. The Meat House offers incredible marinated chicken and meat options, Josh’s has locally grown produce at great prices and Target is just the perfect catch-all for everything else.
My favorite purchase yesterday were these fresh-off-the-farm eggs. Love the eggs, hate the container. I had to build these beauties a bed of towels to keep from creating an omelet in my backseat.
Once home I unloaded all my goodies onto the counter to admire. That’s normal, right?
On the menu this week…
Layered Fiesta Bowls with Homemade Guacamole
Vegetable Lentil Soup with Grilled Cheese
Chicken Caesar Salads
Mexi-Loaded Baked Potatoes and Salad
Clean Out the Fridge/Pantry Night
I’ve noticed our pantry is a bit overloaded, so I’m trying to add in clean-it-out night once a week until it’s back under control. And as for the homemade guacamole? It was a brilliant addition.
What’s on your favorite meal of your menu this week?
