This weekend was a fun and busy one, so I thought it would only be appropriate to share with you the highlights (and lowlights) superlative style…
Best New Restaurant
Picture outside the restaurant? Clearly we don’t get out much
Hubbs ordered the bison burger and fried pickles. Holy moly, those fried pickles were the Biz-Omb! (Worth a trip to CLT, Xtina!)
I went with a fusion dish called Mary had a little Lamb-urgushi. “All natural ground seasoned lamb, kalamata olives, capers, feta cheese, red onions and spring mix rolled hosomaki style with soy paper and rice. Each piece is topped with tzatziki sauce, diced tomato, English cucumber, fried capers and fresh chopped mint”
Between the presentation and the capers, I was sold. So good!
Best Celebrity Sighting
He’s so much taller than I would have imagined!
Ok, I’m about to get crucified. You know when you are excited to see a movie because everyone tells you it’s the BEST movie they’ve ever seen in the whole wide world… then, no matter how good the movie is, it kind of lets you down?
It happened to me at Lululemon.
The people were fantastically friendly and helpful, the clothes were super cute, but the wonder unders? Sure they were comfortable, but they sure didn’t transform my life… or my thighs. I hesitate to show you this, but proof:
No one needs to see that walking around the grocery store. I liked the Groove Pants much better, but I found a pair of Nike pants at Nordstroms that felt just as great for 1/2 the price. #sorryimnotsorry
Best Food Find
Hummus mix! As I was perusing the aisles at my beloved Healthy Home Market, I found this:
Just add water and olive oil? It sounded awesome. And it was.
This is my new go-to for hummus! So much cheaper and it’s really good! Plus, I can mix in whatever I please… garlic, olives, etc.
The Coco Loco from Noda Brewing Company. It’s a porter, which isn’t usually my style, but it was delicious! We hope to go back sometime to take a brewery tour for my homebrew-loving hubby.
