What I Ate Saturday
This weekend went by way too fast. Even though it was a long weekend, I felt like it flew by! I already shared a few of the bites that I had on Friday, I thought I’d give you the highlights of what I ate in a day over the weekend.
I’ve been rocking the smoothie bowls. I seriously can’t stop. Just expect these on repeat until forever. (Or until I can’t find good strawberries anymore.)
I’m all about the toppings. And adorable bowls that don’t stack properly with the rest of our bowls. Sorry, Alex. (Last night, Alex discovered that I’ve been hiding more decorative bowls inside the other decorative bowls. He’s on to me.)
I hadn’t gone grocery shopping and I didn’t feel like fighting the crowds over the weekend so I was relying on pantry staples for lunch. Easy black bean soup to the rescue!
I did have some ripe avocados on hand so I made some of Mark’s famous guacamole.
It’s definitely better when Mark makes it, but this one was pretty good!
We actually got a lot of cleaning and yard work done in the afternoon, so I think we were both pretty hungry for dinner. We went for a walk around Carytown and then stopped at The Daily for dinner.
They have one of my favorite kale salads! It’s topped with apples, pumpkin seeds, pomegranate, and pecorino cheese. The bowl is like twice the size of my head. I ate every bite because it’s so good. After dinner, we grabbed an iced coffee at Sugar & Twine, which we shared on our walk home.
Since we ate an early dinner, we had room for dessert later. We took a trip to Sweet Frog with a couple of friends.
Fun fact: When Alex and I first started dating, we literally went to Sweet Frog like 3 times a week. It was dangerous. I think we’ve dialed it back to more realistic levels but we’re still regulars. I just love frozen yogurt! Ice cream is one of my favorite desserts and I love all the fun toppings! I usually go for a cake batter + chocolate frozen yogurt base with cookie dough, Oreos, Reese’s, & strawberries on top. So I guess the day started and ended with a delicious bowl piled high with toppings!
What’s your favorite dessert?
Linking up with Arman for What I Ate Wednesday!
Did you mention your and Alex’ frozen yoghurt habit before? I feel like you did – or maybe I’m making that up. Reading a blog for years might do that to your mind ;). Anyway, your frozen yogurt creation sounds great.
Ice cream is my favorite dessert, too. Only I have it by far not often enough as it’s more enjoyable eaten with others and most of my friends live quite far away. Fingers crossed the upcoming holiday will allow for more ice cream dates with friends.
Yay for being able to comment again! Also, I have dish-ues, too = a dish collection problem. Especially those that don’t stack well with others. Bloggers …
Haha If I haven’t actually said it, you’ve probably just noticed because I’m always talking about frozen yogurt! Definitely hoping for more ice cream dates in your future ?
I love froyo for all of the toppings too. I feel like you can never have enough and I love the ability to pick and choose exactly what I want.
I love fro yo too! Mostly for the toppings and all the choices and options. I typically have 2-3 types of yogurt and a bazillion toppings!
I love fro-yo so much, mostly cause of all the toppings, but they are coming out with so many flavors all the time which is super fun. And all your bowls are so fun. Blogger bowls are always one of my favorite dishes to look at.
Berries at this time of year are amazing. I’m with you on the deliciousness of strawberries + blueberries… We might even get raspberries on our bushes this year, hopefully!
Ohhh fresh raspberries are so yummy and I bet they’re even better when you pick them yourself!
Your fave froyo sounds a lot like mine – but add some whipped cream and sprinkles because I’m 5 😉
Ice cream is my favorite dessert but froyo also has a place in my heart – I love to do a berry and peanut butter swirl for a PB&J treat!
I always put strawberries and oreos on my frozen yogurt. I don’t know what it is about that combo, but it’s so good! Reeses are pretty awesome too, though. I think I get more excited about the toppings than the actual froyo haha.
I go through phases with dessert. Right now it’s banana ice cream (actually I just eat that for dinner) plus all the toppings!
That fro yo looks great. I love frozen yogurt because there are so many topping options! All these eats look so yummy
My hubby and I used to live right across the street from a froyo place. In the summer time [when we had no AC] we would have froyo for dinner probably 3-4x a week. Oops 😉
