What I Ate: Weekend Recap
Saturday was one of those days where we didn’t really plan anything and we were just waiting to see where the day would take us. We woke up early, made some coffee, and ate a quick breakfast before heading out to walk around the river.
It was so foggy and we didn’t see very many people along the way. It was so beautiful!
Once we finished our walk around, we stopped by the South of the James farmers market to grab some produce before heading home.
Obviously we had to get a Mrs. Yoder’s donut. If you live in Richmond, then you should know about these donuts. They have magical powers. We dropped our stuff off but didn’t stay inside for long because it was so nice outside! We decided to take a walk into Carytown.
We did a little window shopping and browsed around Bygones for awhile. We eventually headed home and I made chili while Alex mowed the lawn. (It’s finally starting to feel like soup/chili weather!)
This was tomatoes, black beans, kidney beans, corn, and lots of garlic, cumin, & cilantro!
We spent the afternoon just relaxing. Alex watched the Wisconsin game and I caught up on some blog reading. It was nice to just sit for awhile, since we’d gotten in over 10K steps before noon!
Once we got hungry for dinner, we walked back to Carytown to grab a bite. We somehow managed to score a table on the patio at The Daily Kitchen & Bar which is tough on a Saturday night! I had the kale salad (and a few handfuls of Alex’s french fries) and I ate every bite of this giant bowl.
I love The Daily because they have so many vegetarian options. (The menu also notes gluten free options, and even paleo items.) This kale salad was so good. Our plan was to play some putt-putt after dinner but we realized that the course was about to close as we were finishing up our dinner so we settled for Sweet Frog instead. Frozen yogurt is always a good idea.
Not a bad way to end our Saturday! I think I needed it after all the activity. According to my FitBit, we took over 24K steps!
What’s the last thing you ate?
I’m linking up to What I Ate Wednesday!
Sourdough donuts?! Where have those been all my life!
Also, the foggy picture from your walk is stunning. Such an awesome way to start your morning!
I exceptionally love taking so many steps on my fitbit, sometimes that is one of the highlights of my husband and I’s vacation…for me anyways…haha. I love love love froyo that pic looks so delicious!
Haha you and me both! I love getting in my steps 🙂
The scenery on your walk looked wonderful. Once the cooler weather hits I start craving soups/stews/chilis. So warm and comforting to enjoy on a cool day. Easy to whip together too!
Won’t lie to you – I get the question “do you miss any foods that you can’t eat anymore” and honestly, I don’t really… But when I see pictures of donuts… I can’t help but miss them a tiny bit. LOL! Sugar, Dairy, Gluten, Soy, Nut & Fruit-Free donuts just aren’t really the same, ha ah ah!
I’ve heard Yodars is amazing. It sounds really good too. I’m a big donut fiend myself so these look right up my ally.
I just had to say how BEAUTIFUL your pictures of the park in the fog are – gorgeous!
Wow, 24k steps is awesome!! Sounds like such a fun weekend. I’m so excited that it’s starting to feel like chili weather!
Yes!!! That means boots & scarves weather is coming! 😉
I am super jealous that you have The Daily in your town. I took a peek at the menu and I want to eat everything! I also love that they label everything so you know exactly what you’re getting. Tell them to head on over to Chicago….
Haha yeah it’s the only place I’ve seen “Paleo” indicated on a menu! I’m not paleo but I think that’s pretty cool!
Holy moly thats a ton of steps! But what a great day to spend together. Im hoping when I move to be able to find things like this for my husband to do, although living out in the country all we really want to do is go to yard sales!!
Hey, nothing wrong with yard sales! We actually tried to go to one on Saturday but the signs ended up not taking us anywhere 😉
Those donuts… they sound so delicious! I love fall for apple cidar donuts!
