Happy Monday everyone! Hope you’re day is getting off to a great start! Today has been a busy one for me…researching and purchasing flights to visit my in-laws in New York at the end of November (yipeee!) and the usual busyness work brings to Monday mornings…I’m not complaining though since that means the day goes by just that much quicker! And I have fun plans for tonight…hubby and I are going out to dinner with his coworker and wife to an amazing sushi restaurant in San Francisco, Ozumo. My sis has been before and said it’s spectacular and the food is off the charts delicious so I can’t wait! I feel like with tonight and the past couple days I’ve had quite the foodie experiences so let’s get right into why I had such a good tasty weekend 😉
Saturday morning started off as usual with my fav spin class and then it was off to lunch with my best buds – my mom and sister! I’m sure it comes as no surprise to you all that we went to our fav restaurant for huge salads and fro yo 😉
Hubby had to work all weekend so even though he was pretty tired, I encouraged him to get gussied up and look forward to a nice, intimate dinner out to brighten his mood and give him a nice ending to his workday. We’re thankful to live close to our downtown area where there are an assortment of nice restaurants to choose from, so we went to our tried and true fav where we know we’ll always get delicious food and never be disappointed, Kingfish!
There was a wait for a table so we sat at the bar for a bit…fine by me in that it gave us some time to chat and people watch (something I really love to do! ;))
Hubby got a martini and I stuck to diet coke…I was the DD and haven’t been imbibing since our Getting Ready plans. Once we were seated we were greeted with their awesome bread basket. I had about 2 of these…
And then…dessert!! My ultimate fav part of restaurant dining, or anytime for that matter 😉 Kingfish now has complimentary treats at the end of your meal (a very welcoming and fun surprise!), so we started with that…
And you know this dessert fiend here couldn’t stop at just that and had to order of their dessert menu, so we went with the Summer Berry Cheesecake Napoleon – Strawberries and blackberries, caramelized puff pastry and whipped cream
No words can describe how delicious this was…the cheesecake was silky, creamy and rich, and with the puff pastry that had a crispy, airy texture to it…together it was an outstanding, delicious combination.
All enjoyed with creamy, rich coffee…
Sunday was pretty low key, hubby had to work again so I enjoyed lunch with my two favorite people, mom and dad. And then we relaxed at home for the rest of the evening. We had to put off watching the season finale of Food Network star but I was spoiled by the winner by a Food Network post on Facebook! How rude! 😦
Although I really wanted Vic Vegas to win I think he deserved it…I think the Sandwich King will have an awesome show and the concept is like nothing on Food Network right now so I like that it’s original. And I’m sure Vic will get a show like every other runner up…hmmm perhaps a duo with Guy Fieri??!!
Since tonight we’re going out dinner and I know myself all too well to know that I won’t want to have to wake up early tomorrow morning to work out…I flip flopped my rest day to tomorrow and took a spin class today. Glad I did too because the instructor was new to me and he played awesome music 🙂
After my spin classes I usually always feel like a smoothie so that’s what I went with…
1 frozen banana
1 scoop Vanilla Casein Protein Powder
1 tsp. xanthan gum
Handful of Peanut Butter Puffins mixed in
Alrighty friends gotta run, today is a busy one so I better be off! Hope you all have a wonderful Monday and I’ll be back tomorrow with a recap of tonights delicious eats, can’t wait! 🙂
