Can this post be about all the great food we’ve had in the last 2 days?
Yes? Let’s start on Friday night, our friend’s had us for supper. Eating at their place is always a treat as they are awesome cooks, its just too bad I could not have wine with them all.
Supper was roasted chicken, gravy, wild rice with turmeric, and broccoli in a French cheese sauce.
Sorry for the blurry photo, but had to share it was soo good!
Saturday morning we headed to the Market where we tried a new food truck, Take It And Go. Umm, Red Deer people try this truck!! I have had a few disappointments with another food truck in town so was happy to see a new one. Their prices were really good, and the food was awesome. We tried their loaded hashbrowns and I am already looking forward to trying the french toast balls next week.
We ran errands, did yard work and relaxed the rest of the day until supper time. Then it was time for more food. It was Chad’s Mom’s birthday on Friday so we took them out for supper. We decided to go to a newer Greek restaurant in town, Amphora. I love Greek food so was pretty excited. Of course we had to have calamari to start, then I had the chicken souvlaki wrap for my entree.
HUGE portions! I finished the wrap and most of the salad and nibbled on everything else. I would recommend this place for sure. Two new wins
We were both beat so decided to call it a movie night and rented (yes, we still rent movies) Zero Dark Thirty. I, of course, fell alseep. But from I did see and what Chad said we both thought it was confusing and not really what we thought it’d be like. But a eye opener for sure.
Onto today… weekend recaps are always so long.
A gym trip, which reminded me I never ran last week at all… I have a goal to keep running for another month since I have a 5km run at the end of this month. A brunch Chad picked out, Lighter Strawberry Waffles from Expresso and Cream:
Another win, easy to make and the baked strawberries in the waffles were delicious.
Since the weather was not looking great for the day we decided to go and rent a carpet cleaner and finally clean all our carpets – we have never done it and our house if 6 years old – eek. Chad did 95% of the work. I just helped move things, with the assistance of EZ-Moves – best invention ever, and then put rooms back together. I also made some energy date balls. I love how quick and easy these are to make, and no oven needed. Today I tossed almonds, dates, coconut, chia seeds, dark chocolate, vanilla and cinnamon into the food processor and before I knew it I had this:
Then all you do is form them into balls and keep them in the fridge.
Such a great snack to have ready.
Chad is still working on the carpets so I should probably put away laundry before starting supper.
What was the best thing you ate this weekend?
