^^Apple picking! Because the peaches we went for weren’t ready yet.
Our weekend started with a pool date at Sylvia’s house for lunch. I packed up this salad to take with me – greens, leftover steak, manchego, grilled carrots and zucchini, tomatoes, and caesar dressing.
We went apple picking that afternoon and then had a quiet Friday night in. This dinner was a mix of things from the fridge that turned out quite amazing – grilled zucchini, steamed green beans, fried eggs with cheese and a caprese salad.
Saturday morning I hit up athletic conditioning with Bradley. Hard class! Back at home we did chores and then walked a mile to the IX Art Park where the Charlottesville Music Resource Center was having a fundraiser with blues and BBQ.
I was pumped to see the Smoked BBQ Co cart there!! Best BBQ ever. I had the Three Notch’d bowl, which is layers of mac and cheese, baked beans and pork. I was SO hungry after my workout and the walk there.
It was HOT HOT HOT in the sun. We literally melted.
We listened to music and hung out with some friends for a while before making the hot walk home.
Matt took Mazen over to Sylvia’s house for a sleep over in the afternoon! We trade babysitting with Sarah and John to give each other free date nights, and the Sayas are really into sleep overs these days, so we had the chance to stay out pretty late!
We had dinner at Tempo, which I think is a highly underrated restaurant here! We had exceptional service, and the food was SO good. Love the decor in there too!
To start – avocado bruschetta with pistachios.
I ordered the trout, which was perfectly cooked. Loved all the veggies that came with it too! Matt was still full of BBQ (he ate his whole plate and 1/3 of mine at lunch) so he just got a shrimp appetizer and helped me with my fish.
We also shared these amazing grits!
Our next stop was Brookville where we had a few cocktails, and then we went to Blue Light and met up with Allie, who was in town visiting! It was a late night out – but super fun!
We went to pick up our sweet kiddo in the morning and had a fun family day at home. Hope you had a good weekend!
