This weekend was a dehydrating one…because of wine and sports! I’m nursing a headache on this fine Sunday afternoon.
I’m also blogging from the PORCH! It’s so unseasonably warm today that I think all of Cville is in shock. Hope it sticks around!
On Friday night we went out to dinner with Sylvia’s family to Zocalo. Matt and I barely glanced at the menu before ordering – we knew we were getting the fritters, the pepper and either the salmon or the scallops (decided on the salmon!) We just love these entrees, so the thought of getting anything else is scary!
The pigs are now traveling with us places ; )
Saturday morning I had a refreshing bowl of yogurt with bananas and Cville Cluster granola crumbs before heading to the gym. ACAC has added a new 10:30 kettlebell class that is the perfect time for us. What wasn’t great was that it’s held in the tiny cycle studio, so there was barely any space. I got 75% of a good workout and then relaxed in the hot tub for a bit before M and I went on a lunch date!
I gave him a choice of pizza or mac and cheese and his answer was french fries. After a few rounds of questioning, he finally stuck with pizza, so we went to Vita Nova. Pizza covered in spinach is totally a health food in my book! We brought Matt and Jeff, who were brewing beer, slices home.
During naptime, I headed out with some friends to Trump + Blenheim wineries!
Naomi and I split a bottle of the Trump Viognier and a tasting at Blenheim.
Neither of us had dinner plans, so we invited her husband and two girls over for dinner. We picked up the ultimate take-out: Whole Foods! Two rotisserie chickens, kale caesar (LOVE that salad and I want to learn to make it at home!) and sweet potatoes + carrots roasted. More vino = my mistake.
For dessert we all shared an assortment of cookies from their cookie bar. The toffee ones were my fav! A lot of them ended up not tasting as good as they looked. Too crunchy and not enough soft texture!
Sunday morning we had a big family breakfast with some smoked Irish bacon from Babes in the Wood, plus eggs and toast with jam. A nibble of banana too!
Then we all headed to ACAC Adventure Central for my soccer game! Matt and Mazen jumped around in the big play room while I ran back and forth on the court.
I scored a goal and we won!!! Yahoo! M still doesn’t like it when I play – he cries for me when I go from bench to court! Hence the sad face.
We hit up the grocery store on the way back and then heated up leftovers for lunch. I had a chicken thigh and leftover turmeric rice over a baby kale salad with cheese, pecans and orange-flavored olive oil drizzle. Smoked sea salt ended up in there too! Delicious.
We worked around the house in the afternoon, and I made this walnut butter recipe that I’ll be sharing with you guys tomorrow.
We’re making this chicken pot pie for dinner with the leftover rotisserie chicken. Can’t wait for the crust!!
