Ahhh Monday, Monday, Monday, and back to the grind for me. My time out of the office had to end at some point I suppose, but I had a great long weekend!
Friday evening I went to happy hour with my friend (it’s turning into a weekly event….) at Shady Grove and got the most delicious salad ever (note the goat cheese), along with a strawberry mojito 😉
Saturday my family came to Pittsburgh to celebrate my birthday (which is technically not until this Friday) and we went out to dinner at a burger place called BRGR. I don’t eat burgers often but sometimes I crave a good burger, and BRGR is known for their delicious burgers. My burger included cheese, bacon, lettuce and avocado..MMMM.
Dinner was followed by presents. I got a crock pot and a blender, just like I had hoped. I was so happy. I already made a meal in the crock pot and am planning on sharing the recipe later this week.
Presents were followed by a delicious almond raspberry cake made by my mother. Seriously…so good.
Aaaaand Saturday evening was once again spent watching Breaking Bad. I swear I’m not usually this hermit-like, but I’m already on season 5 and semi freaking out because Season 6 isn’t on Netflix. Does anyone know where I might be able to find Season 6??
Sunday I went grocery shopping with friends and then did a little meal prep (recipes coming soon). I decided to try a few new items at Trader Joe’s this time…
I know a lot of bloggers raved over pumpkin butter in early October, but I hadn’t tried any until yesterday. Pretty freaking fantastic, just as I imagined. Though some places have already stopped serving pumpkin (cough, Panera, cough) I am not ready to end my pumpkin obsession.
Q: What did you do this weekend? I’ll ask again….any suggestions about finding Breaking Bad season 6? Favorite happy hour beverage?
I seriously love mojitos, they’ve always been one of my favorite alcoholic drinks, though I don’t usually get them unless they are on special.
