Did everyone have a fun Memorial Day weekend? I had a great time celebrating with friends and family. I also happened to enjoy a ton of delicious eats….the way every Memorial Day holiday should be!
It all started on Saturday afternoon. My mom picked me up from the train station and we headed to Nordstrom to do a bit of shopping and have lunch. I had the Greek Salad.
I also had a cup of tomato basil soup.
Dinner was at one of our favorite restaurants growing up: Steer & Ale. There’s nothing fancy about this place but it brings back so many great memories.
I enjoyed going down memory lane with some wine.
My meal started with a salad. Basic but delicious.
My entree was steak, baked potato and garlic bread.
Breakfast Sunday morning was toast with peanut butter.
My mom and I headed over to my brother’s house for a Memorial Day party. We arrived to a delicious spread of appetizers.
The best part of the day:
The “taco guy”! He was cooking up all sorts of deliciousness for a taco bar!
I tried one of each: beef, chicken and pork. I thought the beef and pork were the best so I went back for one of each of those a bit later.
I brought dessert:
Rice Krispy Treats AND Coco Krispy Treats. Heads up: the Cocoa Krispy Treats were amazing.
After the party I went back with my husband (he had arrived earlier in the day) to our hotel.
Monday morning’s breakfast was a Starbucks latte.
I knew I’d be eating a ton later so I decided to save the calories by skipping breakfast. :)
We went over to my brother in law’s house for the day. More yummy appetizers!
Especially this one:
Goat cheese, fig butter, pecans and cranberries. Holy yum!!
We picked up Woodranch for lunch. I enjoyed some tri tip, chicken, mac & cheese, salad and corn.
I went back for seconds of the tri tip and mac & cheese.
Eventually it was time to drive back to San Diego. I didn’t eat dinner because I was seriously stuffed from my whole weekend of fabulous eats.
Breakfast this morning was a toasted English muffin with peanut butter and strawberries.
After I took the kids to school, I went to spin class. I love starting the week with a great workout.
Lunch was Wahoos with the girls!
So far so good….a great workout and healthy meals. Tuesday is off to a good start!
What was the best thing you ate over the holiday weekend?
