Good Morning and Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend!
I had a great weekend filled with some great food that I can’t wait to tell you all about. I’m going to keep this intro short because I just want to get to it! Linking up with Katie for Marvelous in my Monday and Erin for Weekend Snapshots!
I was off on Friday so I headed back to my hometown for a few different reasons. I needed to pick up prescriptions, a few more things from my dad’s, and to see my sister. It was a beautiful day to be driving!My sister and I went out to supper at our favourite restaurant/cafe and I had one of the best meals! I ordered one of the specials which means I was able to have a starter. I decided on the falafels to start and they were delicious!My main was a butternut squash and goat cheese pizza! I’ve never had something like this before and I was surprised by how much I loved it. I took one bite and I was in heaven!And you can’t go out for supper and not get dessert! This cafe makes the best dessert crepes so I went with the special one of the week which was peanut butter cookie dough! Holy cow it was good!The rest of the evening was spent relaxing and going to bed early which is my kind of night (you know you’re old when).
I woke up Saturday excited since I was going to be heading to the market. I had one booth on my mind, but also wanted to check out one of my regulars. I stopped at the booth I almost always go to which is a raw food booth. They had a couple new things so I decided to try a chocolate peanut butter fudge and some kind of peppermint square. I meant to write down the names to include, but obviously was too focused on the food (what else is new).I haven’t tried the peppermint square yet, but the fudge is pretty tasty!
My next stop was what I was looking forward to 🍩! My friend had invited me to like a page on Facebook a few weeks ago for a new vendor, a donut vendor at my local market! There’s never been one from what I can remember so I needed to check this one out! She only makes two kinds a week and I saw this week she was making salted caramel so I knew I had to get one! For those that don’t know, salted caramel is my jam! I had this baby on my way back to where I live now as my pre-workout and it did wonderful things for my workout! I had a really great chest and triceps workout before doing a little HIIT circuit that I made up. The circuit made me realize that I really need to up my cardio game which is something I’ve been wanting to work on!
I did all of this and was back home by 11:30 AM! I spent the afternoon doing some meal prep and helping my mom make healthier banana bread muffins!These were some of the best homemade bananas I’ve ever made and am thinking about posting the recipe on here at some point (let me know if you’re interested in that)! I probably had three or four throughout the afternoon and evening with some butter because if you’re eating banana bread without butter or peanut butter you’re doing it wrong (in my opinion anyways)!
Nothing too exciting happened on Sunday since I worked 6:45-1:30, worked out, had a staff meeting, then came home to relax. I have been going to bed nice and early (like 9-9:30) the past three nights which has been absolutely wonderful, but that’s not exciting.
That was my weekend in a nutshell! As I’m finishing this, it’s 5:37 AM and I need to get my butt going so I can make it to the gym by 6:30!
Have a great start to your week!
What’s your favourite kind of donut?
