This weekend…how shall I describe it…perfect, awesome, and cold. Yep, that about sums it up. And Happy belated Valentine’s Day! We kicked off the weekend with a trip to Grit and Grace. Such an awesome restaurant that we would highly recommend. The food was delicious and the service was great! We had a fabulous time. Nick and I are so bad at taking pictures…I need to make that a priority!
Saturday morning was cold and snowy. My Step class was cancelled because the roads weren’t too great. So therefore…a lot of this happened…coffee and snuggles with the animals! I am totally one of those crazy pet lovers, and okay with it! Can you spot Louie! Henry is so desperate for attention. He saw me laying with the cat and naturally came up and laid on top of Louie to get the proper attention! After a few errands, we were stuck in the house all night! It was cold, snowy, and did I mention cold?! I thought it would be fun to do a Fondue night for Valentines Day! I followed this Fondue recipe, it was soooooo good! I think we will def make it again. I surprised Nick with all kinds of goodies. What better way to a boys heart than a cheese and meat plate?! He loved it! I added all sorts of touches…nuts, jams, a bunch of different cheeses, french bread, olives, and a few other goodies!
I opted for some homemade gifts this year! I created a Date night jar! We always are saying we should do this or that but never do….So I saw a bunch of ideas on Pinterest and got creative! I had such a fun time creating the jar! I made the first date, Fondue night! Nick really liked it too! I am excited for some upcoming date ideas!!!
We woke up on Sunday craving French toast!!! Although, I ran out of butter, syrup, and vanilla. But I managed, the french toast turned out yummy!!! I used lots of coconut oil, honey, brown sugar, and pecans! This happened…
After lots of coffee,french toast and an episode of Mad Men, we got ready to venture out into the cold. We headed to the Car Show at the Pittsburgh Convention Center, grocery shopping, and a target run. I ended the day just relaxing and catching up on cleaning/laundry/and other chores!
It was a great weekend that ended too soon! Now onto a busy and fun week!!
What did you do for Valentines Day?! What was your best meal this weekend?!
