Food, Snow, & More Food

Heeeeeeyaa!  How was your weekend?  Mine was pretty darn good.  It’s bound to be a good weekend any time there’s snow in Charlotte.  It only happens once a year, so it’s kind of a big deal.

On Friday, I met Jennifer for dinner at Good Food on Montford.  They weren’t kidding.  It’s daaaaaarn good!  I was really excited for both the girl time and the eats, especially after Jen and Laura gave the restaurant their seal of approval.

We had everything!  ha  We had truffle fries, falafel, and a macadamia nut pie.  She also got quail lettuce wraps (on the left), and I got lamb cheek pappardelle with roast vegetables.  I’m already hungry for more.

As I mentioned, we got a bit of snow Saturday.  I avoided an outdoor run and hit the gym instead.  After a 67-minute spin class (27.3 miles on the bike), I was ready for lunch!  Of course, snow days call for soup and grilled cheese.  (soul-warming food)

Since there was no food left in the house, Kevin and I went out for Italian that evening.  Snow, baked ziti, and a movie = pure romance.  The night *might* have been a bit more romantic had we not watched Planes, Trains, & Automobiles, but it was really funny.

Sunday was the regular food prep day.  (Side note: I wrote a lil’ meal planning post yesterday you may or may not want to read.)  I also cooked duck with orange sauce, rice pilaf, and asparagus.  Yum!

Okay… this was kind of a long post.  Sorry to be so long-winded, but sometimes girl’s gotta lot to say!  Enjoy your week.

    We have had snow flakes falling from the sky, but none sticking on the ground in the D.C. area. I was hoping for at least one snow day this year! I recently discovered that I love falafel. Too bad is not’s that healthy!

    Your homemade dinner looks really good!

    I’m jealous of the snow! It doesn’t snow where I live, ever. But, we usually go up to the mountains a few times a year and it’s pretty bare this year!
