This is my 300th post! A huge milestone, following shortly after my one year blogiversary! To celebrate, I’m baking for you guys again. Read to the end of the post!
We just arrived back in Charlotte from our visit with my family. I’ve been busy tonight planning for tomorrow morning’s yoga class and cooking for our Easter lunch with Brandon’s family. More details on that later but first I want to catch you up on the rest of our visit to Georgia. Read part one here.
I have to share Friday night’s dinner. It was incredible!
My dad is an amazing cook (he is the one who created my love for cooking) and prepared a delicious feast for us last night – roasted cauliflower, grilled Chilean sea bass on the Big Green Egg and steamed rice. We also had crusty bread with real butter. Mmm…
Not to be outdone, my mom made a strawberry custard pie for dessert.
Speaking of strawberry desserts, I finally posted the recipe for the strawberry crisp on Bakin’ and Eggs. Make it!!!
By popular request, I made overnight French toast for breakfast.
It seems like we’ve had French toast every weekend for breakfast lately. I don’t know where this trend is coming from but I will go with it because French toast makes for a tasty weekend breakfast!
After breakfast I headed out for a run. I ended up covering five miles around town. It was an easy, effortless run. Love those!
Meet Sam. My parents recently adopted a golden retriever from the Adopt A Golden rescue in Atlanta. I finally got to meet him this weekend. He is 5-6 years old and a total sweetie.
He spent the majority of the weekend begging for attention and pats. You would never know that he hasn’t lived with my parents his whole life. Golden retrievers really are the sweetest, loyal and family oriented dogs. I am so happy that Sam has a good home now!
Lunch was chicken salad, pimento cheese, pickled asparagus and fresh fruit. I’ve had a ton of fruit the last couple days. A huge thank you to my grandmother for stocking up!
Family pics before hitting the road!
It was so nice to see my family this weekend! It’s crazy how hard a four-hour drive makes it to see them more regularly. I’m just happy that they are within driving distance because that hasn’t always been the case.
And finally…in celebration of my 300th post, I’m baking for you again.
Here’s how to enter…just tell me ONE GOAL that you want to achieve in the next 300 DAYS. (It does not have to be fitness related – it can be anything!) . I will pick a winner Monday evening and ship you a package of freshly baked bars via Priority Mail this week!
