Hi there! Hope you’re having a great week. We’re back to work today after a short Spring Break with a few days off for the Easter holiday. So for What I Ate Wednesday I’m sharing some of the food highlights over break.
The first night of Spring Break we made it out with a few friends for Pizza Night at a local restaurant by us, Casey Jones. They offer half price on select pizza’s every Thursday night. I ordered the Veggie and ate one slice of Tom’s Thai Chicken Chili pizza.
Our first full day off we ran some errands including a trip to Hancock Family Farms. We had been wanting to check out the farm and their meat selection for awhile. For those of you local to Southern MD the farm is in La Plata and they sell a wide variety of quality meats and fresh eggs. We purchased steaks, ground beef, and eggs. I love supporting local businesses and can’t wait to go back. When we got home I used the eggs right away to make a little lunch plate of sunny eggs, veggies, avocado, and everything bagel seasoning.
After lunch, I decided to focus on some self-care and took my book to a nail bar for a mani/pedi. Well everyone else was also off work on Friday and the nail salon was insane, I waited nearly 45 minutes because I didn’t have an appointment. But got a new book started, even though I’ve already seen the movie I decided to read The Girl on the Train.
For dinner that night we made Paleo Chicken Tenders, potatoes, and roasted brussels sprouts and I made these Healthier Peanut Butter Eggs for dessert.
Saturday morning I headed into the city to visit my sister for a spin workout at Flywheel followed by brunch. We had been wanting to try Bluestone Lane after drooling over their avocado toast on Instagram. The Australian cafe is located inside the west end public library, they have a variety of coffees and a light brunch menu. The avocado ‘smash’ toast is multi-grain bread with avocado, tomatoes, feta, sunflower sprouts, and I added a poached egg. I ate every bite and it was delicious!
After brunch we walked around a bit enjoying the nice weather outside and stopped for cupcakes from Baked And Wired. I ordered a mix for Tom and I to share, classic vanilla is always one of my favs though.
Later Saturday night once I was home Tom grilled the steak filets from Hancock Family Farms and I made crab cakes and roasted asparagus. The steaks were perfectly tender, totally wishing we discovered Hancock earlier because I don’t think I’ll be buying much meat from the grocery store anymore.
Easter Sunday I had every intention of making us a brunch but we both woke up not too hungry so I opted for my usual shake. Tom and I then walked a few laps around the neighborhood as we were both in need of a rest day from exercise. Then it was time to start getting things together for our Easter dinner (for just the two of us, ha). Tom smoked a turkey and I made a potato salad and baked and decorated a cake. It was a busy day in the kitchen for both us and that’s just the way I like to spend our days off 🙂
Definitely need to work on my Naked Cake skills, but it was fun to make.
And that pretty much sums up all the delicious meals I ate over the long weekend. But before I leave you, don’t forget to enter my most recent giveaway on Instagram.
