Road Runner

Is it just me, or does everyone become somewhat of a creature of habit?


Lately it seems like my week is spend pounding the books, running errands, and doing things around the house. But lately, come the weekend, I am always hitting the road to go somewhere. Case in point; 3 weekends ago, I went down to Minneapolis for spring break, 2 weekends ago I was down in Minneapolis again for the Kenny Chesney concert (recap here), and this past weekend I spent in Fargo, North Dakota for some girl time and shopping. I actually think this weekend will be spent here being that I am swamped with homework.

The highlight of  last weekend?


Spotting this self-serve frozen yogurt place in Fargo. They just opened and it’s the closest one to me—only 2 hours away!




I got the Red Velvet Cake and the other half Vanilla topped with some strawberries. It was as close to heaven as  you can get!


I also went and saw the Lincoln Lawyer that recently came out in theatres. I am really fussy when it comes to movies, especially when it comes to this genre, but I would no doubt give this five stars! It kept me guessing and the acting was great. I am buying this when it comes out on DVD!

Another trend I’ve been acclimating to lately is cooking/eating in on the weekdays and eating out on the weekends. Does anyone else do this? I find it kind of nice not to have to worry about cleaning up the kitchen and having someone else do the work for a few days. This past weekend I got to hit up one of my favorite buffets, the Golden Corral.

I got a little of everything…

Grilled steak, onions and peppers, broccoli, carrots, baked potato..followed by 2 more plates :-)


I also ate at the Green Mill. Usually I get the chicken parm, but I decided to switch it up this time and get the blackened walleye with a baked potato. It was really good—the red pepper rub definitely made the filet unique and spicy!


In other news, I taught my last cooking class of the spring season last night. It was called “Spring Fling” and featured how to prepare a five course meal highlighting spring produce.

Stay tuned for the recap and recipes from my class Monday!


Do you have a weekend routine lately?

My weekend routine has gone from hockey, hockey, hockey to soccer, soccer, soccer! LOL

That froyo looks SO good!!!

Nicole, RD said...

I think everywhere has froyo but where ever I am...Chicago, Tulsa, Columbus...I've never seen it!

I love that teaching demo kitchen! Swooon!

No weekend routine other than try to recharge for the week ahead. My upcoming routine is: drive to Chicago, and drive back from Chicago. Boo.

Yummy yogurt. I haven't seen that movie but heard lots of good things. We try to only eat out once a week but we have family in town for the next week so that will be tough

so funny - I'm the opposite with meals! I tend to do a lot of cooking on the weekend, but not much at all during the week. :)

Oh goodness that yogurt looks good!

Katecooks said...

Ah you poor thing! Two hour drive to get froyo?? That's dedication. I really want to see that movie. The author who wrote the series that the film is based off of is one of my favorites :)

Ooooh you are so lucky! I have been desperately craving frozen yogurt lately, and I guess I'm going to have to dust off my ice cream maker and make my own. There are not frozen yogurt shops anywhere around here...if there were I'd be there every day, frozen yogurt is a favorite of mine. Love your eats and would love to hear more about your cooking class - sounds fascinating!
