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?
