Belated Weekend Recap

I know that weekend recaps usually occur on Mondays, but this one is a little behind.  I really wanted to post my new workout the very same day I started it. 

As you probably know, Kevin and I hosted company this weekend.  I didn’t get to try any of our visitor’s home brews, but he left a few for Kevin and I in the fridge.  Yawhooo!  If you all ready Saturday’s post, you know there’s another timebomb in my fridge.  It’s crazy, but I didn’t get into that either even though it’s my favorite beer.

So what did I do?  I’ll show you through a lens.  Naturally, the pics focus on the food and drink of the weekend, but I don’t think you really want pictures of me grocery shopping and cleaning my house.  Didn’t think so…

On Saturday, we went here:

brewery

The local brewery also offers some food in their taproom, so the guys ate lunch there.  I, on the other hand, checked the menu online before we left and saw no healthy options, so I enjoyed a pb n’ jelly sandwich on the way.

The guys got one of these.  Normally I’d be jealous, but I was happy with my brew.

I was driving, so my portions were more like this.

On the way home, we stopped by here and got these.  I’m not even a fan of buffalo blue cheese chips, but I had a couple anyway.  Fail.

We stopped by a beer store on the way home, and Kevin picked up a six pack.  I wanted a pack of non-alcoholic beer, but the shop didn’t have any that was cold.  Bummer.  I stuck to water until dinner.

Speaking of dinner – the picture says it all.

I ate TJs raisin bran for breakfast with almond milk and black coffee.  I cleaned all day, except for when I took a trip to TJs.  My body was tired, and my feet were hurting!

Kevin and I both had grilled eggplant, grilled onion, spinach, and hummus pressed in a wrap for lunch.  (Not Pictured)  It was so tasty I made mini ones after without the wrap.  Aren’t they cute!?!

For dinner, I made scallops for the first time.  Scallops, grilled eggplant, red onion, orange bell pepper, and of course, olive oil.  It was totally fusion and totally rockin.  I served Kevin brown rice with his.  Oh, and we split a mango for an appetizer.

Have you made up any odd/unique/fusion meals lately?

Oh, and just because there isn’t another giveaway going on right now doesn’t mean you can’t follow me anyway.  Find me @LoveSweatBeers!

Now, I bet you’re expecting a review of one of the products, right???  I’m sorry to disappoint, but that’s not going to happen, at least not today.  I tried to use my free spread/dip coupon, but the grocery store near me who used to carry the goods has quit ordering them.  I guess I could go online and order some, but that isn’t exactly in the budget.  You have to pay for expedited shipping and cold packs, plus I don’t think I’d be able to use my coupon.  ::insert sad face here::

What’s a girl to do when she has a sad face?  Why, eat ice cream and play with kitties of course!  Check out my ice cream from TJ’s.  It’s delicious, but it’s so small that I think I’m more hungry after I eat it!

What’s your favorite cheese alternative?  Is it homemade or pre-packaged like WayFare’s goodies?
