I am starting a new series of posts on Mondays. I wanted to switch it up a little and give you a peek into what my weekend looks like, whether it be the food I cook, or the restaurants I go to. This weekend was full of delicious food and good times. I hope you enjoy!
Friday was my last day of work before I start my new job this coming week. I made two of my favorite snacks. Buffalo chicken dip and my my bacon queso fresco guac.
Saturday my boyfriend and I had Valentines dinner in. I cooked and we just had a relaxing night at home. I made chocolate covered strawberries and added a little coconut oil in with the dark chocolate to make the shell harder and it added a tiny bit of coconut flavor.
I made a chili garlic shrimp app with crusty bread. So good.
Dinner was a cheesy baked pasta with chorizo and wild mushrooms. It had gruyere, dubliner, parm, porcinis, creminis, portobellos, and chorizo of course. Delish.
Dessert was chocolate mousse and the choc covered strawberries.
And Spanish wine added to the theme of dinner.
His breakfast- eggs with dubliner, bacon, and toast.
Her breakfast- plain Greek yogurt with strawberries, granola, and honey
Sunday we celebrated Valentines day by going out to this awesome restaurant in Baltimore, Fork and Wrench. They had awesome cocktails and wine.
Our entrees were phenomenal. My boyfriend got the seafood dish and it had octopus and these amazing scallops. I got shrimp and grits with this crispy pork and braised kale. Amazing.
We got two desserts because we couldn’t decide. One was a vanilla bean panna cotta with homemade lemon curd, candied lemon peel, and sesame shortbread, and the other was a coconut raspberry zinger cake. Both were fantastic. We both agreed we’d go back there in a minute.
It was a wonderful weekend with amazing food.
Excuse me while I go to visit the treadmill for 17384782 hours.
