Scenes from the weekend

This weekend went by far too quickly, just like last week.  Beh.

Saturday I recreated one of our favorite dishes from Charleston's Brown Dog Deli, the mesquite turkey croissant.  It was so yummy!  The only real change I made was using pineapple mango jelly.  I also made some homemade mac and cheese from Hominy Grill.  So it was a Charleston celebration all around.

We went to the farmers market and then perused an antique store where I found this baby and wished we had room for it somewhere.

We chuckled when we saw this at the sporting goods store...

Took us right back to 1992 and our first camping trip together.  We bought some of that and I threw a sh*tload of it on the fire because I'm impatient.  Every year, we'd have "butane chicken."  I can only imagine what it did to our insides.

Another thing that made us laugh was this gem from Trader Joe's.

Before we knew it, it was Sunday and once all of the grocery runs were done as well as a little shopping, it was later than I wanted to get started working out.  But we did.  We did ATLETICA by Powerstrike with light weights and as usual, it kicked our butts.

The only way to recover was healthy doses of protein and vitamin A from the grill.

Just like that it was time to plan the meals for the week, get in a little DVR viewing after having finished the Six Feet Under (affiliate link) finale Saturday night.  My eyes weren't quite as bagel-esque as I thought they'd be so that was a plus.

I've got a house to clean and plans to get in order for the week so I suppose I should get to it.  Sigh.

What did you get into this weekend?

  1. Yes, the weekend again went by way too fast. Grocery weekends are the worst for that too because the time we do get has to be spent shopping. But then we do get a lot of great meals out of that stuff so it's all worth it - especially for meals like what you made this weekend. Broke da mouth!

  2. Sounds like a really lovely weekend. Mine was good with a meeting and running a few errands are getting all the laundry done. Way too humid to be outside very much, but it's much better today with a strong breeze, so I'm happier with that. Finished a really good book I'd had sitting around here for a couple of months and just ordered a few more. Busy week this week with different commitments so trying to keep it Zen. =o)
