WIAW #26: Sundaes on Saturday

Happy What I Ate Wednesday, folks. It’s one of my favorite days of the week – seeing all the great eats that everyone has to share, plus sharing my own. AND today’s is an especially fun day of eats, because it was my SATURDAY eats. Which meant ice cream, kombucha, popcorn and more fun stuff. Are you ready?

The day started out with a nice 5k with B and myself. After the run, it started to get hot off and I was craving some fruit and something fresh. The cure? We stopped off at one of my favorite downtown breakfast spots, Restore for some avocado toast, a smoothie AND an acai bowl. Don’t worry, we split the three between us:

After breakfast, we headed to the West Side Market to pick up groceries. I was still feeling in the mood for fruit so I grabbed this bad boy and some grapes to snack on during the day:

After the Market, we headed out to Hingetown, where B got coffee and I got – you guessed it – kombucha at Cleveland Tea Revival. I can’t get enough of this stuff!20150718_105202

We had a relatively lazy afternoon after that and ended up going out to dinner, to the movies, and then out for dessert.

We had a gift card to Town Hall and enjoyed an appetizer of lettuce wraps (sorry, forgot to take a photo before … you can see some remnants below).

And I got this massive kale, beet, goat cheese, almond and veggie burger salad for dinner. I ate leftovers for 2 days 🙂

We then headed to the movies and saw Trainwreck. B got popcorn, and I had a few handfuls. NO – I did not take any pictures during the movie 🙂 But AFTER the movie, we went out for ice cream. Holy cow, was this  sundae delicious. Salted caramel ice cream with toffee bits and a bit of B’s whipped cream and cherry. I had a long run planned for Sunday morning, so of course I had to count this as part of my cargo-loading 🙂

That concluded my Saturday. Wow, looking at this, I want to go back! So much good eats in one day!

Some questions for you:

  1. Do you tend to splurge more on weekends?
  2. Do you like sweet/salty combo? Yes! Salted caramel ice cream – chocolate covered pretzels – i want it all!
  3. Have you seen Trainwreck? What did you think?
  4. Runners – do you have any go-to eats the night/day before a long run?

  1. That acai bowl is making me all sorts of jealous! I definitely eat a lot larger meals on the weekend. I usually make every single meal/item I eat during the week so going out on the weekends always sounds perfect to me : ) Just like you alllll about that chocolate pretzels… and Trader Joes sea salt chocolate covered caramel… omg.

  2. It’s so random but I like how you say you forgot to take a picture of your appetizer. That goes to show you had your priorities right: focus on enjoying the time with your husband rather than needing to get a picture for the blog.
    Everything you ate looks so good. I’m not a salad person – bad vegetarian, I know 😉 – but even that is appealing to me.

  3. That salad and the huge knobs of goat cheese looks insane!
    I do tend to splurge a little on the weekend, especially because I tend to eat the same types of things each day and we are usually eating out. I like the change of pace and I’m usually ready to get back to my weekday eats come Sunday night. 🙂
