This weekend, Melgar, one of my best friends in the world came to Cleveland for a quick visit and to meet FW. We’ve been friends for 20 years, which just boggles my mind. 20 years is a long time!
They got in Thursday night so we started off our Friday with a workout and some brunch!
We spent our Friday with a little mini tour of Cleveland. A trip to the West Side Market, some girly activities and before we knew it, it was time to head home and make dinner. We ended up making homemade pasta and ravioli for our first Friday of Lent – I thought it turned out so good! We made some tomato sauce and made a ricotta, mushroom, onion and spinach filling. Next time I’d add some mozzarella and/or parmesan to the filling as well.
I also got a package in the mail – my newest order from Skirt Sports! I can’t wait to wear these outfits.
Saturday morning started with an amazing brunch at Le Petit Triangle Cafe in Ohio City. We ordered about 6 dishes between the 4 of us and ate it all.
I got the french toast!
Jon kept FW entertained for part of the meal.
During the afternoon, we checked out the West Side Market (again!), the Cleveland Bazaar and did a little more shopping – including buying some popcorn and peanut butter cookies downtown in the 5th Street Arcade.
For dinner, we ended up getting Indian food and again ordered a bazillion menu items. It was SO good but I was SO FULL!
Sunday morning started off early when Melgar had to head back to the airport. With the whole day ahead of us, I started with a 6 mile run on the schedule. While FW napped, I hopped on the treadmill and got in 6.33 total miles.
The rest of the afternoon was pretty lazy and productive. We stopped by an Open House (not interested!), did some meal prep and grocery shopping and caught up on work.
FW and I wore similar color schemes.
AND I played around with the Vitamix. I made my first peanut butter green smoothie AND my first peanut butter in it!
Homemade peanut better = so easy!
The day ended with dinner with B’s family, like usual.FW was.able to get in some quality cousin time.
Some questions for you:
- Have you ever made your own peanut or other nut butter?
- Do you like Indian food? Do you have a go-to order?
