Because I’m trying to lose a few pounds and get in a better general state of physical shape, I spent the entire weekend eating. Naturally.
It started on Friday with making this spicy roasted eggplant marinara. It was fiery. It was delicious. I ate about 5 gallons of it. I’ll share the full recipe and how-to with you tomorrow so you can gain 3 pounds of pure marinara too.
Then on Saturday I, with friend Jen in tow, took a trip to one of my favorite Emerald City establishments for a fix. I was getting jittery from withdrawal. This cuban pork sandwich is my drug of choice. Slow-roasted pork, onions, jalepenos, and garlic mayo? Hello, beautiful.
With our tummies full of pork and with no room for sweets, we decided to embark on a two-stop mini-bakery tour of Seattle. Because let’s face it: when you’re full, there is always room for dessert. Or several desserts. This lemon-merangue tart was completely killer.
But we still needed more sugar. So we hopped on over to a little French bakery and had the most delicious chocolate eclair I’ve ever encountered.
I spent the rest of Saturday recuperating from my overeating extravaganza. And listening to karaoke at a friend’s birthday party. Two guys duetting After All and A Whole New World? This was pretty much the best Saturday of all time.
On Sunday we were fortunate enough to catch up with some dear friends and see their beautiful daughter.
Their beautiful, upside-down daughter.
Whew. What a weekend! I’ve got tons of picture-sorting and blog planning to do—so much to share with you guys.
I hope you had a fantastic weekend too. Happy Monday!
