How was your weekend, peeps? Did you do anything fun?
The weather was gorgeous here in Northern California this weekend. Friday was even almost a little too hot for my taste. Skipping spring, is this what we do now? Saturday and Sunday made up for it though – temperatures were in the high 80’s, but there was a light breeze. Perfect! J’s Mom was here and we were able to take adventure of the nice weather and were out and about a lot.
On Saturday morning, I had girls’ brunch planned with Gina, Suki and Donna. We met up at “Bacon & Butter” (OMG – best name for a breakfast place ever, right?) in Midtown. I hadn’t been there before and I am so glad that Gina suggested it. I had some of the best strawberry & rhubarb pancakes I’ve ever had. They came with a bit of a hefty price tag, but portion-size was more then generous and I took some of this home for the next day.
Yesterday morning I finally made it to the big Farmers’ Market again. I hadn’t been there in a while and since I missed the Midtown Farmers Market on Saturday because of the brunch, I am so glad I went yesterday.
I am not sure if I mentioned it, but the European bakery that I’ve been getting my bread from? CLOSED. For good. I had honestly been freaking out a little bit, because HELLO?
I need my bread. Luckily, I found this multi-grain bread at the Farmers Market and I really hope it’ll deliver what it promises from the way it looks (I haven’t tried it yet). We also got artichokes, corn, potatoes and fresh strawberries. Can’t wait for my granola this morning.
