Hi Foodie Friends!
As this 3 day weekend comes to a close, I wanted to recap some of my food and non-food adventures! I started my weekend off with a Happy Hour at Dutch’s in Hyde Park. I was craving a patio with a cold drink in my hand. Plus, since it was National Wine Day I had to participate! I opted for a Rose, which was on happy hour special. Win- win! I also, watched the Cavs game and thank goodness they won that game and actually looked decent! Any Cleveland fans out there??
On Saturday, I of course got my sweat on at Body Alive taking a spin class and then I stopped at guess where?! Yep, Trader Joe’s! I picked up some ingredients for a few dishes I wanted to prep for the week ahead. Some staples I typically always grab are: frozen cauliflower rice, tofu, tempeh, soy chorizo, peanut butter, almond milk, and yogurt! I headed to Taste of Cincinnati in the afternoon and it was a Foodie’s dream! So many food and drink options. Only downside was it was a little too hot, so we didn’t last as long as I wanted to. Our backup plan?? Bakersfield for their cucumber marg, fresh tacos, and chips and salsa + guac. Yum!
After all the food and drink adventures on Saturday, I started my Sunday with a nice 4 mile run outside before it got too hot! I was able to throw together a super simple summer appetizer: Grilled zucchini and caprese bites. You’ll find my recipe on my instagram post! They totally hit the spot and tasted so fresh. I don’t know about you, but you just can’t beat fresh basil!I checked out a new restaurant in the Banks, Condado’s Taco and it did not disappoint. I opted for the taco bowl with their tofu and all the toppings. If you’re not a big taco fan, go for the cool artwork and fun atmosphere.
I ended my long weekend with a pool day with my family and it was so relaxing! I caught up on the newest Food Network Magazine and just enjoyed being outside! Can’t beat a weekend spent with family, friends, and good food!
Until next time,
