Just a few things we are remembering from the weekend
Howdy luvs, how was your weekend? We had a blast…okay not everything we did was a blast but we enjoyed every minute with our parents. Lori had a dentist appointment this morning and got a clean bill of health. Speaking of doctor appointments we are in the process of finding a regular doctor to get a basic check-up and maybe some blood work done. You know just to see how we are doing.
We enjoyed homemade goat kefir with lots of cereal
While Gary and our parents enjoyed chocolate chip plantains donuts (the recipe only made 4 donuts, so we happily enjoyed more cereal). And we all enjoyed some fig plantain bread.
Lunch was just as good as breakfast was…
We took our plantain bread and cut it into circles to make buns!! Brilliant idea.
We enjoyed this with spinach and grass-fed beef with avocado, spiralized squash with coconut oil, and local lamb brat.
Amazing cannot even describe it.
We enjoyed dinner out on Saturday at a favorite restaurant of ours in Charlotte – 300 East. If you come visit Charlotte, you must try to eat there. The atmosphere, food, and drinks are all wonderful….and remember to pick us up, haha
We just love how our parents know to never order dessert as they know we always have something waiting at home.
Not sure if this beat the snickerdoodle cake with ice cream or not. But we love chocolate. We love raw cookie dough. Match made in heaven.

Michelle and Jax having a moment…
Sunday we started the day rested and hungry.
*we will share in another post about what work we did over the weekend. we were busy little bees.
Baked plantain pancakes to the rescue. We doubled our baked tahini pancakes with a few tweaks – threw in a banana and did peanut butter instead of tahini. As our parents are not fans of tahini, haha
Perfect with some maple syrup…and lots of coffee!
seeing all this food is making us hungry again
We enjoyed one last meal before the parents left – eggs, spinach, plantain bread, plantain chips, and local sausage.
Jax felt left out
Enjoyed lots of sushi and ginger. A perfect ending to a marvelous weekend. We love fresh ginger, do you?
After enjoying 3 days of bliss and took days off from working out, we woke up Monday ready to go.
Ready to get back on track one day at time.
Sure felt great to work the arms.
Goat yogurt and cinnamon toast crunch for breakfast.
Yep more cereal at lunch with plantain, grass-fed burger, and raw spiralized zucchini with coconut oil and black sea salt. Simple meal full of flavor!
and we are suckers, haha just cannot stop eating cereal. the addiction must stop.
Ended our day with more plantains cooked up with eggs (one raw egg yolk), arugula, coconut oil and raw grated carrots. Loved it!

Twins Question: Do you like going to the dentist? When was the last time you have been to the doctors? Do you like eating out or do you prefer eating in when you have company in town?
till next time,
L and M
