We are excited to get moving again, though we have enjoyed the past 3 days off from working out. We are firm believers in giving the body rest when needed. As you can tell from our last few posts we have throughly enjoyed ourselves with having our parents in town. We feel truly blessed to have such amazing parents!! Thanks mom and dad for everything!
After a perfect day Friday, we knew we had to start Saturday off right –> DONUTS… loved by everyone!
We love having guest in town because we love the chance to create yummy recipes like these donuts for everyone to enjoy.
We made two kinds of baked donuts – one as regular sized and others as mini.
And topped them with a caramel sauce and lots of CHOCOLATE! Yes recipe to come!
Bananas are the perfect on-the-go snack!
Lunch was out at the wonderful Terrace Cafe. This was our first time here and loved it.
The vibe inside was so cute and the staff was great. We see ourselves coming back here.
Bacon bloody marys for the table 😉
We both ordered the oven roasted salmon with steamed veggies! The salmon was soo good! It was perfectly cooked.
Saturday night we grilled in. We enjoyed our dinner outside on our deck.
We grilled a variety of fresh fish, along with oven roasted carrots and spiralized zucchini with red cabbage and mushrooms. Along with some avocado, plus a few cocktails.
You guys will love this recipe as it contains very low sugar! We were nervous as they did not look the way we wanted in terms of size, but they sure taste amazing. Especially with cashew frosting (cookbook recipe) and raw cookie dough!
Sunday morning we made everyone our protein english muffins along with some scrambled eggs and beef breakfast sausage sliders. We got the beef from US Wellness meats. First time having them. We admit they were different but we still enjoyed the beef sliders. Everyone loved our oven baked english muffins! Oh yay!
Enjoyed some more coffee out on the deck with our mom.
Michelle enjoying her coffee on the beautiful warm sunny day. Love our coffee talks.
Before heading to the airport we had the pleasure in having one last meal together. It was perfect! We went to The Liberty restaurant and sat outside to enjoy the nice cool sunny day.
Seriously we have been eating like Kings and Queens these past few days. Charlotte has amazing restaurants!
We enjoyed cider! They had some on tap 🙂
Sorry for the messy plates, we forget to snap a picture before we split our meals. We love getting different things and then sharing it. Anyone else do that?
Lori ordered the omelet special (smoked salmon with goat cheese and side of potatoes) and Michelle got the kobe beef brisket with coleslaw. Both dishes were amazing! We all enjoyed our meals.
Due to traveling, the parents and I ordered Carrabas take-out. I enjoyed a salad with garlic spinach and salmon with a tomato basil sauce.
And had to end the perfect weekend with a perfect warm chocolate chip cookie!
And for Lori:
Dinner was some broccoli, grilled salmon, leftover carrots with zucchini and cabbage, and some sautéed kale. Topped with olive oil.
I also enjoyed a lovely warm chocolate chip cookie to end my weekend of pure bliss.
Twins question: Do you like when your parents come to visit? Do you like eating out when guest are in town or do you like to cook?
till next time,
