Have you ever wondered what would your ultimate “ME” weekend be like…well I just had one of those. Since March, this was my first weekend home with no mommy obligations [read: it was Kiki’s weekend with her dad] and I had no work travel. I think I forgot what those weekends are like.
It all started with a delightful lunch on Friday at the beach at Sardinia…if you’re looking for authentic Italian food, this is the place to go…firewood pizza is out of this world, but so is tuna and pasta 😉
followed by some shopping – Ann Taylor is having some incredible sales – definitely not to be missed! These babies came home with me!
drinks and dinner with friends at Wynwood Kitchen – as you can see, all of my favorites in one place:
greek salad with grilled octopus
black pepper calamari
sauté brussel sprouts and bacon bits
bread pudding with white chocolate and guava
sleeping in on Saturday, cuddling with the Sous-Chef and catching up with an old friend.
Not sure if the Sous-Chef is missing Kiki or enjoying the peace and quiet….but she took over Kiki’s chair for the weekend!
Sunday was a spa day….hello Miami Spa – deal at the Trump International “trumps” them all [yup, totally non pun intended]
prepared the weekly menu and done some food prep,
and a date with my DVR…is it me or is the summer schedule on USA absolutely incredible?!?! Have you seen Rush, Satisfaction, or Suits? I am in love…yes, guilty of liking the bad boy…no wonder I like all these shows!
And just in case you were wondering what’s on the menu this week…wonder no more…. this week’s menu is completely inspired by all the delicious blogs I read on a daily basis.
Monday: Black Pepper Stir Fried Noodles
Tuesday: Cauliflower “Fried Rice”
Wednesday: Chorizo Sweet Potato Skillet
Thursday: Avocado, Tomato, Corn with Lentil Salad
Friday: Homemade Pizza
Sunday: Pesto Ricotta Pasta
As you can see nothing extraordinary, but it was truly a great “me” weekend! Exactly what the doctor ordered! I am ready for the week, whatever it may bring, but I know something good is coming…stay tuned!!!!me, weekend, weekend lookbook, weekend notes, weekly menu
