That weekend went by quickly! I am linking up today with Heather, Tanya, and many more here.
Let’s go back to Thursday afternoon when I got my first pedicure of the summer! I chose a color I’ve never done before – a dark teal.
I had fun trying to recreate a street food from Prague with Mason. He went there in 2019 with a school group and we had been talking about trying to make trdelnik. It is a dough that gets wrapped around a cylinder and they cook it at stands in the street. The recipe we found told us to roll up magazines and cover them with foil and suspend them from the edges of a cookie sheet! I don’t think our dough rose enough so I would like to try it again. It gets covered in cinnamon and sugar and sometimes they have a filling.
I started this and I am loving it!
Friday I was supposed to go back to the 18 and over pool with my friend Elizabeth but the weather was not too nice. So, we decided to go out to lunch. We went to a place I had only been to one other time. It is Argentinian inspired I think. It has nods to Argentina, at least.
We sat outside at this cute little table and enjoyed Belgian pommes frites and some white wine before sandwiches and salad.
For dinner Friday night I made everyone a different dish because we were about out of supplies. Tom and Mason had Mexican and Jack had a sandwich and leftover mac and cheese and I had chicken and vegetables.
Saturday I went to the big farmer’s market! It is so nice!
I did not buy these beautiful hydrangeas because mine are below and are doing awesome still! My plant has grown so much and the blooms are peeking out from the fenceline.
I also did a Kroger pick up and I was exhausted by the time I unloaded all of the foods from the farmer’s market and the grocery.
But, then I sat down and watched Pioneer Woman’s daughter’s wedding! It was so pretty! I think Mauricio is so sweet! Anyone watch it?
We were going to take the boat out but it was super windy and the river was quite choppy. After lunch, I ventured out to a shopping center. Versona was disappointing. They have hardly any jewelry anymore. I was looking for a long necklace. Are long necklaces out of style? Francesca’s hardly had any either. I also went into Williams Sonoma and Loft.
Saturday night we had a reservation for our German restaurant. Tom’s birthday was two weeks ago and Father’s Day was last weekend so this was kind of a belated dinner for Tom. It is rather hard to get a reservation for this restaurant!
It is in an unassuming strip mall, but the interior is incredible. I took you to Italy on Friday and now I’m taking you to Germany, right?
The attention to detail is something. I had a glass of house Riesling from the region of Germany of the owner.
I had the vegetarian spatzle. Spatzle is a German noodle. I learned how to make it in Germany in 2000. You have a loose batter that you pour through a sieve into a pot of boiling water.
And, I had some German potato salad served hot.
I didn’t take a photo of Tom and the boys’ foods because they think I’m annoying when I do that. They had pork. Tom had zigeuner schnitzel and the boys both had rahm schnitzel. Everyone loved their food!
Sunday morning I had my coffee with some magazines on the patio and then did cleaning and laundry.
I tried a new combo with my iced coffee. I mixed chocolate and caramel Premier and it was good! I am looking for peanut butter chocolate flavor but have been unsuccessful! It is even out of stock on Amazon until the end of July.
Then, we finally made it to the river this weekend and Tom’s sister and our niece came along. The river was still quite choppy and it was quite windy.
We came home and I made dinner out of German leftovers and a big salad with homemade honey mustard dressing and homemade chicken tenders. We ate as a family and watched Derry Girls!
How was your weekend? I hope it was great!
