Weekend in review – success!

So, I’m not feeling up to writing some long intro or anything super fancy today – but I couldn’t leave you hanging any longer!  Here’s a weekend in pictures:

After lolla, I headed out to Michigan City for a beach-y weekend.

success: crostini with sugar snap pea ‘hummus’ and homemade ricotta cheese + iced soy chai at the Chesterton french market.

hummus out of sugar snaps?! what? how? delicious.

success: the beach at 5pm, as the sun is starting to set.

if the sky was clear, you'd be able to see the chicago skyline on the horizon here

success: coconut whipped cream topping (vegan!), finally!

I think I just needed to use the right brand of coconut milk for whipping. This is the stuff!

I apologize if this offends anyone. Organic beer can chicken, by the grill master (Dad)

success: 30 mile bike ride through the hills of northern indiana, laporte county.



our route!

success: breakfast today! I went with egg-y banana-y oats. with strawberries and copious amounts of cinna.

failure: dinner tonight.  We went to Hesston Supper club, mostly a meat & seafood place.  I got their heirloom tomato salad, which had tons of blue cheese and bacon – not really my cup of tea.  The I had the vegetarian option which was portobellos, roasted squash & cauliflower, and wild rice.  It was okay, but I could taste the butter on the veggies, the mushrooms were a bit dry, and the rice was slightly overcooked for my taste.  Oh well, not every meal is perfect.

success: the little licorice candies at the host stand of the Hesston restaurant!

Overall, not a bad weekend 🙂

What was one succesful thing for you this weekend?

  1. It must have been beautiful riding your bike along the shore! Coconut whipped cream = divine.

    Success this weekend: driving to the airport to pick up my parents. Sounds lame, but really I’m a terrible driver and that drive involved three different highways and confusing signs. But I’m still alive. Clearly.
