What I Ate (This Weekend)


This weekend was beyond beautiful so Alan and I took advantage of the warm weather by putting on our shorts and walking around the lake.

It was definitely an ice cream kinda day so we went for some scoops at Sweet Retreat. My mom and dad used to take me here when I was a wee lass!

The best part about Sweet Retreat is when you ask for one scoop they really give you half a carton’s worth in a cup.

The girl in front of me got the last scoop of rainbow sherbert, so I got caramel butterscotch instead. And then I spent the next 10 minutes marveling at how much ooey gooey delicious caramel managed to be in my ice cream.


That night, to balance out all that ice cream, I made this antipasti salad from my new Food Network crush Claire Robinson. And to balance out the salad, I made this garlic bread. (The best garlic bread recipe ever!) With all this new balance I’ve created, I do believe the world is all in order now.

Today I met up with Irene at The Boiling Crab for some seafood in their legendary sha-bang sauce. It was my first time so Irene had to show me the ropes. We got to squeeze our sauces right on the table. It was super fun, but messy.

Luckily, we got these awesome bibs to help keep ourselves tidy.

Irene and I split a bag of shrimp. The sauce was seriously magic.

Gettin’ down and dirty

Save me!
