This past weekend, I headed home to Osceola to visit Mama V and Pappa V for some swimming, shopping, and lots of eating. We always make tasty things, so I thought I would share.
So, after a car ride on a sunny day, listening to American Gods by Neil Gaiman (currently OBSESSED), I got to my parents house around 5. After some fun floating in the pool (where I was a human submarine!), we headed inside to make some dinner. My mom shares a CSA with one of her friends, and she had TONS of greens to throw into a delicious pasta. She also made these awesome pita pizzas on the side.
It was soooo tasty!
I forgot to take a picture of breakfast, but my dad made a veggie stuffed omelet, and we had fruit and some home made toast (made by Mama V) on the side.
We headed to Memphis after breakfast to do some shopping. My parents are awesome and helped me out by buying me lots of maternity clothes. This baby bump is growing, and I definitely needed some short and tshirts. There was a chain by the mall called Bahama Breeze, which my parents had tried in Florida. So, there's where we headed for lunch. I ordered the curry bowl without chicken, which was filled with tons of veggies, chickpes, rice, and curry sauce. It was tasty, but HUGE. This was the LIGHT portion. I only ate about 1/3 of it and I was done.
We headed home and spent all afternoon in the pool. We got hungry for some grilled food later that afternoon, so we made grilled corn, smoked potatoes, zucchini, jalapeno poppers, beans, and salad. Talk about a feast!
There was still room for pie.....
The next morning we headed to Huddle House, a little diner on the edge of town, to have breakfast before I hit the road. I had eggs, toast, and hash browns. I may have helped my dad with his waffle. I hit the road, listening to Anansi Boys (another Neil Gaiman book... I told you.. obsessed), and got home before noon.
Around 2, Josh and I headed to Flyway Brewing. a new brewery in Argenta. Until Friday, they had just beer and pretzles, so we didn't go try it (me not being able to drink beer and all). However, Friday they launched a food menu, and I spied a tofu banh mi, so we had to go.
I ordered the tofu banh mi and a root beer. They serve Diamond Bear root beer, which is really good.
These juice little sliders were amazing! The tofu was incredibly thick and flavorful, and it was topped with pickled carrots and daikon, with a huge sprig of cilantro. It was amazing. The pickled baby carrots were really good, too. My only complaint is that this was 8 dollars, which seems incredibly high for two little sliders. We were a bit disappointed, but as this is predominantly a brewery and not trying to be a restaurant, I get it.
We spent the rest of the afternoon watching Bond movies, and we had breakfast burritos for a late dinner. I forgot to take a pic. I had to make sure my tummy was full, because I had to fast all morning for my 1 hour glucose test today, which I passed! Yay. My 25 week checkup went great.
That was my weekend. Hope yours was great!
