After traveling the past two weekends, I’m so looking forward to being in the city this weekend. Ahhhhhhhhh yes.
It’s been a crazy couple of weeks so in the most lame way possible, I’m excited to do laundry, clean the apartment, maybe even cook a recipe [what?!] and actually go to church here, which hasn’t happened in a few weeks.
Here’s another round of weekly eats based on what I found on my camera, including what I have from our trip to Charlottesville last weekend! It was so so so restful. I got to see so many old friends that are so close to my heart, everyone loved Nick, and we spent a lot of time outside between hiking, vineyards, running and dinners al fresco. I love the city, but that place refreshes my soul.
Have a wonderful weekend! Relax, eating some ice cream, and just soak up this sweet summatime.
lunch // salad with 1/2 avocado, balsamic, tomato and cucumber + Ezekiel with other 1/2 avocado, tomato, fried egg and Cholula + cantaloupe
dinner // I had a final on Wednesday and Nick came over on Tuesday night and brought me dinner that he cooked [I know, I know…he’s the best] This was some sort of sauteed swiss chard with walnuts, zucchini cooked in olive oil, and a kale, ground beef, sweet potato something. It was awesome and I was super grateful.
sea salt caramel and chocolate gelato from Splendora’s in Charlottesville
Chipotle on the way to Charlottesville // rice, lettuce, corn, peppers, pico, chicken and lots of guac and chips
dinner // we cooked stuffed peppers with leftover rice, grassfeed beef, onion and lots of seasonings topped with marinara + kale salad with feta, cranberries and walnuts
chocolate chip coconut cookies topped with mint chocolate chip cookies
part of lunch one day was this kale salad with cucumber, tomato, pepper and avocado
post hike sandwiches from Bellaire Market // turkey, avocado, carrots, lettuce, and tomato + chips
more post dinner ice cream in Charlottesville from Chaps // dulce de leche + chocolate brownie
dinner at Mono Loco in Charlottesville // chicken pollo rice bowl with sweet potato salsa, plantains and other awesomeness + the best margs
lunch on the way back to NYC // Chick-fil-a salad with unpictured waffle fries
dinner Monday night // Brit made chicken gyros with homemade tzatziki, but she has to be gluten free so we ate them in lettuce leaves + quinoa salad….all AMAZING.
So much meal inspiration! I love that your boyfriend cooks healthy food for you! I like Chick-fil-a’s salad, but a few of my husband’s waffle fries must be consumed.
The guys can definitely cook! He cooks way more than I do these days and I’m not mad about it 🙂
Waffle fries….always waffle fries
Your kale salad looks amazing! What did you dress your kale with for the salad with feta, cranberries and walnuts?
What recipe are you making this weekend!? I’m planning to make this for about the 15th time: http://simplylovefood.blog.com/2012/02/25/southwestern-stuffed-peppers/
It’s dressed simply with olive oil and some lemon juice + sea salt!
Ha, I haven’t quite decided yet- something with eggplant that is sitting in my fridge!
Ahhhh, those peppers look amazing.
Have a lovely weekend lady!
The gelato and ice cream look delicious – as does everything else! I’m glad you’ve had a good trip!

have a wonderful weekend lady!
I LOVE all your ice cream pics! Last night as I was eating ice cream from an awesome homemade ice cream place in Jersey, I said to my parent’s, I name this the summer of Ice Cream! Isn’t that what summer is all about enjoying the outdoors and ice cream, so when it it 1 degree outside in the winter we can look back and say we enjoyed the weather and the ice cream? Have a great weekend!
all of these eats look absolutely delicious! now craving a sandwich and lots of avocado 🙂
