Weekend Recap: 10/8/16

Most mornings it’s plain coffee at home, some mornings it’s Hindsight or Alchemy (because treat yo self), and some weekends you get a late start and need coffee pronto so it’s back to plain coffee again. One thing remains the same, always take a picture. Picture or it didn’t happen 🙂


Cyn Shea’s has been highly recommended to us by my mother-in-law for some time now, and we finally got around to going last Saturday. Holy moly, why didn’t we go sooner is all that comes to mind. Everything on the menu was very reasonably priced so I was assuming that meant smaller portions. If you’ve seen Allen, you’d think he eats little to nothing, but have it be known, he eats more than anyone I know. Anyway, I ordered cranberry orange French toast, which is made using their own house-made bread. Allen opted for the breakfast tacos. When the food came out, I couldn’t get over how PRETTY it looked, which makes our job of getting a picture for you guys super easy! Everything tasted so amazing it’s going to be difficult to try something new next time we go, although the apple turkey sandwich is calling my name.

Afterwards, we headed up to Green Mountain, a favorite spot of ours. We recently collaborated with Humm Kombucha who asked if we would be interested in taking some pictures of their kombucha as our lifestyle of nature, outdoors, and hiking fit well into their brand. I discovered the Oregon-based brand a few weeks ago during a trip to my favorite store, Target, and we’ve been hooked ever since. My favorite was the Apple Sass, which completely tastes like fall. If you’re looking for a healthy alternative to a pumpkin spice latte (without the coffee of course) or sugary cider, this is it! The apple, spice, and ginger flavors can be detected very clearly, especially the ginger which I’m assuming is where it got its name “Sass” from. All of the other kombucha flavors taste exactly like the names as well. You know how sometimes things have different flavors and names, but they all start to taste the same and you can’t tell one from the next? Not these. Pomegranate lemonade tastes exactly like pomegranate and the tart taste of lemon. Allen’s favorite.

Saturday night we were craving burgers. There’s one place that comes to mind when I want a burger, and that’s Farm Burger. Yes, it’s pricey for a burger, but you get what you pay for. We also decided to get the daily combo, which includes fries (regular, not sweet potato) and a drink all for $10. That’s the way to go, and we got lucky because the burger was INCREDIBLE! Saturday’s daily combo was a pork burger topped with pimento cheese, shredded lettuce, chili (yes, there was actual chili on this burger), grilled red onions, and mustard with chili mayo. Whew! To be honest, I wish this was a permanent menu item, because I’m already craving  it again. If the daily combo doesn’t appeal to you that day, I highly recommend the no. 5 and the no. 6.

Sunday morning is always a debate about whether we want to eat breakfast/brunch at home or go out to eat. We typically go with the latter, which then brings in the ultimate debate of where do we eat? You know how it goes, you go back and forth with one another, “I don’t know, where do you want to eat”, “I don’t care, you choose”. This is where you thank your mother-in-law for suggesting a place, and we all agree and say yes, let’s go there! I’ve been to Bonefish Grill several times for lunch and dinner, but I had no idea they served Sunday brunch. I was planning to get the Bang Bang Tacos (because hello, Bang Bang Shrimp) until I saw they have Bang Bang Shrimp Benedict. Game changer. I’m always looking for unique twists on classic Eggs Benedict, and this hit the spot. We are definitely adding Bonefish Grill into our brunch rotation.
