Wow-wee! What a weekend! I sort of wish that I could relive the whole thing. It was such a blast from beginning to end!
This morning, Mal and I slept in until about 8:30 and then headed downstairs to grab breakfast at the hotel restaurant.
To be honest, I didn’t have high expectations for breakfast after reading the menu, but I was pleasantly surprised when my meal was served. I ordered the fried egg sandwich, which came with homefries on the side.
The egg sandwich was served with bacon, roasted tomato, and plenty of cheddar cheese. The sandwich was massive, so I ended up removing the bacon and one of the eggs (there were 2!), but, somehow, I still managed to eat practically all of it! It was THAT good– especially the greasy, grilled sourdough bread with loads of cheese. 😉
Breakfast held me over for hours and hours, so when lunchtime rolled around, I just made myself a small snack: two pieces of toasted Carrots Raisin Manna Bread with butter smeared on top.
When the Manna Bread folks asked me to sample some of their breads, I jumped at the chance. They had some many delicious-sounding varities: Carrots Raisin, Banana Walnut Hemp, Fig Fennel Flax, and Cinnamon Date. Mmm! Plus, the website describes their breads as “moist, delicious, cake-like…and simply heavenly!” Um, yes, I would like to try some Manna Bread!
The Carrot Raisin Manna Bread tasted just like a carrot raisin muffin– same texture, consistency, flavor. It was basically muffin bread. Delish!
After my indulgent weekend (week, month?), I kept dinner light with a big salad, topped with canned salmon and balsamic vinegar.
Raw veggies never tasted so good!
For dessert, I enjoyed a few caramels from the candy bowl.
It’s Sunday Movie Night, so Mal and I have plans to get into our PJ’s, chill on the couch, and watch our newest Netflix DVD: The Men Who Stare at Goats. Sounds like an interesting movie, right?!? (I think it might be time for me to take over our Netflix queue.)
Enjoy the last few hours of your weekend! Back to the grind tomorrow!
