Wild Weekend

by on February 11, 2013

Isaac turned 29 on Friday! We celebrated…

Isaacs bday

With a boot full of really good beer (i.e. high alcohol %) at Mekong… totally sane idea, no?

Isaac Mekong Boot

This has become a tradition among our friends when birthdays come around. I made Isaac promise that I don’t have to drink the boot for my birthday this week. I don’t want to get Mekonged! Yes, that has officially become a word at our house. Anyone that has been to Mekong and drank too much will know exactly what I mean…


Sunday brunch at Mezzanine was more low-key. Less beer, more food. I had a house salad with poached eggs and it was super tasty.

Other weekend eats:

lime avocado tarrt

Creamy lime and avocado tart… recipe coming soon for this one.

tofu lettuce wraps

These PF Chang’s lettuce wraps made with tofu instead of chicken. We made a peanut sauce to go on them and they were awesome.

Vigilant eats

I’m trying to give up processed cereal for a while because I have no self control when it comes to eating cereal. Serving sizes on cereal boxes are pretty much a joke. Anyhow, I found this oat-based cereal that is conveniently packaged into single servings and contains only real ingredients and lots of superfoods. Pretty pumped about this little find! I really like the goji-cacao flavor but I can’t wait to try the coconut maple vanilla.

Off to work now! Hope you had a great weekend.

Oh man I cannot wait for the recipe for the tart, looks DELICIOUS. And I am laughing so hard at that pic of Isaac with the boot! Too funny.

Looks like a fun weekend and yes, I TOTALLY understand getting Mekonged ;) Luckily, our house is like a block away from Mekong so we can just stumble home now!

Looks like a fun weekend!! :) I have seen the oat-based cereal on other blogs and I think it looks delicious!! I completely understand having no self control when it comes to munching on cereal…


Brittany Mullins February 11, 2013 at 10:55 pm

I’m glad to hear I’m not the only one.It’s just never filling enough, you know?


Haley @ fullnfit February 11, 2013 at 3:25 pm

Happy birthday to Isaac! The creamy lime avocado tart looks delicious… Looking forward to the recipe and pics from your birthday boot ;)

That cereal sounds awesome – love items that come in convenient single-serving sizes so I can grab them as I’m running out the door for work. What store did you find that at?


Hannah @ CleanEatingVeggieGirl February 11, 2013 at 10:54 pm

Oh my goodness, I cannot wait to make those P.F. Chang’s tofu wraps. I love their lettuce wraps but have never tried them with tofu. It sounds really good!

Happy belated to Isaac and hope you have some fun plans ahead for your bday too!!! P.S. THAT avocado lime tart, just yes!


Sara @ sarasmiles February 12, 2013 at 12:52 pm

I have yet to go to Mekong for the beer, but I hear it is quite an extensive selection! Isaac looks like he was enjoying himself.

And I totally feel ya about the no control with cereal…my friends don’t call me the “cereal monster” for nothing!


Hayley February 12, 2013 at 10:45 pm

I am giving up processed cereal too! I could literally eat the whole box! Good to hear I am not the only one (:


april n. February 13, 2013 at 7:38 am

those vigilant cereals….$5 each!!!! I better stick to cooking my own oatmeal :/


Dana P February 13, 2013 at 5:41 pm

I literally keep checking your website to see if you posted the tart recipe! I LOVVVVE avocado/lime flavors. SO perfect.
Can’t wait to see it!! :)


Brittany Mullins February 13, 2013 at 10:26 pm

Oh no, sorry to keep you waiting. I had all intentions of posting it before Valentine’s Day and then time just slipped away from me. I promise I’ll get it up soon. :)


Dana P February 13, 2013 at 10:29 pm

No worries girl!!! Haha, just wanted to tell you how excited I am for that one! :) Have a great Vday with your man (and pup!!). :)


Shel@PeachyPalate February 14, 2013 at 3:19 am

Puffed spelt is great as you get a huge amount that doesn’t equate to whole lot in terms of weight! Nothing beats a good bowl of whipped oats though! Happy Belated Birthday to Issac! And that avocado lime tart looks and sounds amazing!

LOVE this smoothie. I LOVE Almond Breeze; so yummy! That tart look fabulous too; can’t wait to see the recipe.
Love u!!
