BASEBALL!!!!! I’m not at all excited though. I so wish I was going to the Orioles opening day game today against Boston. I’ll definitely be missing my O’s this year but I’m hoping to make it to a good amount of A’s and Giants games. And I’m pretty sure we’re going to spend the weekend at the A’s stadium when they’re playing the Orioles. Cannot wait!
This past weekend was kind of bizarre. I finally caught up on all of my missed sleep [naps were involved.. and quite possibly alcohol-induced] so I’m actually feeling like a real person again. We did have a nice theme going throughout the weekend though.
Yep. We enjoyed our beer this weekend. I had some pretty notable brews too; Tahoe Mountain Brewing Auld Bitch Barleywine, The Rare Barrel Shadows of Their Eyes & Sourtooth Tiger, and Dieu Du Ciel Herbe a Detourne [the Grande Noirceur was awesome too!]
Yesterday morning we went to breakfast. Usually when we go out I’ll opt for eggs benedict because I don’t make that at home but the Cuban breakfast caught my eye.
It was the bomb diggity. Went there. Completely different from anything I’d ever normally order but it totally hit the spot. And the plantains were like dessert! I always forget how much I love plantains. They might pop up again in the kitchen soon..
Weekly Meal Plan
Sunday – Wing it!
Monday – Basil lime chicken with Green Goddess Cauli Rice
Tuesday – Emeril’s Caribbean Chicken and crispy brussels sprouts with creamy dipping sauce [going to change the spices to go with the chicken]
Wednesday – Leftovers
Thursday – Chili chicken and basil stir fry
Friday – Out!
Saturday – Leftovers
I’m starting to get much better about planning out how much we actually need and not planning a recipe for every single night since we do end up with so many leftovers. Practice makes perfect, right? If you’re looking for meal plan help, shoot me an email.
Food for Thought
What’s your favorite sport to watch and/or play?
What’s your favorite breakfast to order when you go out?
So freaking happy baseball is back. Like you, I wish I were at [Phillies] home opener tonight.
Favorite sport to watch: Football & Baseball
Hope your Phillies are doing better than the O’s haha
OMFG that Cuban breakfast looks so perfect!!!! Is it bad that I’m rooting for the O’s even though I live in Boston now? 😛
Never! Always root for the O’s 😉
Oh yum! That breakfast looks amazing. I love plantains too and always forget to make them at home. Mine would probably not be as good anyway.
Plantains are always better in a restaurant.. they’re probably much less healthy 😉
I love baseball too. I’m a Phillies lay but also love my Orioles secondly. Sadly I can’t skip out on work to go to the game today. All those beers look awesome, especially that third one! I love getting something out of your usual when our and having it be awesome!
Enjoy some Orioles for me!
That brunch looks amazing! Yum!
well i don’t really follow baseball much, but i will go eat the food with you! xxoo
Yes! Come visit for the food and wine.. we can skip the baseball 😉
I enjoy baseball, but I don’t follow it really. We have a minor league team here and I really like going to the games. I think it’s a combo of nostalgia from going with my dad as a kid and enjoying being outside.
I think it’s always fun no matter what team you’re watching 🙂
With opening day on Monday baseball season is in full swing here in Cincinnati! I’m not much of a fan but co-workers took the day off to go to opening day. Your menu makes me wish I ate meat…almost 🙂 Yum! And the breakfast looks amazing!
🙂 I see no reason you couldn’t sub tempeh, tofu, or something else for the chicken in those dishes! I think my fave of the week was the basil lime chicken.
