A Pretty Sweet Weekend

..in more ways than one!

For Nathan and me, birthday celebrations [and most other celebrations..] are centered a lot around food and drink. It was a very nice celebratory weekend, for sure.

It all started on my actual birthday on Thursday.. a quick lunch, post-lunch ice cream, and dinner/drinks out.

The Kombucha Shop Brewing Kit

Here, take my picture in the middle of a tiny sushi restaurant real quick!

Ici Ice Cream

Nothing goes with sushi like a little birthday ice cream.

ØL Beercafe & Bottle Shop

A little post-dinner brew-ski.

Friday we kept it quiet and stayed in in preparation for Saturday.

Perdition Smokehouse Berkeley

An amazingly flavorful bbq & brew lunch [with dessert, obviously.]

Jilly Bean

Skyping with this sweet little nugget! Can’t wait to get my hands on her soon!

Avery Hog Heaven Barleywine

Pre-dinner drinks at Toronado.

NOPA Kitchen

Scoping out the kitchen at NOPA with my new chef friend who likes to pose for pictures.

NOPA Kitchen View

Best seat in the house [in my opinion!] I couldn’t stop watching them cook.

NOPA Salmon Corn Green Beans Trumpet Mushrooms Cherry Tomatoes

A fabulous salmon dish.

Barrel Head Brewhouse Birthday Cake Shots

And capping off the night with a birthday cake shot. At least now I can say I’ve had one…..?

Yesterday was a lazy day full of packing because we’re headed back to Baltimore today!! I can’t wait to get back home and see everyone again. It’s hard to believe that we’ll be there for a week and a half and are having trouble fitting everything in. Need. More. Time! We’re not only going home for more family time, but for our friends’ wedding! We’re both in the wedding and I’m so excited for all of the festivities that are starting on Friday. This is going to be a really fun trip 🙂

And when we get back, I’ll have a gallon of home-brewed kombucha waiting for me! I might need the whole gallon after so many more celebrations at home 😉 I’d say this is a pretty marvelous Monday, yes?

No meal plan this week.. who knows what we’ll be eating?!

Food for Thought

What did you do over the weekend?
Have you ever brewed your own kombucha?
