Weekend Eats 2-18-13

Hello, hello! It’s been a little while and a lot has happened in the past few days so let’s catch up.

I hope everyone had a great Valentine’s Day. I did. It was amazing, maybe even the best ever. If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram, you may have seen I was surprised on my lunchbreak on Thursday when I came home to box of a dozen Cupcake cupcakes from Greg.

I could not have been more excited. Thankfully I had some family in town this weekend to help me eat them all. I loved every bite, but I am also glad they are gone now. I had plenty. My favorite flavor always seems to change with these, but this time around I was loving the Cookies and Cream. 
Another thing that made my Valentine’s Day so great was the Rascal Flatts concert! Greg got me tickets for my birthday, which conveniently served dual purpose for Valentine’s too. Rascal Flatts put on an amazing show. Our seats were about four rows back from the stage, which didn’t hurt either 😉
The weekend brought lunch at Black Bean Co. on Friday. 
And a dinner date with Greg on Friday night at Sesame. We started with the pimento cheese appetizer. 
I had the Napa Valley Black Bean Burger (in a bowl) – fig and bacon jam, bleu cheese, and a red wine reduction. 
Yes, it was as delicious as it sounds. And the patty was enormous, making for great leftovers the next day. 
On Sunday, I took my family to Triangle for brunch after church. It was PACKED. Greg and I go here often for Sunday brunch, and I haven’t seen in that crowded in a longggg time. It was worth the extra wait for our table and our food. Sipping on $1 mimosas helps pass the time waiting. 
I had blueberry pancakes that I scarfed down before getting a picture. You can say they were mighty delicious. 
My weekend ended after saying goodbye to my family and making a simple meal at home consisting of a vegetable medley (chopped portabella mushroom cap, broccoli, onion, sun-dried tomato, chipotle sauce, shredded cheese), and a couple slices of a garlic herb baguette. 
What was the tastiest thing you ate this weekend?

  1. Go, Greg, GO! What an awesome fiance. We are twin eaters. I love everywhere you ate. I LOVE the black bean burgers at Sesame…and I always get the Napa Valley style on my turkey burgers. Delish!


  2. So your blog is making me super hungry today, I also live in Charleston and now I *know* I am getting that black bean burger on the salad the next time I go to Sesame. We like Triangle and Black Bean too but I haven't been to the Cupcake store yet. But I will say if your significant other gets you a box of cupcakes from there for V-Day he is definitely a keeper, they look delicious!


  3. Just had a black-bean burger with avocado last night at TGIF's…Yummy! Fruit/yogurt slushes replacing sweets during lent. Still the good life! 🙂
