Weekend Snippets

5.29.2012

You guys, this weekend was awesome.  In fact, can I request a re-do because I'd like to go back to Friday and do it all over again.  The Boyfriend worked from home on Friday so we "left work early" and met up with friends for happy hour, followed by a tapas date night.


On Saturday, we lounged around in pajamas until about 1pm then headed out to try the first stop on our SF Summer Ice Cream Tour.  (I found this list of San Francisco's Top 5 Ice Cream Shops so naturally The Boyfriend and I decided we're going to try all 5 this summer.  I mean, who wouldn't?)  Our first stop was Humphry Slocombe.  The Boyfriend had Secret Breakfast - bourbon ice cream with corn flakes.  Amazing.  I got Chocolate Smoked Sea Salt.  Heavenly.  I could eat that everyday if it weren't so devilishly rich.

We headed up to Mt. Tamalpais on Sunday for a lovely 6-mile hike, but not before stopping for donuts and coffee at Dynamo Donuts.  If you want to experience true bliss, you have to try the Maple Glazed Bacon Apple.  Just trust me on this one.  I'll try to get a picture of it for you on another visit but there's not really much time between the noms.


And yesterday, we celebrated Memorial Day by hanging out in the garage with our neighbors and eating hot dogs, fruit, and freshly brewed beer.  I have a special place in my heart for good ol' fashioned hot dogs.  I like mine with just mustard, ketchup, and relish.  And I like to really pour it on, too, so when I take a bite the toppings ooze out over the top.  Hot dogs remind me of baseball games, lemonade, and playing on a Slip 'N Slide in my grandma's backyard.  They just scream summer to me.


How was your weekend?  Do you want a re-do, too?

  1. What a freaking awesome food weekend! Unfortunately, mine was filled with more alcohol than food...

  2. Stephanie, this sounds like the perfect weekend! Everything seems spot on.

    Your hot dog comment reminded me of my weekend. I was at my best friend's house and we'd had three bottles of wine between us (yes, this is a classy story) and we were sitting on the couch, eating a toasted baguette with garlic butter smeared all over it, but they way we were holding them made me exclaim "It's just like eating a hot dog!" And then we both fell asleep twenty minutes into the movie. I'd take a re-do if they were being handed out.
