I woke up thinking it was Monday, feeling like it was Wednesday, and figured out it was Tuesday :S hahaha gotta love long weekends!
I hope everyone had a great weekend and did a whole bunch of fantastic things! My weekend started out with a lovely bottle of red wine, pasta, and my love on Friday night (Valentine’s day).
Saturday was not too eventful. Had a great breakfast of an egg white oatmeal pancake with PB and berries. Not unlike the others I have had in the past. After breakfast we headed out to do some grocery/clothes shopping. About $450 later we arrived back home for lunch and headed back out for a lovely walk. Fast forward to a bbq’d trout dinner that was on the table and all of a sudden I had a melt down. I honestly don’t know what happened but I headed upstairs at 7pm fell fast asleep until 7 am the next morning. I hope I don’t come across as a whiney child 😦 It was just one of those time.
Sunday was much better and we celebrated our 6mo wedding anniversary. To kick it off we headed to a SUPER hot yoga class. It was along the lines of Bikrahm but not the same sequence of poses. I think I like regular yoga better. I am not convinced that yoga that hot is healthy. After some coffee and breakfast John and I too a drive out to the scene of the crime (AKA our wedding venue) in Banff. We basically just bummed around the town for lunch and did some shopping. They had some of the greatest sales on their winter items and I came away with a new pair of winter boots and a puffy vest! For lunch we went to Coyotes for some hot soup and sandwiches. That place is the bomb and you must go if you are in Banff. They have the best stuffed french toast for breakfast!
Our day didn’t end then however! We had dinner reservations in Calgary at a new favourite of ours, Cassis. Oh you guys, this is such a great little find and is like stepping into a bistro in France. Their menu is small but everything sounded so tasty and fresh. In the end we decided to start with lamb sausage and beef tartar. Has anyone ever had beef tartar before? This was my fist time and boy was I impressed. At first the raw egg yoke sitting on top turned me off a bit but one bite converted me. It was delicious and their wasn’t a scrapping left at the end. For our mains we both went with the market fish special which was three massive scallops with truffle butter. I LOVE scallops and these were so perfectly cooked and even tasted sweet. To end we had to go for the creme brule. Again, it was a great choice. It was the best day and I can’t wait until our actual anniversary 😉
Monday was a gym day and it felt great to get the heart rate up. John and I both got some cleaning done and had a great slow cooker super thanks to Two Peas In Their Pod . John made their recipe for slow cooker lentil chilli. I highly suggest this if you are looking for a different take on chilli.
And since I wanted to post this yesterday but never got around to it, John and I managed to spend some more dough on getting our guest book framed. For our guest book we decided to have all of our guests sign a map with pens that we provided. It turned out really well and I can’t wait to have it up on the wall 😀
Well that’s it for me. Hopefully I am back tomorrow with a WIAW 🙂
Until then, take care!
1) Are you a traditional food kind of person or will you try different takes on a food?
2) Do you ever get randomly grumpy?
