Back in the Groove

So, I slacked on blogging. I actually slacked on everything. But that’s what vacation is all about, right? Let’s run through some of the highlights:

The week involved a lot of these:

My mom and I both love Chipotle, and my dad is nice enough to go there even though it’s probably not his favorite 😉

Rice, black beans, peppers & onions, tomato salsa, corn salsa, guacamole & lettuce. That, my friends, is perfection in a bowl.

I also had the best vegan/veggie burger ever at Northstar Cafe:

My friend Kelly and I split it, so you’re looking at just half of the burger & salad. Crazy! My friend Krysta gave me a recipe that is supposed to be similar, so I’ll have to try to recreate this. I’m going to miss Northstar Cafe!!

On Wednesday, I had dinner with my friend and former piano teacher, Christine 🙂 I got to see some of my old students as well! We had a fantastic time, and she made a HUGE table full of vegan food! This quinoa salad was amazing!

Miriam made some amazing vegan zucchini bread. We were all raving about how moist and delicious it was!

I’ll have to hunt down those two recipes, because they are definitely things I want to eat again!!!

Since the weekend isn’t ALL about food, here are some other favorite pictures:

I spent an evening on a rooftop with some friends downtown and the weather was just as perfect as the view!

The weather was beautiful all week, so we also got to take a nice walk in the park!

I should have pictures of the two weddings I went to, but… alas. Those will have to come later, from other people’s cameras!

For now, I’m going to go finish getting caught up on work e-mails! Hope you all had a great weekend!
