Fun Salads, Amazing Bread

The boys were tired on Sunday after a long weekend :) Both Josh...



and Frank...

took naps. I got the house cleaned up a bit, did lots of laundry, and then headed out to Turtle Tracks, a new coffee and gelato shop in Mount Pleasant, to meet my friend Jill.


Turtle tracks is a great little spot! I have yet to try the gelato, but it looks amazing. Although I had consumed more than enough coffee for one day ;), I managed to find room for just one more:



Catching up with Jill was a lot of fun and long overdue. When I got back to the house, I finished up some house work and gave Franky a bath. Then I got started on dinner which I knew would include the INCREDIBLE bread Matt and Kath had brought with them:





I always see Matt's creations on Kath's blog and am jealous of how good they look.....can I just say they taste at least twice as good as they look!! Matt-thank you for this, I can't wait to try the beers and rolls.

My dinner salad included some local roasted squash, peppers, romaine, broccoli and broccoli slaw, pinto beans and salsa:


Josh had a taco salad with a baked tortilla shell, spinach, squash, ground turkey, corn and pinto beans:



The rest of my night included some great TV - Next Food Network Star, Kendra, and Entourage Hope you had a great Sunday.

I saw the word "BREAD" in my Google Reader so I had to rush over. And that's the prettiest taco salad I've ever seen.

Your day was quite similar to the day in my house. The hubby spent most of it napping while I cleaned.:)

That's so nice that you had the chance to try some of the infamous Matt bread! I must admit, I'm a little jealous, it always looks soooo good!

OMG you watch Kendra too? Haha, that show is beyond ridiculous but I love it. It's my guilty little pleasure when I need a good laugh.

Have a wonderful week darling!

Oh how I miss my bulldog now that I moved away--they're truly the best! I have never tried gelato, which I probably should because I am Italian! =)

Alison said...

i am laughing as i read this, because i am about to consume "just one more coffee" haha! and i don't even drink it HOT! sometimes 2 coffees (or more) in a day is just needed!

That bread/sandwich looks amazing, and I've yet to try gelato myself. However, I've heard it's full of deliciousness.

As for Next FN Star, getting down to the final four!

Love catching up with friends!

I loved last nights episode of Food Network - they picked the right person to leave, if he's not comfortable in front of a camera, how can you do a t.v. show??

My pony is still Melissa - I think she'll take it all!

Michelle @ Find Your Balance said...
