I LOVE the bread basket at Grill 225. It is filled with a variety of breads made in-house. My favorite is the focaccia with tomato:
I ordered off the regular menu and got a mesculen salad & their side pasta (with roasted garlic, fresh basil and olive oil). It is MASSIVE and always results in lots of leftovers ;). The whole chunks of roasted garlic are amazing.
Josh ordered off the restaurant week menu and got a chopped Caesar salad, a 7-oz filet with onion straws:
And the banana bread pudding. We shared the banana bread pudding- SO good.
Saturday morning, I was up early and at the gym. After I got cleaned up, my Mom came down for shopping & lunch. We tried a new spot in Mount Pleasant, Ladles Soups.
The restaurant was SUPER busy (especially for being brand new). They have tons of soups, salads & sandwiches on their menu. AND, if you want one of their soup recipes- you just have to email them!
My Mom and I both got the garden vegetable soup which came with a sunflower seed roll (mmm):
We also split a garden salad. Ladles is an awesome spot! I love that they indicate which of their soups are vegetarian and which are gluten free. I can’t wait to return.
When I got back home, I cleaned up around the house and baked up a batch of my vegan double chocolate pumpkin muffins to bring as a hostess gift for our Group Fitness Holiday party.
Josh and I attended the party Saturday night and had an absolute blast!
What did you do this weekend? Tune in tomorrow for the big announcement!
