How has your weekend been so far? Ours has been super busy. Saturday morning, I taught Body Step, baked, and then headed to our first holiday meet up with friends at Hominy Grill. Although Hominy Grill is a very well known Charleston restaurant, we had never been there. I loved the sign on the door:
Yes! And they are delicious.
The inside of the restaurant is bright and charming. I started with coffee, which was just OK. The mug was awesome:
Kaylin was on her phone most of breakfast:
You’ll be shocked to know I ordered their granola with yogurt and bananas. This bowl was HUGE! The granola (hidden under the yogurt) was delicious, full of nuts and seeds. The yogurt was plain (vs. vanilla), which I really liked.
Josh got the country breakfast with scrambled eggs, a biscuit, grits, and double cut bacon:
Josh said his breakfast was just ok, but the biscuits were tasty.
Anyone else been to Hominy?
We returned home and I finished up my baking. We headed (briefly) to a kiddo birthday party and then out to my group fitness supper club party. I brought dessert:
Double chocolate chip cookie dough balls, dark chocolate M&Ms, espresso oatmeal chocolate chip cookies (I used 2 teaspoons instant espresso powder instead of the coffee spice), and pretzel treats (pre-heat oven to 350, place pretzels on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper, top each pretzel with one candy melt. Bake for ~3 minutes, remove from oven and immediately press a chocolate chip or M&M on top of melt).
We had such a blast at the party and were very grateful that Josh’s parents and brother could watch Kaylin so we could have some adult time. The ladies (sorry its dark!):
Today, I am cooking a Thanksgiving meal. Josh was sick on Thanksgiving and didn’t eat much. He was totally bummed, so I decided to put together a mini feast. I will tell you about it in my next post (fingers crossed that it turns out!).
oh that dessert plate looks way too good!
Haha, I like how Kaylin was on her phone the whole time.
Sounds like a lovely weekend. I love going out to brunch and your meals and my meals look so similar as opposed to what Josh and Toly would get. We would all be so close. :)
Enjoy the rest of your weekend love!
Hominy seems to be known for breakfast/brunch but their dinner is amazing and affordable!
That restaurant looks great! I love Southern places....and the Christmas tree in the photo looks beautiful:)
My weekend is all about baking.
The holiday orders are coming in.
Kaylin on her phone is precious!!!!
I've never really been blown away by Hominy Grill. It's good, but I think there's much better in Charleston. Looks like y'all had a fun weekend!
Your party platter looks so good. I need to get my Christmas baking started. I hope your Thanksgiving feast turned out great!
OMGOSH KAYLIN ON THE PHONE?! love.

haha typical kaylin taking calls the whole meal. - at least she wasn't on her ipad? hahaha thats an awesome picture and i'll babysit anytime you need adult time! and pretzel candy melts are seriously one of the most underrated things ever
That picture of Kay on the phone is too much. Soon enough that IS what you'll be seeing every day!!!!!!!!!!
Woohoo, bring on the holiday spirit! That restaurant looks great... you love your parfaits :-)
So sweet of you to make Josh a Thanksgiving do-over. Best wife ever!
Kaylin looks adorable on her phone! Can't wait to hear about your mini feast - I'm sure it'll be great!
Ah, how kind of you to make Josh another Thanksgiving meal! I'm sure he'll appreciate it!
First of all, I love Baby K's sweatshirt - snowmen!!! And hooray for some adult time. Hope your mini feast turned out good - I actually bought a couple turkey breasts on sale after turkey day to have later this month - we love turkey!
Seriously! If we lived nearby we'd be connected at the hip ;)
Josh'd b-fast looks tiny!!! But those desserts look amazing. You always bake such great looking treats, Erica!
She is so grown up talking on her phone =) So Cute.

That picture of Kaylin on her phone is priceless. :) Love! Glad you got to try out Hominy Grill and your treats for the party look amazing, as per usual. I need to get on my holiday baking - there is so much I want to make! And how awesome that you made another Thanksgiving meal for Josh. You win wife of the year award!
Aww, you are so sweet to make a mini Thanksgiving meal for the hubs! I'm sure it was amazing. OMG, Kay is so cute on the phone - she actually looks like she's in the middle of a conversation, lol!
Yum, I love the look of that bowl of yogurt/granola/banana deliciousness!
You're so sweet to make Josh a Thanksgiving meal since he was sick. :-)
I went to Hominy a few times when I lived in Charleston-- pretty tasty!!
I know I'm from the south and I'm supposed to like grits, but I'm just not into them.
Kay on the phone...priceless!
