Weekend Eats

I feel like I’ve had a lot of good food recently and need to share!

Starting off with breakfast – I haven’t only been eating overnight oats for breakfast. Since it’s fall, the cooler mornings make me want something warmer, like regular oats! So I had cooked oats with PB & J. Yummm 🙂

In my Chi-town mug : )

I have been mixing chia seeds into my oats when I cook them, and I’ve noticed a change in the texture {for the better!}.

Then dinner on Friday night was at b.good, a “fast food” burger joint that uses fresh ingredients and is made by people, not factories. I ordered the Avocado and Orange salad with grilled chicken, and a side of sweet potato fries. This meal was heavenly. The goat cheese on the salad was so fresh and flavorful, the avocado had just been sliced, and the chicken was straight off the grill. The fries were warm and crispy, with a chewy middle. My mouth is watering from looking at this picture.

Saturday night, I got a text from my friend Emily asking if I wanted to grab dinner at the Pour House, a pub right down the street. They have half price burgers on Saturday nights, so I got a {veggie} burger with blue cheese. AH-MAY-ZING. Seriously. And I got a tall beer for a total of…. 12 bucks!! Good deal, I’d say! No pic of the burger, and I only thought to take a picture once I was already done with my beer.

The atmosphere was very cool, though. A lot of college kids, loud music, fast-paced and busy. It was fun! We had a good time talking yelling over the music and catching up 🙂

I know what you’re thinking… I did go out to eat more than I should have this weekend, so here comes a week of frugality. Also, I just signed up for Starbucks Rewards… am I the last Starbucks customer EVER to do this?! It seems to me I will save quite a bit – my soy misto order is pricey, but with the rewards I can save 60 cents every time I get one {after I use my registered card 5 times}! I’m mad at myself for not doing this earlier. I probably would have saved hundreds…. oops!


Right Now

I definitely go through phases of different obsessions/addictions – whatever you prefer to call them. I never know how long they will last, but what I do know is that I will always have something to obsess over. Here are some of the things I am into right now.

1. Oatmeal – This is something that has come back around for me. I was in a greek yogurt-for-breakfast phase for a long time, but now nothing sounds better than oatmeal.

Starbuck’s Perfect Oatmeal – with my own banana and scoop of pb 🙂

2. Chevron stripes – if you haven’t noticed, I have had various posts over the past couple weeks with chevron included in some way. (Here and here). Can’t get enough!

3. Elbow patches – now that it is time to start looking for back to school clothes, I’ve noticed elbow patches are still present in the fashion world. Gap has some great options for fall.

What are you obsessing over right now?
