Diehard Foodie Finds + Weekend Recap

Happy Memorial day my foodies! I hope you are all having a fantastic, long weekend. I am officially off work for the next week and a half, and soaking up every minute of it. My sister and brother in law came to town for the weekend, and we had SO much fun! On Friday we had dinner after work at a delicious farm to table pizzeria in Safety Harbor (an adorable small town right beside us in Clearwater). After dinner, we walked to a wine bar and enjoyed a couple glasses of wine while catching up. On Saturday morning, I took Kat to my yoga studio while the boys played disc golf. After getting some movement in for the day, we went to Dunedin (another adorable small beach town in Tampa Bay). We ate at the Dunedin Brewery, one of our favorite restaurants and breweries, and afterwards took Porter with us to Honeymoon Island for a day on the beach. I cooked up a delicious meal Saturday night, featuring my coconut butter salmon (recipe will be on the blog this week!), sauteed zucchini and peppers and gouda grits. SO delish! On Sunday, I cooked us a big breakfast before we headed to Tampa for the day. We did a brew bus tour, which took us to all the local breweries in Ybor City. We are all craft beer enthusiasts and had so much fun sampling beers! The winner was Angry Chair's hazelnut and coffee porter. It was AMAZING.

I cannot believe the weekend is already over, and I am so sad they are already gone. Now its time to pack and get ready for Puerto Rico and Colorado. Nick and I have three weddings in the next two weeks to attend, I cannot wait to see so many of our friends!
