This post is 90% about food so if you are hungry, don’t like to see boring photos of shit people eat, or hoping to see me eat a vegetable for once this month just move along.
We spent the weekend at Travis’s place in Alabama. Friday night we went to Cheeburger Cheeburger (yes, the ‘s’ is missing) and got our usual salted caramel & cheesecake shake to split. I ordered some of the fried macaroni and cheese to try and LOVED it. Sonic used to have some years ago that they took off the menu after a few months and my life was never quite the same.
I also ordered their veggie burger for the first time with provolone and onion rings on top. Probably the best veggie burger I’ve ever had. I’m always apprehensive to order them at a restaurant since I often get super dry, tasteless patties. Definitely not the case here. I think this may become a weekend fixation anytime we are up here. Oh, and fries with cheese and jalapenos happened.
Saturday morning I went out for a solo 8 mile run. The weather was perfect. It was in the 40’s at night and around 70 during the day. That afternoon we headed into the thriving metropolis of Dothan. It’s the nearest ‘big city’ and we wanted to do some shopping and go out to eat. I never drink coffee or get anything from Starbucks but I love trying whatever Travis orders. He got this salted caramel frappuccino and I can safely say it was the best coffee drink I’ve ever had. You can even see the sea salt on top of the whipped cream! Travis thought it tasted too salty but the camel inside of me totally disagreed. We headed over to Mellow Mushroom for a late dinner (it was like 7 p.m. which is super late for us.) We started off with some pretzels and their mouth-watering beer cheese sauce. I normally order my favorite salad there but I wanted to carb up for my long run on Sunday so I went with a small pizza. Half Holy Shitake and half White Rabbit. I love that our sweet waitress suggested I just get half of each when I told her I couldn’t make up my mind!
Sunday morning we went out for a 16 miler. Travis ended up doing 11, and I hit 15 and felt like calling it a day. I could have done one more but I kind of made up the route as I went along and by the time I got home at 15 miles I certainly didn’t feel like running around the block a few times! We got a late start to the run so I wasn’t home until nearly 11. I decided the best thing I could do was skip breakfast and eat the other half of my pizza from last night. Running makes me do great things like that.We both went into a coma on the couch for a few hours after pizza brunch. Around 2 we finally got up, showered, and went grocery shopping. I felt like having cheese and crackers (with sweet tea) for dinner so that’s what happened. And a cold kitkat bar for dessert. Didn’t I warn you this post would be full of not-quite-the-healthiest food photos? I always feel so weird writing up my weekend posts. I feel like I just do the same things every weekend (because I do) and that it must seem painfully boring to read. I washed my car Saturday for the first time in months. That was exciting. We watched the new movie Neighbors Saturday night. That was not as exciting.
What do most people do on the weekends? Are we average? Or are we missing out on doing ridiculously awesome things?
