Weekend recap, short but sweet!

Well I attempted to take pictures of my eats this weekend, but Saturday my throat started to hurt and I slept most of Sunday. While I managed to eat, I don't want to stress about catching up with a long post tonight, plus I missed pictures of a lot of meals. So tonight I'll have a post summarizing today. This sums up a little of the weekend!

Saturday night Steve and I met another couple at the Melting Pot (wish I had pictures). The vegetarian entree was pretty yummy (but not really sure it is worth the price). I haven't been to the Melting Pot for 3 years, so it was really fun even if it is super expensive. I was so full from dinner that sadly we didn't even get the chocolate fondue! I told Steve that I want to come back soon just for dessert, because we passed it up this time.

Sunday night, Steve woke me up from my benadryl induced slumber to tell me we had to leave for his family's dinner at Joe's Crab Shack. So no pictures because all I had was unsweetened iced tea. But I do feel like ranting about Joe's Crab Shack. I add a disclaimer that I was sick when I went here last night and maybe wouldn't have eaten anything either way, I couldn't believe that the only vegetarian option was a small house salad. I even called ahead last week when I heard we were going here and the girl said "well we have a salad." Normally I do just get a house salad and baked potato if that is all a restaurant offers. I'm not one to make a fuss, I just work around the menu. I just can't believe it is that hard to at least have a garden burger on the menu. So I sat with about 15 of Steve's family and didn't even eat anything, which is obviously awkward. At least I had the sore throat to point to.

Here's to hoping my throat clears up soon, because Steve and I are leaving for Hawaii this Saturday!

Oooh I always wanted to go the Melting Pot, but never did.

I wish I could think of some creative granola entry, but I can't. Booo.

Aimee - I have been curious, since you live in Pittsburgh, what do you think of the food options there in terms of restaurants/grocrey stores?

Although I never lived in the city of Pittsburgh, I lived close enough - and I really miss it!

Great blog, by the way!

Love Joe's Crab Shack and have always wanted to go to the Melting Pot! I think I will once I go home for the rest of the summer.

I hope your throat gets better soon. That's just no fun :o/
