Weekend Randomness

Weekends for me aren’t necessarily Saturdays and Sundays…they are basically any days that I am off and sometimes that falls on an actual weekend and sometimes it falls on a Tuesday. That is the beauty of inpatient nursing…that being said I did have an actual weekend, but a long one so I thought it would be fun to share that with you.

On days that I am off and hubby works I try to cook up something yummy, nutritious and different then our quick throw together stuff. Salmon is definitely one of those meals that gets thrown into rotation-hubby loves it when salmon is on the menu and it fits into that yummy and nutritious category.


We had this piece of salmon with some roasted cauli and since we had a few carrots leftover I roasted those up too.

I’ve been enjoying rice bowls for lunches/dinners recently. I have honestly never been a rice person, but recently I’ve been craving it. I love throwing in whatever veggies we have on hand along with some beefless ground and this green sriracha from Trader Joes.


When hubby and I finally had the chance to go out we hit up a Mediterranean spot, The Diplomat, to get in some good eats. To start we had the hummus, pickles, and falafel.



We ended up sharing the lamb chops for our main. I think the hummus may have been one of my favorite parts of the meal. It was so smooth and creamy!


On Sunday morning, post HIIT I toasted up a Kodiak Cake waffle (yes, still eating them!) and spread some peanut butter and mashed up some raspberries on top. Will be doing this again!


During our grocery run we ended up hungry and found ourselves in the car eating rotisserie chicken and some cake we picked up from Porto’s. The carrot cake was my favorite outta the two and I will definitely be adding that to my list of items to get from there.


We wrapped our weekend with In n’ Out and flan from Porto’s along with a nice long walk. I hope you guys enjoyed the post!

What’s your favorite weekend thing to do?

    All of your food from this past weekend looks so good! Especially the salmon you made, oh my gosh. As for the Kodiak waffles.. I have been meaning to try them but haven’t yet and am starting to think I should! I love waffles πŸ™‚

    Also, I am so jealous that you have In n’ Out near you! Since moving out of California I miss it so much! I think the closest one from me is 5 hours?

    Anyway, hope your week is going well so far!

    Man everything looks delicious, even the rice and veggies, which I am not a fan of AT ALL!!! Yours looks so bright and tasty! LOL

    Everyone raves about In n Out but I’m a Fatburger / Fat fries girl myself.

    I’ll have to try that carrot cake when I get back to L.A.!

    Thanks for sharing your weekend with us!

    What a wonderful weekend! The salmon looks so good & I’ve been loving rice bowls a lot lately, too, but I’ve always been a rice girl. πŸ˜› What does the green sriracha taste like?! I’m curious!

    The Mediterranean spot looks awesome & so do those mashed berries. Yum! Carrot cake is one of my top fave desserts, too! Thanks for sharing your noms, Jess!!! β™‘
