Mom Visit {a recap}

My mom was in town last weekend! So I made sure to take her to my favorite places. We went to Taqueria Lupita’s for dinner for carnitas tacos and then walked down to La Gloria Bakery for churros and the cutest cookies ever. (I can’t wait to go back to try their pork tamales!)

We went to Eastern Market on Saturday morning for strawberries and rhubarb to make pie! We couldn’t resist the daffodils either. For dinner I used some of the strawberries for my fried goat cheese and strawberry salad, and it’d be a shame to have a salad without crusty bread!

Sunday we headed over to Zingerman’s Delicatessen for lunch. We split the Cuban Conundrum sandwich, the Nathan’s Double Play hot dog and their awesome mac and cheese. Then we hit up Oddfellow’s. (It’s my favorite antique store!) I finally bought the pink whale of my dreams and the little floral vase pictured. Then we made coconut oil granola! I totally made her take some in a bag for a snack at the airport Monday.

Needless to say, it was such a fun weekend! I had so much fun taking my mom around town to all my favorite places to eat and shop.

  1. Sounds like a great weekend. I love Eastern Market. Were the strawberries and rhubarb from Michigan yet? I thought it might be a little early in the season yet. Zingerman’s Bakery is one of my favorite places to pick up some sweets when I don’t feel like being in the kitchen.

    1. Ya know, I’m not sure if the berries are from Michigan yet, but I do know that they are way better than the ones I’ve been finding at the grocery store.

      And yes! Zingerman’s is where it’s at.

  2. What a great visit your mom had! (I base the success of visits on food consumed and or purchases made, so…yeah, success!)

    Your Zingerman’s Delicatessen meal looks A-mazing. And I love the whale you bought! So cute.

    1. Yes! It’s all about the food. 🙂

      And if you’re ever in Michigan you have to go to Zingerman’s! It’s ridiculously good.
