Happy Monday all! This weekend was a wet one here in San Francisco, so overall I did not accomplish very much. It was very relaxing though which was a nice change of pace! Friday night I stayed in after going to class, so not much to report there. I did discover a new show on Netflix- Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries. It is about a lady detective in Australia during the 1920s. It can be pretty corny at times, but I have decided to go all in. Netflix binge worthy in my books!
Saturday I woke up relatively early and went to a circuit class at CardioTone in Noe Valley. We did 3 circuits 2 times through and each circuit had 4 different stations. Overall the class is good, sweaty, and always different circuits so never boring. Plus, I have liked all my teachers thus far at this location! Saturday was also a school day, so after making breakfast I went to class for a quick 4 hours. (Only joking... 4 hours is never quick!) Afterwards, I stayed in since it was basically a monsoon outside.
I was so proud of myself on Saturday for making all of my meals (plus unpictured snacks) at home since I had some produce and other things to use up before they went bad. For breakfast I made an egg sandwich on Dave's Killer Bread (yum) and had a bowl of cereal right before school. Anyone else love Puffins? They are probably my most favorite cereal! My dinner though... not healthy, but it was delicious! I was definitely craving comfort foods during the rainy weather. The snow peas made up for the mac & cheese PLUS mashed potatoes, right? RIGHT!
After some much needed sleep on Saturday night, Sunday I woke up to go to class at Salt in NoPa. Unfortunately, parking was DISASTROUS because a farmer's market had shut down a section of the street. I had definitely seen this market before, but it totally slipped my mind! Anyway, I showed up 7 minutes late to class and was not allowed in. I have never tried this class before, so I was excited for a new experience. Oh Well!
After I was turned away, I walked over to the farmer's market and got a juice from Juicy Lucy. I got the La Vampira which is beet, parsley, celery, carrot, lemon, ginger, and cayenne. Man that thing was spicy! The market was very small and mostly produce, but the morning was beautiful so it was nice just to walk around.
After the market, I went home and did my own circuit workout. Then I got ready to meet Adrienne at Scotland Yard in the Marina for a late brunch. We had purchased a Gilt City deal which got us $100 worth of food and drink for $60. Since we had so much to spend, we kind of went all out. Yay fancy brunch! We tried the chicken and waffle bites which were delicious. I also had the egg sandwich which was kind of like a fancy egg McMuffin and Adrienne had the biscuits and gravy. Both were very good! We also split the cool ranch french fries. These were not what we were expecting and I would not get them again. I'm not sure what I was expecting though! Overall, I would recommend this place for brunch. I also hear their burger is amazing. Maybe next time! They do take reservations and during brunch they have bottomless mimosas for $16. After brunch, we headed over to Reed & Greenough for one (or two!) more glasses of wine. I really like this place because they have live piano music throughout the night and comfy couches. They also have a pool table if you're into that!
Hope everyone had a fabulous weekend and a great Monday so far!
