This weekend went by FAST as Brian and I had some fun and prepped for the final week before Thanksgiving. I can’t believe, and I’m so excited, that Thanksgiving is next week.
Friday night looked like this:
That would be November Date Night. More details on what we did coming in a post later this week!
Saturday morning started with a smoothie that was extra thick and creamy thanks to some added sweet potato. I was totally inspired by Meg on this one 😉 Recipe coming soon…
Brian and I had some unused gift cards, so I went out and bought fun holiday decorations.
Saturday night, Brian and I attended a dental school event and had lots of fun just letting loose 🙂
We went Duckpin bowling in a cool downtown Indianapolis neighborhood called Fountain Square.
Duckpin bowling is slightly different than regular bowling because of the scoring, the smaller bowling balls, and funny shaped pins.
For me, weather it’s Duckpin or regular…I am simply no good at bowling!
Sunday morning started with another smoothie with a fun new-to-my-smoothie ingredient…DATES! This is the recipe I used. Ever tried dates in a smoothie? They add a nice touch of sweetness. I will definitely be adding them in again.
I also prepped a ton of food for the week including these yummy and easy granola bars from the Minimalist Baker. (click the link for the recipe) Just 5 ingredients!
And I tried Lindsay over at the Lean Green Bean‘s Cranberry Sweet Potato Cottage Cheese Muffins to have on hand for grab and go breakfasts, a little something sweet for Brian’s lunches and as a quick snack.
I was a little nervous to try this recipe…sweet potatoes? cottage cheese? in muffins??…But the turned out great and this will definitely be a recipe that we keep in regular rotation.
Also, the cranberry and sweet potato make them a bit festive!
I worked outside to take some quick blog photos before the big storm hit.
And then Brian and I went to his parent’s house for a relaxing Sunday dinner and to talk about our holiday schedule. Sorry, no pictures of that…but Brian’s dad made a yummy veggie lasagna with homemade ricotta. Delish!
