Good morning from Asheville! Bet you didn’t think I’d be posting over the weekend, didja?
Well, today’s a special one. Because I’m collaborating with beautiful mama and blogger extraordinaire, Brandi Kennedy. My favorite posts to write (and read!) are always the ones that share a little insight about a blogger’s life. A little behind-the-scenes. So, each month, I like to write a “Lately” post where I share what’s been going on as of late.
Brandi and I are both playing the Lately game today and I encourage you to join in by dropping your own Lately link-up below! And, if you’re not a blogger or don’t have a post to share, play along in the comments and share with us what’s been going on as of late! 🙂
I finished this book last weekend and am still suffering from a book hangover. I can’t pick up a new book quite yet. Jodi Picoult’s words had me feeling all the feels. She’s a wonderful writer and I’m pretty confident that the next book I read will be one of hers.
I CANNOT believe that I’m enjoying this show. This is absolutely NOT the type of thing I watch. (If you know me at all, you know I’m the “Friends re-runs” and “romantic comedies” type of gal. NOT the kind of girl that would get a kick out of knights being beheaded.) But there are so many twists and turns that it’s hard not to get invested in the show.
Our first stop when we got to Asheville yesterday was Chai Pani. They’re known for their western take on Indian street food. We ordered Bombay Chili Cheese fries to start. Fries topped with lamb, paneer, tomatoes, onions and chutney. The description on the menu itself said, “Yes. It’s awesome.” We were really impressed with the place. Everything tasted SO good but also relatively light for being an Indian food place. Normally, I tend to leave Indian restaurants with a belly ache from all the oil and butter. But this place had all the flavor without making us feel disgusting.
I’m definitely not cooking this weekend. But, earlier this week, I made a Weight Watchers casserole to celebrate National Margarita Day. Casseroles are my favorite. The leftovers last for days!
Ankur and I are eating our way through Asheville right now! Last night, we went to Plant for dinner. It’s a vegan restaurant that serves craft beers and biodynamic wines. And it was absolutely delicious. Ankur ordered a “cheese” plate and I ordered the tofu bimbimbap. We finished off every single morsel on our plate and then ordered a Blackout cake for dessert.
We just got back from Liberty House Coffee. Can I just pause here to talk about how much I miss living near a coffee shop? Like a real coffee shop. I’m indulging in all things coffee and food this weekend and I feel absolutely no guilt.
Questions of the Day:
- What are you reading lately? Drinking lately? Eating lately?
