Weekend Treats

Another weekend recap post…


Bought a huge bag of cherries and I’m trying to eat them all before they go bad… here with cottage cheese (but better with yogurt).


The fiance’ and I have been working on the house (with no kitchen or bathroom), so I grabbed us some take out Sushi for dinner.


I knew he’d have beer but I wanted something I could buy at the grocery store and the clerk suggested Framboise since I can’t stand regular beer.  Undecided about it, but definitely not as bad as regular beer.


Refueled after hot yoga Saturday morning with avocado, gouda, egg, and tomato on a TJ’s sandwich thin.


More takeout!  Roasted veggie pizza from a favorite wood fired spot.


Dessert last night?  Paige’s protein cookie bowl (halved the recipe).


More decadent with whipped cream.  You have to try this if you haven’t yet!

Any other beer-phobes out there?  What’s your alternative?

    actually ~ i don’t mind the taste of beer, but it’s not my beverage of choice either. i prefer a black cherry float!! i know, i know ~ it’s not something that you can have though on a regular basis ~ i usually TRY and stick with H20. i’ve been chowing down on cherries like there’s no tomorrow! oh, and sushi too! happy monday to you claire 😉 😉

    I LOVE FRAMBOISE! Peach is my favorite flavor.

    I can’t stand beer usually, sometimes I’ll have a few sips. I’m usually into some wine or a fruity mixed drink. 🙂

    I’m a wine drinker through and through. I wouldn’t say I have a beer “phobia” it just doesn’t sit well with me. I’d prefer a nice glass of red wine any day 🙂

    PS – that pizza looks amazing!

    So glad you liked cookie bowl!! I’m all out. I think I need to make some for the week 😉

    Whoa. I need that Protein Cookie Bowl in my life ASAP. It looks so good!

    I WISH I didn’t like bber! Framboise is also good to cook with – great with berry desserts or compotes.

    Cider’s a good choice if you’re beer-phobic! It’s sweeter, tart and still bubbly!

    I really dislike dark beer. I can handle light beer, but I prefer wine and mixed drinks any day 🙂

    I’m definitely not a beer person but I am loving that cookie dough bowl 😀

    I can’t say much about beer because I am only 19 but what I’ve smelled of my parents before it seems… interesting haha. It must be an acquired taste 😉

    Clearly, I’m a beer girl, but a glass of wine is always nice! I’m jealous you got your hands on some cherries. My grocery store was out of them this weekend. Bummer!
