Today was an absolutely gorgeous day. A little cooler than it has been with lots and lots of fluffy clouds floating by.
I took a friend out for a birthday breakfast to a new restaurant called the Cocoa Room. Very cool place with a nice, unique atmosphere and very efficient staff.
We shared blueberry waffles and a bowl of exotic fruits along with cups of coffee. It's nice to share because portion sizes are usually way too big and it also helps to keep the cost down.
For lunch I made one of my favorite cabbage salads. I posted the recipe here if you are interested.
And I must admit, I might have a slight addiction to microwave mug cakes at the moment. Yesterday I posted about the blueberry mug cake I made for breakfast. Then after cleaning for 5 hours, I decided to reward myself with a cinnamon mug cake with streusel topping. I used this recipe, but added cinnamon and chopped pecans to the mix, substituted applesauce for the oil in the cake and used a teaspoon of coconut oil for the streusel. It was delicious with a cup of ginger tea.
Now today, I decided to get creative and made an olive oil lemon mug cake with lemon glaze. Boy was it good. Even hubby agreed.
We were supposed to walk this afternoon but a sand storm was predicted so we decided to play it safe and stay at home. Although the wind picked up a bit and some dark clouds came through, the weather never did get bad.
And so, once again, another weekend is drawing to an end. I hope you are enjoying yours!
Best wishes and blessings,
