This weekend was one of good eats and good workouts. I posted about my Saturday evening run in my last post, but I will save Sunday’s workout for it’s own post. That is, if I can get out of bed the next few days because soreness is starting to set in, big time. On to the eats!
Friday night, we tried out a new sushi spot. We had all the intention of going to our usual place, but Atami has caught our eye time after time because along the way to the other place we go, and Tommy actually pulled a
n illegal u-turn to get us there on Friday.
I am so happy that we tried it because I think I like it better than the other two placed we’ve been going to lately. Atami is a buffet style sushi place, where you get a piece of paper, write down what rolls you want and pay a flat rate at the end regardless of how much you order. What makes Atami different from the other buffet places we’ve tried is that there is an actual buffet in addition to table service. Even though I didn’t get much from the actual buffet, Munchkin was able to have a full meal, instead of just a few bites of sushi, as usual.
We were also pleasantly surprised by the quality of the rolls when our order came out. The three of us ordered a bunch of rolls to share and they were all delish.
On Saturday morning, my boys woke up and told me they wanted pancakes for breakfast. What was I supposed to do? I was outnumbered 2-1, so I got my butt to the kitchen. Since I’m not a fan of doing anything easy or plain, I decided to spice the pancakes up a little. I bet you’ve already noticed my affinity for the white chocolate and cranberry combo, as seen in my Cranberry Bliss Bar and Cranberry Bliss oatmeal, so what better to make for breakfast than Cranberry Bliss Pancakes?
