This weekend was originally supposed to be spent at my brother-in-laws family mountain home in Jim Thorpe, PA, but unfortunately those plans fell through which was definitely sad, but probably for the best since I have an exam this coming week that I need to be studying for (EW that means that spring break is almost over :(). We still went home for the day yesterday since I had a doctors appointment planned and Jeremy had already taken the day off from work.
The drive to my parents house went really quick! Unfortunately, the drive home later that night seemed to take FORever!
When we got there, we had an hour or so until my doctors appointment, so we decided to try a brand new organic cafe called Down to Earth Cafe that buys only local ingredients. I get really excited to think that there is a restaurant like that in my hometown, its the first of its kind there. That I know of anyway!
Jeremy got the Angus burger made with grassfed beef from a farm that was less than 5 miles away from the restaurant! It was really good. I love how the bun is very circular. I love little details like that.
I got the roasted veggie sandwich on ciabatta with goatcheese. It was tasty, however, I felt like it was a little skimpy on both the veggies and goat cheese. Or maybe there was just too much bread. Either way, the proportions were a bit off. I cant wait to go back to this little treasure in my hometown and try something else!
The rest of the evening was spent hanging out with my family and playing with my super cute nieces and nephews! Its always a good time!
This morning, Jeremy and I got up early and hit up Lancasters Central Market to get some veggies and other things for the week.
I got some yummy chevre from local goat farm. The woman who sold me the cheese was telling me about how they have around 100 baby goats right now! When I was growing up we had lots of animal including quite a few goats. At one point we had around 15 goats and the babies were the cutest things EVER!! They would run and jump around like they were so happy to be alive. Its impossible to not smile when watching them. Talking to this woman brought back lots of great memories of growing up with goats as pets 🙂
After getting home from market, I decided to make pancakes. I got a major craving! I decided to make whole wheat pumpkin pancakes. They turned out great! I love thick pancakes, and these were definitely thick, but they were also really light and fluffy!
After pancakes I studied for… hours. I lost track of exactly how many.
Now we are watching the movie Exit Through the Gift shop, a documentary about street art. We just started it, but its already really good! I hope everyone is having a fabulous Saturday!
