The title of this post was inspired by this song as well as by the fact that I visited St. Louis this weekend! I suppose I could have used a more modern version of a St. Louis-inspired song:
But I digress.
The trip was a lot of fun! I enjoyed seeing my family and we had some fun visiting the science museum, going out to breakfast/dinner and simply hanging out together. I shared information about my blog with them, so HI EVERYONE! if you’re reading Hope you enjoy!
I’m pretty tired out but wanted to post highlights from the weekend. We went out to breakfast to a restaurant called First Watch on both Saturday and Sunday mornings. On Saturday, I got the Greek omelette with black olives, spinach, feta, red onion and red peppers. It came with fresh fruit and an English muffin.
On Sunday, I got the Healthy Turkey omelette, which came with turkey, spinach, feta cheese and tomatoes. There was fresh fruit and an English muffin on the side with this one, too.
Both breakfasts were excellente! I highly recommend this restaurant because they have plenty of light options to choose from and are very accommodating (cook with spray, no butter, etc.) too.
We also went to an Italian neighborhood near the city called “The Hill”
We ate dinner at a restaurant called Charlie Gitto’s. I started off with some fresh bread and a small spinach salad, and ordered the chicken marsala for dinner.
It was good stuff – it came with a sweet potato (the muffin-like thing in the top left of the picture) and some grilled zucchini. Of course it still has nothing on my dad’s recipe 😉 But delicious nonetheless!
After dinner we went to a place famous for its frozen custard – because really, what better way to end the evening? It was called Ted Drewes, and I got the strawberry concrete – YUM!
So those were the foodie highlights of the weekend – plus some airport food and a few trips to Starbucks 😉 I hope everyone had a lovely weekend. I’m playing catch-up on the blogs but will be reading them all soon!
“See” you for more tomorrow – have a Merry Monday!
