Tag Archives: weekend fun
Well, it was quite a busy weekend. My friend Stefanie was in town, and since she needed to promote her kids yoga teacher training coming up (you can register here *wink wink*), we decided to hit up some of the different Saturday morning markets that take place in town every weekend.
Amidst all my friend-supporting, I discovered this delightful stall: 221B Baker’s Treat. Their mystery-themed goods include Sherlock Scones, Dr. Watson’s Brownies, and Ms. Hudson’s Cookies. Even better, they have both vegan and gluten free treats. We chatted up the baker and her husband and discovered that along with themed offerings, the baked goods use locally sourced ingredients, and the flavors are dictated by seasonal offerings. I am planning on dragging Andy back to stock up on more scones the next chance I get. After the downtown market, we hit the Market Square farmers market; it’s much smaller so it was more of an in and out kind of thing. Probably not a bad thing, considering I noticed some flowering plants that would look great in my front yard… We took a break and grabbed brunch at Sweet Pea Cafe. So much amazing vegan food, so little time. They even had the Green Tea Sugar cookies that I love; I bought two to take home for later. It was so good we even went back on Sunday before she had to head home. We did another round of flyer hand-outs around Lake Ella and then met up with our friend Lexy, grabbed ice cream, and spent the next couple of hours catching up and thoroughly enjoying our girl time. Unfortunately the sundae below was not mine, mine was considerably less picturesque, but equally delicious. Sunday was mostly dedicated to Andy and I running errands, but we did manage to grab brunch (at the aforementioned Sweet Pea Cafe) with Stefanie and my adorable corgi niece Ruby. She loves me quite a bit, but the last time she was in town Andy gave her ear scratches and brushed her for THREE HOURS while we watched movies. Needless to say, I have been replaced as her favorite human who isn’t her mom 🙂
