Weekend Recap

Why, hello there! We're halfway through the week & I'm just now posting our weekend recap. Oops!

Friday night we stayed in & had a movie night. We've discovered the app "Showbox", have any of you tried it out? It has TONS of movies (some of which are still in theaters) as well as TV shows! It's also free, so win, win! We watched Jack Reacher. Neither one of us had seen it, and we were pleasantly surprised.

Saturday: We didn't do much. We had some errands we needed to run, but other than that we just enjoyed a quiet day at home.

Sunday: It was such a pretty day! The sun was finally shining and it was in the 60's! We took advantage of the pretty weather and went for a long drive down the back roads. We used to do it quite a bit last fall and haven't really done it much since. The other day the husband told me that he missed our long drives where we would turn the radio up, or just talk. We ended up in Lexington, and we were starving! We wanted to try out this new BBQ joint that we thought had opened but it appears we were 3 days too early :(. There was a restaurant across the street from it and the hubby asked if I had eaten there. I said, no. Actually, I had never even heard of it. So, off we went to check it out! It was called BRU Burger Bar. It's exactly what it sounds like, a burger bar. Or, more like a gourmet burger bar. They have SO many different options to choose from. I do love that you're able to substitute chicken, turkey burger, or veggie burger in place of beef. Also, their burgers are made with ground chuck, brisket & sirloin. When we ordered they suggested that we order our burgers cooked like we like our steaks.

I chose the Provencal Burger. It was a burger topped with basil aioli, marinated red onions, herbed goat cheese & sauteed mushrooms. It was so delicious! The marinated red onions along with the goat cheese...was a match made in heaven!

Don had the Honey Chipotle BBQ Burger. It was topped with bacon, caramelized onions, white cheddar, onion ring, bbq pulled pork and their house made Black Pepper Mayo. It was huge, as you can see! It was so delicious! We also got a side of fries to split & they were perfectly seasoned along with just the right amount of crunch. They also make their own ketchup in house every single day, and it was delicious! I don't think it'll ever be the same eating ketchup out of a bottle again!

Of course Sunday evening we watched the Superbowl! Wasn't that game crazy!? I was rooting for the Falcons, just simply because I am not a Patriots fan. Actually, I'm not a Brady fan. However, I have to give it to them. They played one heck of a game! The Falcons just seemed to fall apart, and fall apart quickly! I did enjoy the halftime show! I thought Lady Gaga nailed it! Was anyone else disappointed in the commercials? There was one or two that I thought were cute, but they just didn't seem to be as great as they have been in years past.

After the super bowl we decided to venture to the grocery store. We attempted it earlier in the day but it was a MADHOUSE and we said, no thank you! Thankfully at 10pm, 90% of the people were not at the grocery, so shopping went off without a hitch :).

Happy Thursday, friends!

Like you, I didn't really want the Pats to win, but with that comeback, they deserved to win.
