WIAW #6...

I can't believe it's Wednesday again already.  My WIAW post will be some pictures of the eats from the long weekend.  It was our 16th wedding anniversary so there was lots of eating out this weekend.

Have you tried this yogurt?  I really like it.  I have been eating Greek yogurt for a while so it's a nice change of pace going with just regular organic yogurt.

We had dinner at the Melting Pot on Saturday night.

I didn't get a shot of the shrimp we shared, but these are the appetizer and dessert.

The cheese was:
Wisconsin Trio Cheese Fondue
Rich Fontina and Butterkäse join buttermilk bleu cheese, white wine, scallions and a hint of sherry
The chocolate was:
Flaming Turtle
We consider it Fondue Candy. It’s an irresistible combination of milk chocolate, caramel and candied pecans flambéed tableside.
All I can say about this was yum.
Instead of brunch on Sunday we went to my new favorite Mexican restaurant, Chuy's.  I had the Bean and Cheese Burrito. 
“Big As Yo’Face”
They describe it as:
A homemade, 12” flour tortilla stuffed with refried beans,

cheese and your choice of the following. Served with
your choice of sauce & your choice of Mexican rice or
green chile rice.

It looks like this:
Well it looks like this sideways.  It was enough for two big meals.

I broke out my bike on Monday, I've got a 5K bike sprint on Sunday for the Corporate Challenge and I hadn't ridden my bike since the Tie Dye Tri last September.  (My number from the race was still on my bike.)  So I got it down and headed out for 12 hilly miles and then rode the 3.5 miles to the Y for weights and lunges and sauna and then 3.5 miles home.  Between the 12 mile ride and the Y I had this:
Crunchy peanut butter and honey on whole wheat toast.  I also drank both water bottles full of NUUN as I was in re-hydration mode after the weekend's festivities.  More on that later.


  1. I have always wanted to go to a Fondu restaurant...sounds like such fun!

    1. It is fun, I can't wait to go back with my kiddos!

  2. Haven't had fondu in ages! At one point I had three pots! Gifts, hand-me-downs. Needless to say I never used them so passed them on, but I would love a fondu-restaurant. What a treat! Stopping by from WIAW!

    1. I love The Melting Pot, but it's not a place I can afford very often.
      Thanks for stopping by!
