Morning! Maybe it's the fact that it's slightly warmer today than it has been in a while, but I'm ready to tackle this week!
Friday after work, Cameron and I had a meeting downtown so we decided to hit up happy hour at Bay Street Biergarten. Their "freaky taters" (tater tots with a demi-glace, smoked cheddar sauce and green onions) called our names and we could not resist. So bad, yet so very good. Came home to my Amazon order waiting for me on the front porch. Why is it that every time you go on Amazon to order one thing (especially Amazon Prime), something additional always winds up in your cart, too? Target is also known for this, maybe even worse.
Saturday I made it to bikini bootcamp at the gym (definitely needed to after all of those tater tots), made a quick trip to the grocery store, then ran a few errands for my Dad's birthday party that evening. We held it at the "boat club" in Summerville (there are no boats, only a ramp), which is pretty much one of the two places to hold a party in Summerville is. It's perfect for oyster roasts though! My mom had some barbecue and sides catered, we picked up a couple of bushels of oysters, and other than that it was pretty low key. Exactly what my Dad wanted.

(Camo was very prevalent that night)
Sunday was spent running more errands with a yummy brunch at Sunrise Bistro in between. I ordered the Mediterranean open faced omelet (no olives or onions, add tomatoes please) with a side of pepper-jack grits. Yum.
We had some oysters left over from the party the night before, so for dinner, we made oysters rockefeller using Tyler Florence's recipe, served also with a big salad to balance everything out. :) They were SO good!!
Sunday evening, I made a loaf of this banana bread (I substituted 1/2 cup white sugar, 1/2 cup light brown sugar) to enjoy as we watched House of Cards and as a quick breakfast option during the week. So tasty and moist - sorry, I know a lot of people hate that word, but I can't think of a better one.
So basically, Sunday was based all around food. Just the way I like it.
