Weekend Review: 1

I know this isn't the first week of Weekend Review but since there have been so many, I thought I'd start a new beginning.

So, here we go!

Friday I went so Sociable Cider Werks with Kari. Their cider was really good. I loved their lighter cider called Free Wheeler. To me it beats out all the other ciders out there on tap like Strongbow and Crispin. Plus I really like supporting the locals. They had a pretty cool set up with a long bar and plenty of tables. They also had a food truck which is great for when those hunger pangs strike.

Spoke wrench cider
After Cider Werks we met up with one of our friends who came to Cabo with us, Lauren. We walked over to Hammer N Sickle for some good ol Russian food and drinks. In my opinion you can't go wrong with a Moscow Mule. Always delicious.

Saturday I had a viewing lined up for an apartment right across the street from Lake Calhoun. The location would be absolutely perfect. There was just one tiny problem and it was that the units I looked at were so small, I would only be able to bring half of my furniture with me. No bueno.

Needless to say I was pretty bummed that this apartment wasn't everything I had hoped for. On the plus side I had an afternoon of fun planned with some friends. We all met up at Figlio for cocktails and food before going to the Lego movie.


I absolutely love Figlio. It brings me back to when I was in my early twenties and it was located in UpTown. Every Sunday Funday was spent there drinking lots and lots of wine and ordering all their flat breads.  Now it's in the West End which has a theater so you go to Figlio for approx five glasses of wine, some fried cheese ravioli, meatball bruschetta, and fries and then go sober up at the movie theater. Not that I've done that or anything.

Have you seen the Lego movie? I had no previous interest in it. I just tagged along for the social aspect. Then the movie started and I found myself laughing out loud and smiling through a large part of the movie. It was pretty cute, and I would probably recommend you go see it just because you probably don't have a 3D tv in your house. If you're too cool for school and do have a 3D tv then save $15 and get it from Red Box and lets be friends. I'll bring the wine.

Sunday I slept in too darn late because of that pesky day light savings thing. I new what I wanted to make for dinner, so I found the crock pot, collected my ingredients and let it cook all afternoon. I should probably share what I made. Remember one of the best lunches at school, turkey and gravy? It was my favorite. So I made chicken and gravy in the crockpot. 

2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 can cream of chicken
2 cans water
1 packet turkey gravy
1 packet brown gravy
pepper

Toss it all in and cook on high for about 5 hours. Remove the chicken and shred or cut into chunks. I couldn't even pierce the chicken with a fork it was so tender it just fell apart.

I served over red potatoes with a side of corn. It was a nice hearty meal and something new to make.

The rest of the day was spent like this.


Just the way Sundays should be spent.
