Weekending - April 21, 2017

Hello friends!  How did Monday get here so quickly?!?  We had a lovely weekend and the only down side was it passing so fast.

Friday night I met some friends after work at a new joint and am already trying to figure out when I can go back.  Seriously, it was that good!  Club Taco in Kirkwood was the perfect little spot to grab a drink and dinner to start the weekend.  They have an adorable little area to sit outside, but the rain made our decision to sit inside pretty easy.

We got there in time for their happy hour pricing and enjoyed 1/2 price tacos and 2 for 1 house margaritas and sangria.  What a deal!  I ordered a traditional carnitas and traditional bisteca taco with a side of club tots.  The tots - OMG!!  Fried tots with aged white cheddar, freshly roasted green chiles, chipotle crema and a Buttonwood Farm free-rage fried egg topped with radish.  I can't stop thinking about how good it was!

One of my friends got a side of roasted street corn casserole.  She let me take a bite and I literally ordered six sides of them to go.  We were having Ian and Kayla over to watch the St. Louis Blues hockey games on Saturday and it was going to make a perfect side to the chicken enchiladas I was making. (Just an FYI, everyone at my house LOVED the corn!)

After the food was devoured, we hung around for another drink.  The watermelon basil 'rita sounded too good to pass up so I ordered one of those.  Fabulous!  Guys, this little place is definitely worth checking out.  It was the perfect place to catch up with my friends!

Saturday morning I got up early and started cooking.  We made the chicken enchiladas casserole that I blogged about HERE, a new chocolate cake recipe that I'll have share with you and homemade ice cream.  Fun way to spend a Saturday morning!

Between cooking and when Kayla and Ian were arriving, we popped in Fezziwig's to pick up a few items.  They were having an Earth Day sale and we had wanted to take advantage of it!  They carry a pear wine that is so delightful.  We're stocked and ready to enjoy it with friends now.

The highlight of the day was the St. Louis Blues winning their game and moving on to the second round of the NHL playoffs!!  We were so excited to have Kayla and Ian there to watch it with us.  Could this be our year to win the cup?!?  Let's hope so!
Sunday was sailing along quite nicely -- right up until the time Eric was headed for work and experienced car trouble.  Man, can that really throw a wrench into things!  He ended up taking my car and leaving me home with no vehicle.  First world problems I know, but darn is it inconvenient only having one car with two working people going in opposite directions!  We are hoping to get the car back by Wednesday.  Until then, we are going to have to do some creative commuting.

Hope you had a wonderful weekend and your week is off to a great start.  Cross your fingers that life with two cars resumes at our house soon!

Check out what others were up to this weekend.

  1. Ummm those tacos look like heaven. And the same goes for the side. I would have ordered the same amount to go.
    And RIP Maple Leafs. It was a very sad day in our house let me tell you.
    Car troubles is no fun at all. I hope it's nothing too expensive to fix! It's the pits when you only have one vehicle.

  2. Club Taco looks like a happening place! And the tacos look delicious. Moving to TN from California, I absolutely miss my Mexican food.

  3. Sounds like a really nice weekend. That restaurant seems lovely and mm...the tots! I could go for those right now.

    Car troubles are awful when one person is stuck without one. It seems like when you don't have a car, that's when you need it the most.


  4. You picked very appetizing dishes and drinks. You made me hungry!
