Happy Sunday! Here with a few highlights from my lazy weekend. I usually like to have lots planned for the weekend, but this weekend I definitely just needed to relax. Connor and I didn’t do much this weekend, but there were a few eventful moments.
On Friday night we got ramen for dinner. I am on a quest to try all of the ramen places in Chicago. We ended up at Ramen Takeya in the Fulton Market. We went around 7pm, so it was a bit crowded, but we definitely went at a good time. The wait was less than 20 minutes and our food came out fast. We got brussel sprouts for an appetizer and they were so good. They were really flakey and had a hint of lemon which I liked.
I got the vegan ramen and added an egg per usual. Connor got a shio ramen. He wasn’t a huge fan of his. I don’t think he liked the broth, but I loved mine. I didn’t love some of the toppings, but the broth was so flavorful. After ramen, we watched New Girl and ordered Insomnia cookies for a little treat. We got a few different flavors. Connor liked the red velvet best and I liked the peanut butter best.
We did nothing all day on Saturday, but did meet up with two friends for drinks and dinner. We went to Happy Camper and got pizzas to share. I shared a veggie option with Benny and Connor shared one with Zach. I think the pizzas were called Glenn and Mike, but I could be wrong about that. I also got a really yummy drink. It had gin and basil in it. I’m definitely going to recreate it at home sometime. After drinks and dinner, we went out for a little, but I still got home decently early. I love getting lots of sleep on the weekend.
A final highlight of the weekend was grocery shopping. Connor and I don’t go grocery shopping too often because we usually try to stock up each time. I went a couple weeks ago, so we were due for a grocery run. Instead of going to Aldi, we drove to Mariano’s so we could get a bunch of stuff– ingredients to make tacos, some ramen ingredients, lots of soup (I was craving soup hahah), fruit, and lots more. I am glad we went to a bigger grocery store. Aldi doesn’t have a ton of variety, so it’s nice to try different things. I did miss how easy it was to shop. At Aldi, I always get the same things and know exactly where everything is.
I am happy we were able to relax a bit this weekend, but I’m excited to do something more adventurous next weekend. What did you do this weekend? Do you like to have a lot planned on the weekend or do you prefer to rest up and relax?
