For the Love of Food...

When Mom comes I completely abandon my WW lifestyle because we love to celebrate with food. We love to go to different places, make fun dishes at home and even take a class or two! The few pounds I gained over these past 5 days were worth every bite!!!!
 Last Friday we went to Cincinnati for a little day trip and I found this ultra cool place called Senate. The Chef has won numerous awards and the Yelp reviews on this place sealed the deal! Mom and I had lobster rolls, duck fat fries and too-die-for beneigh's for dessert! So fun!
 Sunday night Mom and I went back to one of the first places we ate when I moved to Columbus the famous Schmidt's Sausage Haus that has been featured on Man vs Food as well as Martha Stewart show! This restaurant has been open since 1886 in German Village here in Columbus! And oh ya, our German food was soo good!
 On St. Patricks Day Mom and I took an Irish Cooking class at Sur La Table and it was so much fun! There were only 4 of us so we really got to be involved in all the steps of the meal! We had Apple and Parsnip Soup, Guinness glazed Salmon with mash potatoes and cabbage braised with bacon and for dessert we had Irish Whiskey Chocolate cake......Man, I am absolutely going to make this whole meal at home for Matt when we move!
Last night for Mom's last meal here we used my counter top pizza maker from Sur La Table and we both made our own mushroom truffle oil pizza for dinner! Mom completely fell in love with this neat gadget as much as I have! Pizza Night!!!!

Man, we ate much more but just writing this post is making me so hungry! Happy Tummies = Happy Hearts!

It all looks delicious and a lot of fun with your Mom! You look great by the way! I meant to comment when you did the review on the skinny jeans a couple weeks back. You are shrinking before our eyes. Any WW updates soon?
