Hello and happy Sunday!
Matt and I have been having a nice weekend here in Chapel Hill. On Friday night we saw The Hunger Games! We both loved it (and have both read all the books — don’t see the movie before you read the books!) — what did you guys think? I was really impressed with how they translated it all into a movie. Plus, it was filmed in NC — wish I’d been an extra. 😉
Yesterday, Matt and I spent the day at Macy’s working on our wedding registry! Before heading out, we fueled up with a good lunch. Matt hates making lunch but loves making dinners — I’m the opposite! It works out well. Here’s what I made us:
I made a variation of this hummus wrap for one of my packed lunches earlier this week and it was so good I had to make it again.
It’s an Ezekiel wrap filled with roasted red pepper hummus, sliced pickles, a ton of sprouts, and some hearty spinach. Great variety of textures and flavors!
To enjoy on the side, I made us both salads with a homemade dressing (just a mix of garlic olive oil, balsamic vinegar, lemon juice, dijon mustard, and salt/pepper):
Plus some kiwi hiding in the back of the photo below.
Guys crack me up — check out Matt’s version of rolling up his wrap:
Lol. I made wraps for us again today and wrapped it for him.
After running a bunch of errands and finishing our registry at Macy’s, Matt and I headed back out for a fun dinner date. We met up with Laura (aka Larbs, who I met through her sister, Kath) and her boyfriend Matt at one of my favorites, Guglhupf in Durham.
Matt and I have both been to Guglhupf before for brunch, but never for dinner. Laura and Matt live in Durham and said it’s one of their dinner favorites so we were excited to check it out!
They were right — the food was delicious! To start, I enjoyed the roasted pear salad:
And for my entrÃ©e, I ordered the scallops with sautÃ©ed swiss chard, mushrooms, and pureed kohlrabi.
For dessert, Matt and I shared the cheese tart — it was topped with a tart lemon layer and was SO amazing. I love desserts like this — not too sweet.
Thanks for the fun night, Laura & Matt!
Time to tackle our to-do lists and then — must. finish. registering!! Today’s plan is Crate & Barrel. Have a great day!
