Recent Eats + Exercise

Hi guys! Popping in with some food and fitness highlights from the past few days. Let’s start with food – specifically BBQ!

Matt, Riese, our friend Shane, and I hit up Rockland’s BBQ on Saturday for a (super) early dinner and it was delicious. Besides the BBQ and baked beans, I really love their vinegar-y cucumber salad – super tangy! Next time I’m there I’m going to ask how they make it so I can recreate it at home and share it with you guys. :)

PA Weekend
