My Weekend in Food

I have sat here with a blank screen hoping for some inspiration. Then, I decided to do a montage of my weekend hoping to find something to write about. However, all that I see is the relaxing weekend that Tim and I spent in Iowa. Let me tell you all the fascinating details of my life...

First, we stayed home Friday night to relax. We were both exhausted from a week of travels and we just really needed an evening to rejuvenate ourselves.

On Saturday, we ventured down to the Des Moines Farmers Market. This is one of my favorite things in Iowa. Mixed in with the fresh produce, you will find delicious food vendors, arts and crafts, and fantastic baked goods. Tim enjoyed some fresh brewed Root Beer where I enjoyed some Crab Rangoon, a midwestern Chinese food classic.

Since our return to Ames, Iowa, we hadn't explored downtown Ames so continued on to downtown. We stopped at a restaurant called The Spice. It was a Thai restaurant, but much nicer than any Thai restaurant I have been to. The atmosphere was simple and sophisticated. Red, black, and white decor. Each dish was served with a delicate presentation. We ordered the chicken and pork satay as an appetizer. I would tell you more of my choices, but I cannot remember what they were called.

We found this pond/lake in northern Ames where we took an evening stroll on Saturday night with a stop off at our favorite midwestern treat hut, the DQ. I had a chocolate cone.

Now, you are all caught up on what I ate this weekend.

See, now THAT is how I mark my days too... in what I ATE. :) I think the Des Moines farmer's market is a wee bit more exciting than the Grand Forks one... oh well. I am trying not to be jealous. At least we've got DQ!
