Gryos and Cake

Tags

, ,

The week before Heather’s birthday our mom came down and we celebrated her birthday. We went downtown in search for a restaurant we haven’t ate at.
We found Myth Kafe in the Conservatory. They had several different gyros to choose from. The gryos were amazing. I had a little taste of Greece back.

After we indulged on gryos and feta we thought we better have some cake to top it off at Melange Creperie! We let Heather decide on the flavor of cake sine it was her birthday of course.
She wanted the Cookies n’ Cream cake. It was delicious. I could have had the whole thing myself but glad we split it. It was a huge slice!

We went to Discovery Green to walk off that food! It was a great day of celebrating for Heather’s birthday!

Sautéed Kale w/ Onions & Garlic

,

Kale is one of my go-to foods that I buy every time I go to the grocery store; however, I sometimes don’t get around to eating it and it becomes a little limp (so it’s not very good raw). This is perfect for whenever you want to use the whole bunch up before it goes bad!

Sautéed Kale w/ Onions & Garlic

Ingredients
– 1 bunch of kale
– 1/2 onion
– 1 tbsp garlic, minced
– 2 tbsp coconut oil
– red pepper flakes (optional)

Directions
1. Heat coconut oil in pan over medium high heat.

2. Add onions and sauté for four minutes.

3. Add kale and garlic to pan and sauté for another six minutes, until kale and onions are soft.

4. Garnish with red pepper flakes and serve!

Heather’s Birthday!

Today is Heather’s 34th birthday and this past weekend, some friends and us went camping at Huntsville State Park in Huntsville, TX!!!

(L to R) Andrew & Heather / Holly, Robb & Minnie / Katie, Greg & Pepper / Hannah & Andy

Huntsville State Park is only about 1.5 hrs north of Houston, so we all drove up after work on Friday. After setting up our tents, we ate sausage wraps for dinner with s’mores for dessert, then hung out around the fire the rest of the night!

After we ate breakfast burritos Saturday morning, we decided which hike to go on. We picked the 5-mile trail around the lake! Whenever we got back to our campsite, we ate sandwiches for lunch and lounged around because we were all so exhausted! Later, Andy and Robb decided to go fishing, while Andrew and Greg went to the Trading Post to pick up more ice and firewood. Us girls were still in lounging mode, so we opened up some red wine and had #sistersister time while the guys were gone. That night, we cooked chili in the dutch oven and made Frito Pies!! Everyone loved them! We also had more s’mores that night too.

It was drizzling Sunday morning when we woke up, so we decided we better pack up before we get caught in the rain! It was such a fun weekend so we didn’t mind heading out a little bit earlier than expected.
