How is your weekend so far? We’re having such an amazing time in Tahoe and it’s not over yet! Sunny, high 40s-50 degree temps, and plenty of…snow? Yes! Spring ski means less crowded slopes, good powder, and it’s H-O-T-T out there! After a half-day ski at Northstar, we’re recovering and vegging (read — Velvet Husband is passed out next to me in sweet slumber!) before we head to dinner and then get our gamble on. More precisely, until Velvet Husband gets his gamble on. I’ll be there for moral support.

For a [small] change, I started yesterday with cinnamon whipped banana oatmeal topped with chia seeds, blueberries and peanut butter. No milk or sugar necessary because the whipped banana is so sweet! I’ll definitely add this to the breakfast rotation eat this everyday for a week because it’s that good.

My kale-banana-chocolate-berry smoothie bowl tasted delish as usual but looked a tad funny, so I’ll instead distract you with my cutesy bowls. Pretty, yes? Take note of the pretty floral pattern, not the odd smoothie! I picked up four of these pretty bowls in Fredericksburg, Texas a few years ago, but I think they’re made in Chicago. Let me know if you’re interested and I’ll get you the specifics. Funny-looking smoothie, seriously cute bowl. 🙂

On the way to Tahoe, we yelped to find a convenient place for dinner, and wow — we were so happy with our choice! We ate dinner at Paul Martin’s American Bistro in Roseville. The servers were So Cal laid back and friendly and the food was unexpectedly delicious for the price. The prices were reasonable compared to what we usually see in San Francisco! We had such a fun little date and even got to sit outside because the weather is much warmer than in San Francisco. Silly husband. 😉

What a fantastic restaurant find for our little jaunt up north! I love Yelp for road trip purposes, don’t you? Do you rely on yelp to find new-to-you restaurants? What are some of the best and worst restaurants you’ve come across on road trips?

Velvet Husband loved his banana cream pie, his favorite-est (new word!) dessert in the world. Nothing on the dessert menu grabbed my attention, so I passed. By the time we got to the hotel, I needed craved a little sweetness, so I had a few peanut m&ms from the snackbar. There’s something to be said for indulging your childhood memories and enjoying a few halloween candy-type sweets once in a while, don’t you think?

Here we are on the mountain today with our super hot helmets! I hope you’re having a wonderful weekend with the people you love! xo
