Weekend Update via Instagram ~

Happy Monday! Hope y'all had a great weekend, I know I did :)

On Friday, I had a scrumptious gyro from Tadziki's on King St for lunch. I had heard great things, but wow. I can't believe I had deprived myself of such great food for so long!

I had the Grilled Chicken Gyro with Pesto, Tomatoes, and Feta. A-maz-ing.
Friday night, S and I had a little date night at Cru Cafe. We have heard lots of great reviews, but still hadn't had the chance to experience it for ourselves. A few weeks ago, I put in a reservation so that I knew we would have something to look forward to.
I had the Garlic Scallops with Angel Hair pasta with Fresh Mozz and Spicy Marinara. S had the BBQ Berkshire Pork Osso Bucco with Mepkin Oyster Mushrooms, Haricot Vert, and Mash Potatoes with a Smoked Tomato Demi. Both dishes were to die for.

The reviews were right, I highly recommend it!

On Saturday, S and I made our way out to Mt. Pleasant for the Charleston Mac Off. We sampled somewhere between 15 and 20 different kinds of Mac N Cheese.

Our votes for the best definitely went to Crave, but Poogan's Porch and the Angel Oak Restaurant were close seconds.

The weather was absolutely perfect, couldn't have asked for a better day!

After stuffing ourselves with carbs and dairy, we headed out to purchase a new mattress set for my aching back. We settled on the Prodigy from iComfort by Serta. It is a dream and we cannot wait for it to get delivered!!

I'll be sure to update more about it once we've had a chance to test it out for a bit. I'm super excited as it has gotten rave reviews!

On Sunday, we headed to brunch at Acme Lowcountry Kitchen. I always forget about this great hidden gem, but thankfully remembered and suggested it yesterday. After filling up on delicious breakfast burritos and pancakes, we headed over to the beach for a bit.

The weather was pretty good and I had a feeling it might be our last opportunity to really enjoy the beach for a while. I'm glad we were able to get it in :)

Clearly this weekend was all about great food haha.

What did you all do this weekend?? Anything fun?
