3rd Annual Bacon & Beer Classic

I don’t drink beer. But I love Beerfests. And bacon. I love bacon. The Bacon and Beer Classic is a yearly tradition – we purchase the VIP passes and sample sips of craft beer while noshing on bacony bites at Citifield. I can’t think of a better way to spend 5 hours. Click through for more pics!

Montjuïc, Sagrada Familia, Mercat Santa Caterina, Park Güell, Casa Mila, Las Ramblas, & Quimet y Quimet!

Yes. We saw all of this in one day. I can’t believe it either.

This was one of my favorite days spent in Barcelona. It was insanely busy but I enjoyed it nonetheless. The only thing is that I wish we could have spent more time at Park Güell. That and have a bigger stomach so I could have gorged more at Quimet y Quimet.

Leinenkugel’s, Sprinkles, & Easter Bread!

Have you guys ever been to Total Wine? It’s in New Jersey and it’s amazing. They have a huge selection of liquor, wine, & craft beer! Stopped by to restock Brian’s Leinenkugel Summer Shandy stash and it took a lot of discipline to NOT buy crates of Vouvray. If you’re ever in the area, I highly recommend paying them a visit.

Visited a friend of mine who just bought a house in upstate New York. She made this cake and the Easter Bread below. So delicious. I don’t bake because I hate anything that has to do with measurements and precision (also why I don’t sew but that’s a whole other discussion.) Also, my pantry isn’t stocked with any baking staples because I threw everything out when I switched to organic and I haven’t gotten the chance to hoard. Not that I need to anyway, I try to avoid sweets like nobody’s business.

Anyway, she packed some leftover bread for me to take home so I reheated them on the griddle & served them with caramelized bananas! All of that with a hot cup of coffee for Sunday’s breakfast and I was ready to tackle the day.
