Balancing Productivity and Fun

My goal for the weekend had been to get caught up with work and around the house. I got a lot of my grading and prep work done on Friday, but unfortunately there was still a lot left for the weekend. There was also plenty of laundry, grocery shopping, errands, and some “cleaning up” projects.

But thrown in with all the work, we also had lots of fun this weekend.

On Saturday, we checked out the food truck meet up Moveable Feast near the Garden City Casino in San Jose. We didn’t stay very long as the toddler kid was in need of a nap, but we did stay long enough to enjoy the bulgogi over rice plate from the hiyaaa truck. The toddler definitely got his “rice fix,” and we all enjoyed the dish.

In addition, he tried a banana fritter from the Wow truck, which he loved. We also ran into Bill from the Food Truck Nerd blog and chatted a bit. Bill does awesome podcasts about food trucks, and it was fun to talk to him.

Later on in the day, we were invited to dinner by friends. The Wienerschnitzel, potatoes, Brussels sprouts, and salad were delicious! I’ll definitely have to make Wienerschnitzel soon!

The toddler had continued to carb load with bread before dinner, so he played rather than ate when dinner was served. Since it’s not an every day occurrence, we let him be a kid.

On Sunday, we were invited to a birthday party and had more great food.

I posted our weekly menu as well as some workouts I have planned on my Facebook page. It’s pretty low-key this week. I hurt my foot last week, and I’ll have to see how it goes…

Questions: What was the highlight of your weekend? What was the best thing you ate? I really enjoyed the Wienerschnitzel as well as the spring rolls at the birthday party.

Be well,
