Weekend Eats 12-3-12

This was quite a productive weekend between holiday festivities on Daniel Island, shopping, decorating and eating good food.

Friday night, Greg, Zoey and I went to the Christmas tree lighting on DI, followed by dinner at Orlando's Pizza.




We shared this large Hawaiian pizza with ham and pineapple ($17.75). It was huge. Not surprisingly, we managed to have almost half left over that we ended up eating for lunch on Saturday. Overall the pizza was great, but I tend to like thicker crust more than thin crust like Orlando's. Still, the flavor was there and I couldn't complain.

Saturday morning started by supporting another Daniel Island spot, Fired Urth. Greg and I sat outside with Zoey as we sipped our lattes and ate our pastries. I had the Cinnabee latte (cinnamon and honey) and Greg had a caramel latte. To eat, I had a pecan scone and Greg had a cinnamon sugar donut. Everything was amazing. 




When we told them we wanted the order "for here," I was still expecting to-go paper cups for the lattes. So I was pleasantly surprised when the drinks were served in mugs. I was so intrigued by the foam art on top and how it managed to hold its shape as I drank my way to the bottom.

Sunday morning I made biscuits and gravy for Greg, while I wanted something a little healthier. I topped one of the Trader Joe's buttermilk biscuits with one cooked egg and some shredded cheddar cheese. 




Perfection.

My weekend wrapped up with warm, gooey brownies, also courtesy of Trader Joe's. I used their Guilt Free Brownie Mix which calls for fat free yogurt to be combined with the powder mix. I added powdered sugar on top and ate my serving with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. 




Ok, now THAT is perfection. 


What was the tastiest part of your weekend?
