Weekend Recap: 10/4/15

Hello hello!

I hope you all enjoyed the first weekend of October! It was kind of interesting weather here in Nashville. The temperature dropped dramatically, and we were all suddenly in fleece and boots! It also rained nonstop, but the sunshine came out this afternoon and the temp was back up to 78! I think it’s going to be quite warm this week, too, but the couple days of Fall weather was both unexpected and lovely!

So this weekend, my in-laws were in town and it was a ton of fun! They’ve never visited us before (they have been to Nashville a couple times, though), so it was a lot of fun to show them around to our favorite spots. We did the Nashville Food Tour, Caitlin and Andrew style, and it was pretty fantastic. Here’s the list of eateries we had to hit up! There’s quite a lot of great food in this city, so we had to pack as much as we could in two days. Definitely didn’t even make a *huge* dent, but they got a good taste of the scene, I think!

Frothy Monkey. Coffee AND food on there is on point. We love going for dinner because it usually isn’t crowded at night! We ended up grabbing coffee and going elsewhere for food, because the wait was 45 minutes!

Sloco. Delicious and healthy sandwiches made with local ingredients.

SkyKing Pizza. Ok so, this place is a recent find and it’s not in Nashville actually. It’s in Kingston Springs, which is about 20-30 minutes outside of the city. It’s honestly the BEST pizza I’ve ever had anywhere in the U.S. Not to mention, the service is impeccable. It’s a small town, so they’ve got the Southern hospitality down pat. After you feast on all sorts of delicious pizza, you have to get the chocolate chip cookie skillet! Warm, gooey chocolate chip cookie baked just right in a skillet with two scoops of vanilla ice cream on top! YEAH. I know.

Blvd: This is a place I discovered in college, since it was right across the street. Really yummy, upscale modern food in a way. We went for Brunch today and it was lovely. I got a small quiche (it was so cute!), and it had Brie cheese and Asparagus baked into it, and was paired with a raspberry jam on the side. The others got biscuits and gravy with eggs. Definitely recommend this spot for any meal!

Local Taco: Great Mexican food. Everything is good, and the Queso is on point. There are three locations in Nashville; we love the new East Nashville one the best!

Jeni’s Ice Cream: Oh, Jeni’s. You just won’t understand until you go. It’s FANTASTIC.

Yeah so we went pretty hard with the Food Tour in two days but it was a lot of fun! In between all the eating, we did lots of other fun things. Here are some pictures!

So, that was our weekend! A perfect mix of great food, relaxation, exploration and family time. What did you all do this weekend? Let me know down below!

Hope everyone has an awesome Monday!

    Looks like a great weekend! Food tours sound yummy. We tried to do one this weekend while we were on vacation at the beach but it was sold out.
