*So I failed to publish this on Friday.. ha! Anyway, HAPPY EASTER EVERYONE!!!!
Hello, dolls!! Happy weekend!! ❤ Another week flew by…aah I can’t believe it’s almost April — our anniversary month!! 🙂 The rest of the year is going to be amazing but I know for sure that the best months will be April, May, and June! It sounds random (I know) but thinking about meeting our baby in 3 months is giving me so much excitement!!
Majority of my Facebook friends are posting about Holy Week in the Philippines. It’s making me miss home more and the things that my family and I would do during Holy Week. It’s been a while since I did “Visita Iglesia” — and how it becomes a food trip adventure after. I miss our “staycations” and how we would observe the religious practices each day. I miss how it’s not about Easter baskets and brunch. Ahhh…home.
Anyway, this Easter weekend is going to be pretty good! A and I are going on an adventure tomorrow. I can’t wait!
Right around April, I get nostalgic about the things that we did when we became a couple and the adventures that we went to celebrate our anniversary.
One of our favorites? Emporiyum!
We attended the first Emporiyum event in Baltimore 2 years ago. It was in April, a couple of days after our anniversary so I have this I-love-Emporiyum-because-it’s-our -thing- feeling”.
A couple of months after their successful April event in Baltimore, they held one in Washington DC. We were excited because it’s bigger and we can do something in DC after. Perfect!
A & R
“this way please”
I love this! Very creative.
Astro Doughnuts had their truck parked outside the venue.
We took it as “try me first” ha! We tried the maple bacon..because why not?
As we entered the venue I told A that we should have a “game plan” so we can try a least 80% of the food stalls at the event.
Here are our favorites. I took so many pictures that day! But of course I can’t share all 200 of them all here haha
Neopol’s Smoked Salmon
Handcrafted Italian Salami. YUM!
Who can resist tacos? Especially if it looks like this!
Squid Ink Pasta!!! 🙂
Delicious cheddar grits from Geechie Boy Mill
Look at those perfect biscuits!
What goes best with biscuit? JAM!
Mike Isabella from Top Chef had a stall at the event
Now my favorite part….pastries!
I stopped when I saw the cookies. Then I died cause they ave cupcakes and macarons too! OMG
…and of course I tried most of them while going around the all and forgot to take pictures! haha
They have the wittiest cards that I’ve seen!
HARISSA!!! Mina’s mild harissa has the perfect balance of flavors.
Sake Shack time
Super Fry Frickle Dog
Shake Shack collaborated with Gordy’s, a local pickle company from Washington DC.
Cause I love spreads!!!
Delicious covered pretzels! The white chocolate sprinkle is my favorite.
Nothing better than fresh almond milk!
Was so tempted to get one!! But then I realized I could just add it to our registry so I passed haha
More delicious pastries!!
Finally! Laos food is getting promoted here in the US 🙂
…and of course! We wouldn’t miss a chance to try something new from Woodberry.
Apple, Pear, and Quince Hand Pie.
OMG ’em babies!
Paul Qui in the house!!
We love the show Top Chef (and no we do not dream to be on the show someday, we just really love it!) Anyway, seeing the contestants or winners in person is exciting for us because we get to pick their brain even for just a couple of minutes. A likes to talk about us working in the kitchen too…which makes them a little interested.. I guess. haha
Tea!!! Yes please 🙂
Lunc Box by Bryan Voltaggio
Perfect grilled cheese with delicious tomato soup
Unfortunately Milk Bar was already sold out of mostly everything 😦
Mast Brothers!!! Another one of my favorites!!
I love their cookbook!!! Their brownie recipe is to die for and the chocolate tart…aaaah
