Weekend in DC

Weekend in DC

If you follow along on my Instagram or read my last post you would know that I’ve been in DC for the past weekend! 

Of course we visited some memorials and indulged in delicious foods such as these amazing homemade pop tarts from ‘Teds  Bulletin.’ I do not think I have ever tasted a pop tart so delicious! If you’re ever in the capital hill area you must stop by, if even just for the pop tarts! 

 Besides the delicious bakery section, their main course foods were just as good; as I feasted on this HUGE breakfast burrito! 

 I would have to say the Capital Hill area was by far one of my favorite places we visited. The area had so many little boutiques, bakeries and restaurants, as well as this pretty mural that we stopped to take a photo by.  Another one of my favorite places in this area was Georgetown. The University was absolutely breathtaking and looked like something out of A fairytale.

   Even the homes in Georgetown were pretty and colorful.  Just walking down the streets and looking at the homes was entertaining. 

 After Georgetown we had even more delicious food. One thing I had to have while here was sushi so we visited ‘The Sushi Bar,’ near Alexandria. And it was so good!  
 And of course knowing me, I had my fair share of icecream and when I spotted a Ben and Jerrys down King Street I indulged.  

 Besides all of the good food, we wandered through DC and stopped at some breathtaking monuments such as the Lincoln Memorial.  

  DC is definitely a place of history and everyone should take time to visit. It’s a gorgeous town and well worth it. 🙂 

Stay tuned for more this week.

Homemade Biscuits

Homemade Biscuits

A delicious breakfast I have been enjoying these past couple days is some homemade biscuits or fry bread. It’s super easy to make, takes about 10 or 15 minutes from start to finish and it’s delicious!
This amount of ingredients makes 5 medium sized biscuits.
2 cups flour
1 tbsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 cup shortening or partly melted butter
1/2 cup warm water
Mix the dry ingredients first, then slowly add in the water and shortening until you get something like this

Next get a skillet and add some olive oil and place whatever sized dough you would like in the skillet

After a few minutes flip your biscuits. It should be golden brown on the cooked side

Once the biscuits look good to eat add whatever toppings you would like.
This morning my mother and I topped our biscuits with butter, homemade rhubarb jam and peanut butter.

A Quick and Delicious Breakfast Treat

A Quick and Delicious Breakfast Treat

Breakfast, the most important meal of the day!

I always make sure I start my day off with a nice big breakfast, and I like to be quick about it. Therefore, my breakfast meal is usually the same every morning. But I am still not tired of it!

If you want to find out how to make a delicious breakfast in just over a couple minutes then keep reading!

Ingredients:

My Nature’s Path Oatmeal is by far my favorite. It only takes 75 seconds in the microwave and all you need is a 1/2 cup of water!

Once my oatmeal is done I take it out and add however much honey and cinnamon I am feeling. (Fun Fact: Use your local honey, it helps to build an immunity to some allergies in your area)

Mix it all up and add in your almonds and fruit!

I usually use blueberries, but I love to add banana and strawberry if I am out of blueberries.

Ahhh, the perfect quick and easy breakfast!
