Mr. Branflake said as we sat down at the incredible Arties in Virginia for their coveted chicken and waffles with a bourbon bacon syrup that will have you asking your waiter for a vat of it with a straw.
That was just the start of my first Saturday off this year.
After chicken and waffles, I met Kristen for a gelato tour at Dolcezza Gelato Factory.
We had gelato fresh from the machine. It was heaven.
We then went to a Franciscan monastery and took a fascinating tour.
They basically constructed a replica of Jerusalem.
And their grounds were covered in bright tulips, so we spent a good half hour outside taking pictures.

Then we ate empanadas at the fabulous Union Market in DC.
So many hipsters, but still a lot of fun.
I went to a birthday party next, so bought some flowers at the market for the birthday girl.
Aren't they gorgeous?
My friend, Niki, made this almond sour cream and cardamom cake with mango curd and mango buttercream, aka heaven.
How was your weekend?
