Hello friends! Happy weekend! For the last weekend that my sis was here, we went to Seattle and browsed Pike place. We love the Market! It’s such a tourist destination but you’d be surprised that a lot of locals still visit the area on a regular basis. Before heading to the market we first had lunch at our favorite pizza place in Seattle “Serious Pie”. If you love gourmet pizza you have to try this one. It’s so worth it! We always order their Penn clove clam, pancetta and lemon thyme (my fave on their menu). It’s a small place so don’t be surprised if you’ll share tables with strangers. After our lunch, off to the market we went to eat more food! We stopped at Le Panier to get macaroons and coffee. My sister bought an over priced roast sweet corn ($5 each!) I didn’t want to participate in that nonsense! HA Surprisingly, the line was crazy long! Photo overload about to happen:
Flowers at Pike Place Market are the best!
As if we didn’t eat too much that afternoon, we decided to stop at Triple X to get their Pineapple Banana milkshake.
Hi everyone! When my sister visited us it was her birthday week, so we treated her at a steak house. She wanted to try something other than John Howie’s (our favorite), since we went there the last time she visited. So we decided to go to Daniel’s Broiler in Seattle. It has a nice ambiance (water view of Lake Union), decent steaks (a little overpriced in my opinion), live music, and great service. It’s a nice place to celebrate a birthday! Last time we had dinner here, they over cooked the Hubs steak, so I was glad that this time they got it right! After we enjoyed a scrumptious dinner, it was nice of them to give my sister a complimentary chocolate molten cake (very rich!) for her to enjoy/celebrate her birthday with. We decided to share her dessert because we were all so full already. Another lovely dinner shared with family!
Hi everyone! How are you all doing? We’re all doing great here, enjoying a nice summer week in the PNW (sunny all week!) and having a restful August. We’ve had such a busy July. I’m posting about our trip to Leavenworth last month when my sister visited us. We all love this little Bavarian town (2 hours drive from our house). It’s such a darling place to spend the day. Fun shops, good food and cozy ambiance is what I always associate with Leavenworth.
We had lunch at the famous Munchen Haus! As always the line was long, but their service is always quick so no worries there. We enjoyed some brats( I had the Jalapeno and Cheddar sausage! YUM!!), pretzels (according to Hubs he prefers Auntie Annies! HA!) and fresh squeezed lemonade. Aside from the food and the atmosphere, I really loved that they are pet friendly, so it was no problem having Riley with us.
Hello Friends! It’s been a while since my last post. July was super busy here, there’s always an activity every weekend for us. My sister visited us for a week, we visited Leavenworth, we had my Hubs childhood friend and his family one weekend, and another weekend we celebrated my Sis In Law’s birthday. I’m looking forward to have a restful and not so busy August.
Anyways, when my sister visited we took her out to one of the “famous” buffets here in Washington. The Falls Buffet at Snoqualmie Casino. Every Tuesday night is their King Crab Buffet ($36.95 +tax/person). We went together with our friends Faye and Roger and their kids.I personally think it’s worth it for the amount of crabs we enjoyed that night. They also have other options like asian cuisines, pizza and pasta, Prime Rib. People lined up because of the crabs. I’ve only been here during their Crab buffet and we always had a good experience. We will most likely be back here sometimes when we have family and friends visiting who wants to eat some king crabs!
