W E E K E N D | R E C A P >> THE SILLY GOOSE
This weekend was special because it was my birthday weekend! I turned the big 2-2. I know everyone says this.. but it truly was [by far] my best birthday EVER. Thursday night was my actual birthday and I got to celebrate with friends from school. We all went to dinner and downtown afterwards, but over the weekend I got to go home and celebrate with my family and Michael :) Flash forward to Saturday afternoon -- Michael and I went to The Silly Goose. It's a ridiculously yummy cafe that serves fresh and locally sourced food in Nashville. You can't go wrong with anything you order from the menu it's just THAT good.Michael ordered "The Bird" minus the goat cheese. It had chicken, sun-dried tomato, avocado, and bacon served on toasted whole-grain bread.I ordered "The Sparky". I wanted to branch out and order something new, but if it's not broken don't fix it, right? The Sparky has turkey, dried cranberries, brie (SO YUM), roasted walnuts, baby greens, and is served in a sun-dried tomato wrap. I also had them put the basil aioli on the side. I'm not a huge aioli person..You can't see it too well here, but we ordered "a little bit of both" as our side. It's a little bit of herbed couscous and a little bit of salad. I'm glad they let you do both because I'm seriously the most indecisive person in the world.. I have a love/hate relationship with having options. Anywho.. the couscous is phenomenal and next time ill be tempted to order one of the couscous entrees instead of a sandwich. But we'll see how that goes ;)
After lunch we walked around downtown Nashville. I got a suuuuper nice camera for my birthday (s/o to mom and dad) and was incredibly anxious to use it! I didn't really know what to take pictures of.. but I was going snap happy. After exploring we worked up an appetite.. or maybe that was just an excuse for our sweet tooth.. so we stopped at Savannah's Candy Store. I wish I had taken more pictures because they had some crazy creations! They let you sample fresh pralines when you walk in the door and I'm not exaggerating when I say they were the best in the world. Michael and I went back for sample #2 when a new chef took over. HA. We finished up the day by heading to church with my family and winding down with some warm vegetarian chili, pumpkin cake, and a movie. Perfect for this terrible, freezing cold weather. Ew.
I hope you guys had a fabulous weekend as well! And if you're ever in Nashville please give The Silly Goose a try!
