Restaurant Week

Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend that didn’t pass too quickly. Ours was pretty busy even though we didn’t have anything planned specifically. I just wanted to pop in with a quick recap before getting started on the work week.


So we have been determined to do something “fun” on a weekend for a while now, but things always come up and we end up being too tired to really find something to do. It doesn’t necessarily have to be big. Just something other than meal planning, going to the store and doing laundry, ya know. Well, this weekend we finally decided to plan our errands around what we really wanted to do. My husband had heard on the news that it was Restaurant Week starting Friday and going through next Sunday. Obviously it would take too much time and money to go every day, so we decided to pick one restaurant that neither of us had been to before and go there for lunch. After spending a few (ok, more like 30) minutes to go through the $10 lunch options, we finally decided on Rojo which has both Latin and American food.

When we arrived we were lucky enough to get a parking spot right in front. We also somehow beat the crowd even though we got there a little later than expected. The atmosphere was very laid back which was a relief having an 8 month old with us. You can choose to eat inside or outside and since they have a patio in the shade with overhead fans, we chose outside and the weather was perfect!

The $10 lunch meal was a pretty sweet deal. Each person got to choose three different salsas (they said they were sample size but I wasn’t able to finish them all), and one of three entrees.

For our trio sampler we chose the Tomatillo salsa, Pineapple salsa, Guacamole, Bandito salsa, and two Queso dips because we love queso.

Restaurant Week1

I chose the tomato and basil quesadilla with Parmesan and Monterey Jack cheese.

Restaurant Week4

My husband chose the basil chicken salad-house salad that had a huge scoop of chicken salad on top.

Restaurant Week3

We both left feeling full and like we took advantage of a major deal. Win win!

The rest of our Saturday was spent grocery shopping and making a few returns I have been putting off for way too long.


Our Sunday started off pretty relaxed as we all took our time getting up and then heading over to visit my family. After a short visit and way too much food, we headed out on a mission to find a play mat for the nursery. We have looked everywhere and nobody seems to have them. Finally, we found one today at Walmart of all places. 

The rest of our Sunday was spent watching the Olympics.

That was our weekend in a nutshell. Hope everyone has a great Monday.


What is one exciting thing you did this weekend?

  1. It was good! That sounds so fun. I have never been to Alcatraz but I would LOVE to go someday. I’m sure it was unforgettable.

  2. Oh my that food looks SO good! Walmart just has everything doesn’t it?! So often it doesn’t come to mind and then it’s the only place that has something I needed. So funny. This weekend I went to Alcatraz in San Francisco with my husband. VERY neat experience!
