This week has been way more emotional than I ever expected. I really didn’t think I would be so attached to a house, it’s just some We have finally finished moving everything out of our house and into our new condo/ my parents’ house. Yep, you read that right…we’ve moved into my parents’ house until Josh starts school and I can find a job in Columbus. My parents have been really wonderful to let us move in with them, but it’s been an adjustment for all of us. We all have of our own time-tables and routines and doubling the number of people and dogs living under one roof has been interesting/kind of uncomfortable/weird. It’s only (hopefully) for a little bit longer and it’s going to be a great lesson in patience and adjusting to uncontrollable situations. It’s funny how God always has a plan in place and a lesson to teach us.
How can they be so cute yet so rotten at the same time?!
I was very excited to FINALLY make it back to CF Ripcord for the first time in 3 weeks and see all my friends! We had a fun workout with all the wall ball shots, rope climbs, pull-ups, and running you could ever want. It was actually a super hard workout, but it felt so good to be back with everybody I didn’t care!
Saturday afternoon was spent getting all our meal prep for the week done. We’ve kind of been on a crazy schedule with running back and forth to Ohio these past few weekends, so it was really great to actually just be back in a somewhat normal routine. After meal prepping, it was time for us to get ready for one of my best friend’s birthday dinner. We had decided that we were coming down to Louisville, but weren’t sure where to eat. I had been recommended to Mayan Cafe by my coworker and none of us had ever eaten there (although I have heard several good things about it), so we thought why not give it a try? Josh and I had the salbutes of the day for our starter. The daily salbutes was a flash fried corn tortilla with a black bean purée, chorizo, slaw, and a jalapeño cream sauce. I was hesitant about the purée because I really dislike any kind of beans, but the salbutes were surprisingly delicious! The tortilla was crispy crunchy and the jalapeño cream sauce had the perfect slow heat to complement the chorizo and black bean purée.
For an entreé, I had the chilaquiles. They were the best dish of everything ordered, in my opinion. The chilaquiles were pieces of housemade tortillas smothered in a tomato casera sauce with chunks of potatoes, cactus, eggplant, cauliflower, and grilled poblano peppers, sprinkled with queso fresco, and drizzled with jalapeño sauce and sour cream. So. Good. I will definitely be ordering these again!
Josh ordered the rabbit for his entreé. I’ve always heard mixed reviews about rabbit, but again I was pleasantly surprised that it was really tasty. The rabbit was oven-roasted with a pumpkin seed mole and grilled cactus over a beans and cheese stuffed tortilla.
You know how we do while in Louisville…a trip just isn’t complete without stopping in to Louisville Cream for dessert! I had an ice cream cookie sandwich. I know, I know, the same thing I ALWAYS get. I really tried to switch it up, but it got me again. I went with a salted chocolate chip cookie, a Reese piece cookie, and the Vanilla 2-ways ice cream. Simple, yet soooo satisfying!
Josh had the Haute Fudge sundae with the Bourbon Smoked Pecan ice cream. I might have snuck a couple bites of that thick fudgy gooey brownie with hot fudge. I just couldn’t help myself.
We finished up the evening with a few of our Ripcord friends enjoying a backyard fireworks show and the yummiest s’mores (they were the yummiest because they had the most jumbo marshmallows and Hershey’s dark chocolate squares *drool*). It was such a fantastic end to our wonderful Saturday!
