One of the many perks of staying in condo instead of a hotel (not to mention fresh laundry and the 10am checkout time) is being able to cook meals! Let's face it, if you're on vacation for two weeks, I bet you will crave a homecook meal by day 3 after the vacation excitement starting to wear off.
Chris and I were the fortunate ones that we were offerred to stay at my friend's condo while she was on vacation over the holidays. We really enjoy cooking together and frankly, I personally enjoy a homecook meal more so than eating out (not to mention the MSG and the "meal budget" allocated to "shopping").
Here are some of the meal we cooked while on vacation:
Breakfast #1: pouched egg with smoked salmon, yogurt with organic cranola, and fluffy pancakes
Breakfast #2: this is my birthday breakfast and hence the flowers, card, and chocolate from teuscher (love their packaging). We started with tea, grapefruit juice, and cranola with yogurt and orange.
The meal wouldn't be as successful without these secret weapons! Not to mention the pasta sauces from WS was a total score ($4 each) from the WS Outlet.
