Happy Monday! I've been wanting to do something different for a while. Kinda like a "stay-cation". So, Fred and I decided that we would take a challenge to only eat at local businesses over the weekend.
We kicked off our "local only dining" weekend with my mom's birthday dinner at Flight. The concept of a "flight", meaning 3 small choices, was pretty cool. And let me say, the food was absolutely delicious.

Since we usually don't get up and eat breakfast on Saturdays, we headed out to Swanky's Taco Shop, our usual Saturday lunch spot. As usual, it did not disappoint. Fred had the tacos and I had a burrito bowl. Unfortunately, I forgot to take a pic.
Saturday night, we tried Le Chardonnay in Overton Square. I had a pizza while Fred had sliders. We both really enjoyed the food and we will be back.
And we ended the night with a trip to our favorite local fro yo place, YoLo.
Sunday after church, we headed to Owen Brennan's for brunch. We went to Owen Brennan's for NYE, but we'd never tried their brunch buffet. Let me tell you, it was simply amazing!
And we finished up our "local's only" weekend with a birthday dinner at Fred's parents. His mom ordered BBQ from one of Memphis' top BBQ restaurant, Corky's, and we had a yummy dinner to celebrate her birthday.

We had a busy, but great weekend. And it was a little challenging to eat all local, but it was fun. We tried a few new places and indulged on some of our favorites.
What did you do this weekend?
