Girls Weekend

I had a quick girls getaway to Dallas with Mom and Heather in June. We wanted to go before Heather gets too close to her due date. We headed south Saturday morning and ate lunch at La Madeline before going to a cooking class at Sur la table that afternoon.
Mom making pesto

 The class was "fast and delicious on a budget". We made a citrus marinated chicken with a salad, angel hair pesto pasta with broccoli and tuna, pork chops with cider pan sauce, and farro risotto with kale and goat cheese. We had a great time at the class and shopping in the store afterward. I had never made pesto so that was fun to learn!

 After the class we went and checked out Emporium pies . Which was awesome! We got a few pieces to share but hands down we all loved the Ebony and Ivory best!

We browsed around the stores in the area of emporium pies. Its in an interesting location with several other fun restaurants and shops to check out. 

 We went to North park mall after that and then picked up a pizza at Fireside Pies and took it back to the hotel. The pizza was great and I'd totally recommend trying it out! Sunday morning we went to church and then lunch at Pappasitos, then World Market, Ikea, and then home. WHEW! We've done Dallas trips together several times, but it was fun to try to out some new places and do some new things we haven't done before. Thanks so much Mom for spoiling us with a weekend of shopping, good food, and fun times together!(And to Michael for being happy for me to go and having fun with the kids on his own while I was gone!)
