Yesterday was such a perfect fall day! My sister came over and we rode our bikes to our friend Brendan’s apartment since we all wanted to go to the Harvest Festival in Washington Park.
The Honest Weight Food Co-op puts on the Harvest Festival in the park every year. They have music, local food vendors and vegetable stands. It was lovely! The bike ride down was really nice, too.
So much delicious food to choose from!
We also went to the table handing out goodie bags with lots of samples from the co-op!
Of course I couldn’t leave without trying something! I had my eye on All Good Bakers‘ Pumpkin Maple Cinnamon Bun.
I had been looking forward to this all week!
It was massive! I am a big fan of their regular vegan cinnamon buns so I knew this one would be a winner, it was even better than the regular ones if you can believe me. The pumpkin made it moist and the frosting was terrific. I loved it! AGB needs to make these a fall staple at their bake shop. But then again, I would be tempted to get one every weekend.
After checking out some more vendors (I scored a free protein shaker bottle!) we walked around the park because it was just so lovely.
Julie and Brendan wanted sushi, so we decided to walk over to Shogun, the new sushi place on Madison. It is their second location. Their other one is in Delmar.
We split some edamame.
I got one Philadelphia Roll.
This is my new favorite type of sushi, the smoked salmon with cream cheese. Delicious. But, I still think Mr. Fuji was better.
After our quick sushi snack, we got back our bikes and headed back to my apartment. We took the longer way to avoid the traffic. After mapping it out, we biked a total of about 12.5 miles. At least I got in some cross-training today! The pro of biking to an event: you don’t have to worry about downtown parking! The con: you can’t buy too much because it won’t fit in your backpack. Or maybe bring a bigger backpack? Actually, that might be a pro for me!
What did everyone do this weekend?
