Why? Weekends!

It finally feels like fall in Northeast Ohio, but we didn’t let the chilly weather keep us from enjoying our weekend! On Friday, Jeffrey and I met up with Alicia for a perfect comfort food lunch at Yours Truly.

From Notso fries (cottage fries with cheese, bacon, and sour cream) to chicken noodle soup to the free sundae that came with Jeffrey’s kids meal, Yours Truly never disappoints any age!


Plus, I loved the chance to soak up some time with the momma-to-almost-be!


On Saturday, we met up with my parents for dinner at Creekside Restaurant and Bar. Much like Yours Truly, I’m never disappointed with the food at Creekside, which offers solid choices from pizza to burgers to pasta.

Matthew and I both chose pasta dishes. His was chicken with spinach gnocchi and mine was scallops over garlic chive linguine.

If you find yourself in Brecksville, I highly recommend Creekside. Just be sure you save room for a sweet treat from their dessert case (and make it the cannoli).

After dinner, we went took Jeffrey to Trunk or Treat at St. Basil the Great church. Jeffrey is really getting the idea of trick or treating this year and events like Trunk or Treat are a great way to ease into the experience.

There were so many cute cars (who knew Trunk or Treat decorating was such a big deal?) and delicious candy (my kid is naturally drawn to the Reese’s cups, hooray!) and adorable costumes. My parents passed out Malley’s candy bars, which were a big hit with kids and adults alike.


And Jeffrey’s garbage truck costume was a big hit, too! I never thought I’d have a kid who wanted to be a garbage truck for Halloween, but he’s so excited about it, so what can you do?! I have a complimentary costume that I can’t wait to show you guys!

On Sunday, we continued the fall fun with a visit to Mapleside Farms. From eating donuts to riding on America’s longest slide (I had no idea that was at Mapleside!) to the hayride to the petting zoo, we had a wonderful time!

We stopped for lunch at The Rail, where I was so busy eating my Mojo burger (a custom blend of beef and andouille) and onion rings and bourbon pecan pie, that I didn’t take a single picture. Not only does the The Rail have great burgers, but they are super committed to local products, which I love!

So, that was our weekend! And we have a busy week ahead with even more pre-Halloween activities! How was yours?
