Hello! Sorry I didn’t put up my usual weekend post. Swanky boyfriend and I enjoyed happy hour, I had dinner with the family and caught up with friends. I was camera free all weekend and it was nice to take a mini break and just enjoy!
I did bring my camera last night for dinner with friends! We enjoyed dinner at Red Velvet Café. I had been to a smaller location at the Fashion Show Mall, but not at this larger location. I was so excited!
After perusing the menu, I was surprised how many options had meat. I know the desserts are vegan so the mainly meat filled menu was a bit surprising. The good thing is that they have many substitutions!
I thought I would change it up and went with something really different…spiced broccoli slaw chicken burger.
A grilled chicken burger topped with spice broccoli slaw, spicy house dressing, mozzarella cheese and roasted tomato.
The sandwich was huuuge..and messy! Not a good first date food, but thankfully I was with my ladies so I could be as messy as I wanted.
But, the flavors were amazing. The combination of the cold creamy slaw paired well with the tangy dressing.
And there was melted cheese in. every. bite.
I practically finished the whole thing it was just so good!

Of course, I couldn’t eat at Red Velvet Café without having a piece of red velvet cake, now could I? Their cakes and cookies, as I mentioned, are vegan. Now, I have
tried baking vegan goodies before and they just don’t turn out. I don’t know what they put in their desserts, but you sure wouldn’t be able to tell they are vegan! While my friend enjoyed this piece, I took the same one home for swanky boyfriend to enjoy.
I thought I would change it up and went with vegan red velvet cookies. They serve them warm so they are super soft and the chocolate chips just melt in your mouth.
I enjoyed one and boxed up the rest!
It was such a great night! I really enjoyed getting the chance to catch up with my gals!
Other Swanky Scoop:
My foot has finally started to feel better (it’s been forever!) but I didn’t want to push it too much tonight so instead I did a little workout paired with some yoga at home.
I did 4 different moves each for 1 minute.
- Speed Skater
- Mountain Climber
- Inchworm With Pushup
- Squat Jump
I went through 4 sets in no time!
Although it was a small workout, it felt great to be moving! Yoga was the perfect end to it. It feels so great to stretch, doesn’t it? I am going to try my first run tomorrow on the treadmill. Can’t wait
to get back into it! Since not being able to work out, I am definitely falling into the wintery slump.
Thanks for reading!
