My family has completely opposite schedules. I’m off when my sister’s working, my sister is off when I’m working, my sister works when my mom is off, I’m off when my dad works, etc. But somehow on Thursday the stars aligned and I had a day off when my mom and sister were off as well. I don’t think that has happened since our road trip back in May!
So we decided to take advantage of our luck with a girls shopping day. But first we needed to fill our bellies with some food. We decided to stop at Stoney’s Bread Company in Oakville, which we’ve been wanting to try ever since seeing it on an episode of You Gotta Eat Here.
We got there before noon, but it was already busy! So we hopped in line and had to decide quickly what to order. They have a fabulous pizza menu, but since I just had pizza on Monday, I decided to try one of their sandwiches. Hayley and I split the grilled chicken sandwich with kalamata tapenade, caramelized onions, roasted tomatoes, mixed greens, mozzarella, and feta on focaccia.
It was a pretty ginormous sandwich, so it was the perfect size for splitting. But I almost wish I didn’t split it because it was so good! I loved all the flavours together and the bread was perfectly toasted, but also soft and chewy. Along with half the sandwich, I also had a full size California Baby Field Greens salad with sun dried tomato vinaigrette and asiago. It was really fresh and the dressing was great, but I wish it had come with more vegetables on it.
After lunch we continued on the road to Sherway Gardens to do some damage to our wallets. I’ve griped on here before about how I’m a terrible shopper – I never know what to buy, so I always come out of the mall empty handed (Sam can attest to this). But this time I was successful!
Maybe it was because I had some good shopping fuel: Yogen Fruz! I love that they mix real fruit into their fro yo right in front of you.
This weekend I’ve been working every day, so I’m not doing much else – I’m always too exhausted to do anything after getting off work at 9:30 pm. I hope you all are having more exciting weekends than me!
