After I got out of class on Saturday, Matt came up to 105degrees (he’d gotten in town the night before). He drank this chocolate-espresso martini as I enjoyed a couple glasses of red wine.
We also split a raw brownie sundae. The vanilla ice cream was especially tasty.
This morning/afternoon, guess where Matt and I ended up? Back at 105degrees. Surprise surprise, right?
I drank a kale-carrot-apple-lemon-ginger-parsley juice, while Matt had a Green Hawaiian smoothie (pineapple, young coconut, spinach, hemp, agave, and orange juice).
Matt ordered the Black Cherry Strudel for brunch.
The Napolean-esque pastry sandwiched a warm, ultra-sweet compote reminiscent of cherry pie filling. Vanilla bean cream and candied pecans completed the package.
I chose the Sweet Maple Pancakes.
The stack of thin, nutty-flaxy “cakes” included plenty of fresh blueberries and sliced banana. This was also topped with vanilla cream, and (of course) maple syrup.
It was a very satisfying brunch! Afterwards, Matt and I visited the Red Cup Coffeehouse.
I polished off an Americano as Matt drank his mocha.
Another stop by Forward Foods netted us some pignoli hummus. (I had a craving.)
After that, we went to the Asian mart here, Super Cao Nguyen. It certainly is super-sized.
I finally got myself a cleaver!
I also indulged yet another craving, this one for soy products. (Is that weird?) I got a small carton of soymilk and these weird tofu noodle things I’m looking forward to trying.
Matt and I also got the makings of a quick dinner: broccoli, udon noodles, black bean sauce, and kung pao “chicken.”
They had a freezer full of interesting meat substitutes, and this was our selection.
I hope you all had a great weekend, too!
