Hiiiiii there! Hope you’re all feelin snazzzy today
I’m not (still have a headache from this weekend — I attribute it to lack of sleep. Don’t give me that look), but now that I’ve spent some quality time at the gym (dying) and tweeting (chatterboxing), I feel a little bit more human.
Since there are a million recap posts on HLS, I am going to give you the pictures and spare you the long details. After all, a picture says a thousand words, right?
Fruit + hard boiled eggs and Oikos = Saturday morning breakfast. Satisfying and deeelish.
Attune spooooon! This will be handy dandy and caaaa-ute in my dorm room, no?
Lunch break! Chickpea-Quinoa Salad atop fresh greens, drizzled with lemon-miso vinaigrette (at least I think that’s what it was).
Some people go to salad bars — we go to sandwich bars. GH bread, Kath approved.
A sampling of every Naturally Nutty nut butter flavor available: Vanilla Almond, Chocolate Cherry, Toffee Something, and another one that was really good. All I cared about was getting dat shit in mah belly.
Us girls at the fountain before dinner!
Our restaurant of choice? Farmicia, a restaurant that uses high-quality local, organic ingredients.
The vibe inside was relaxed, classy, and warm — we felt welcome right away!
After we were seated, I scanned the menu to find options for all tastes — including vegetarians and vegans. The gluten-free options were abundant as well. Although I am no longer a vegetarian, this is always a sign of a good restaurant.
Within a few minutes, we were greeted with delicious, doughy sourdough bread and a garlic-dill whipped butter.
Clearly I went back for seconds.
MaryAnne, me, and Lauren.
Before we dug in, Lauren led a beautiful toast.
Time to eat
I ordered the Sweet Corn Croquettes with roasted red pepper-almond sauce and sauteed spinach leaves. The waitress said it was the hottest item on our menu, so I had to order it. When in Rome!
It was delicious, but I could only eat about half. Those croquettes were huuuuge! (TWSS)
Peanut Butter and Dark Chocolate frozen yogurt topped with crumbled Oreos, chocolate chips, and mini Reese’s cups.
Can you tell I was craving a sweet&salty combo?
The night ended with us girls talking until the wee hours of the night, aka 1:30 am.
My Sunday recap is here, which isn’t that exciting because it was spent mostly sleeping
That’s all for today mah loves, I’m off to have breakfast with Lisaboo! And then I have a lunch date with another girlfriend…and a coffee date. I think it’s safe to say I’m booked solid.
Have a great Tuesday, bloggy boos!
