What a great little cafe! I decided on the homemade roasted red pepper hummus sandwich with a side salad. The hummas was GREAT!!! I’m very picky about my hummus – can’t be too dry, too garlicy, too preservative tasting, and this was super. (Which probably means lots of tahini and olive oil!) I ordered my […]

I’ve got a midterm in Medical Terminology tomorrow and I haven’t started studying. It’s a pass/fail course so I’m not that worried, but I need to make this short! Sorry guys!

Lots To Eat!

February 25, 2008

I love it when my lunches naturally take a while to eat (meaning I don’t have to consciously put down my fork). I think I always end up more satisfied by physically and emotionally (which makes sense of course). So for some reason this lunch took me a while to work through (and it helps […]
