Matt and I both have meetings downtown this afternoon, so he asked me out on a lunch date to add some excitement to this rainy day. We both walked here in the rain – I refuse to drive downtown when we live so close [with the exception being a massive thunderstorm with sideways rain, in which case I probably would just wait until it was over and then walk.]
Our destination was Eppies, one of my favorite lunch spots with a menu of healthy comfort foods.
I alternate between the vegetarian plate (you pick 4 sides plus cornbread!) and the Santa Monica salad that comes with Corn, Spinach, Dates, Tomatoes, Goat Cheese and a Champagne dressing. I added some chicken today.
The best part is the pumpkin loaf that comes on the side!
Matt got the veggie plate with collards, beans and mac and I was a little jealous, but he shared a few bites and I gave him about a quarter of my chicken
HIs best part – cornbread here is like cake!
I’m using the free downtown wifi to work here for a bit – and procrastinate the cold walk home! Perhaps a decaf cappuccino is on the agenda?
Happy Hump Day!
