It’s winter out there!! I was freezing waiting for the lightrail and the bike ride home was frigid. And there’s a mean wind too. I will be bundling up in a coat and gloves for my next bike ride event of the day!
The husband and I ventured uptown today to meet blog reader Farah for lunch at Pewter Rose! She was joined by her friend Veronica. I enjoyed meeting both of them and hearing about their experiences living in lots of different cities
As luck would have it, Pewter Rose was serving their A.mazing Butterscotch Scones again. But this time instead of gobbling mine down I had a third of it and gave the rest to the husband. I wasn’t as hungry as I was last time I was there, so it was cool. But then I had another bite of Farah’s at the end of lunch!
I debated and debated on what to order. I really wanted the hummus platter that I had last time, but I decided I should branch out. So I ordered the Waldorf Salad with blue cheese, pecans, pears and a raspberry vinaigrette topped with a piece of seared sockeye salmon. Also on the side – a fried green tomater! I ate most everything on my plate, sans 2 shares of salmon and the dressing.
My tablemates ordered:
A Waldorf Salad with grilled chicken for Farah (I had a chicken bite)
A spicy Chorizo Omelet with hash browns for the husband (I had 2 bites)
And the Bananas Foster Stuffed French Toast with Rum Butter Cream for Veronica! SO GOOD!!
She was kind enough to share some with me
But even after all of that, I still left feeling a little empty Farah and I both wished our salads were heavier on the greens.
So 45 minutes later I’m home and sipping a cup of tea and dug into the Maple Pecan Granola. This stuff is SO GOOD!!! I had 4 handfuls straight from the container..
I need to be disciplined and get some studying done for my back-to-back midterms this week before I venture out again for dinner/drinks. I’m making the house study-friendly with Pandora jazz and candlelight. I wish the sun would come back out too, but I suppose this gloom fits the study ambiance.
