Lots of fun things going on this afternoon!
First off was a frozen treat meet-up with Sarah! We met at Splendora’s for a gelato. On the way there, I just wasn’t in the mood for a dessert on a hot afternoon – but after seeing the flavor offerings – I changed my mind.
ROSE + WHITE CHOCOLATE LEMON was maybe the best ice cream combo I’ve had all year. It’s up there with Jeni’s Salted Caramel and the Blueberry Lemon Kohr Bros custard of recent trips! I’ve been so into rose since those Rose #31 products I had in Seattle!
Also totally impressed and happy to see that they use free-range grass-fed cow’s milk and cream in their gelato!
Next stop was a walk to Meade Park to meet Matt at the market!
I helped out for a bit and then headed back to the house to work on dinner.
And a good one it was!
These were supposed to be quesadillas, but I turned them into tostadas when I figured they would be too hard to pick up and eat with all the veggie layers.
I started with Whole Foods whole wheat tortillas, followed by lentils, then leftover roasted peppers, tomatoes, salt and southwestern seasoning and finally – the cheese!
Matt showed me that I had not made tostadas but in fact, they were soft tacos!
We ate them folded over and they were so good! I think it was the summer tomatoes and the super sharp white cheddar!

And a lone leftover zucchini, pan cooked
Aslan watched from The Great Table!
After dinner, Matt convinced me how fun it would be to accompany him to Beer Run for a Lagunitas Tap Tussle!
I kid, he was right – it was fun! Just talking about beer is fun : ) We reminisced about our visit to Lagunitas in 2010. Matt can remember every beer he’s ever tasted and every beer I’ve ever tasted so he was able to describe the ones we tried at the brewery.
Just a few more weeks till I’m tasting again!
We just walked home and my feet are hurting so much from lack of proper walkable footwear. I feel like a nerd when I wear my running shoes on outings, but I really should be wearing them given all this extra weight in ma belly!
