I’m here!! Looks like we’re going to have great weather. It’s totally FALL here – I don’t know if I should be wearing any tank tops or shorts, but that’s all I brought!
At your recommendations, we went to Flour Bakery for lunch! OMG it was so delicious!! I ordered a homemade raspberry seltzer (light on the raspberry) to drink. It was so refreshing.
Larbs and I each got a cup of carrot-coconut soup. It was great too – lots of flavor but not cream based so it was lighter.
And we split the best sandwich of 2008 thus far: a Portobello Mozzarella Pesto Panini! It. was. so. good!!!!!!!!!!
My half –
And because I’ve seen Cristin at Eat Like Me eat these Flour “Granola Bars” for a year now, I had to see what they were all about!
We got one and each had a 1″ sliver (brought the rest home for Larbs’ Matt)
It was quite good, but Larbs and I both agreed that if we’re going to have a dessert this rick we’d like either chocolate or icing to be involved.
You can guess the first tourist attraction I wanted to visit: Whole Foods!! Not only do we not have one in Charlotte, but the plans to get one aren’t looking good (we were supposed to get one in 2006 but the real estate fell through). It’s just so much more packed with brands than EarthFare is…
I had 2 samples – a cookie (who can turn free cookies down!?) and some dried/crunch green beans that were awesome! I looked for the PB Cookie LaraBar – no luck. And of course I wanted to buy tons of things but have to fly home 🙁
We’ve already done over an hour of walking today, and have plans to walk 3 miles to Harvard Square for dinner! I’m sure getting in good exercise. Walking is the best (and probably worst, at times) part of city living 🙂
