Boy am I ready to sink into the couch after this busy day!
[Kale shirt available here!]
We left the house at 11:30 via motorcade [bikes] to head to the bakery. More walls are up! We have electrical!
And then we met our neighbors, Toan and Betsy, owners of Cville Coffee, for lunch!
Cville Coffee has an awesome menu and atmosphere – tons of sandwiches and salads to choose from.
Matt got the Olive Branch
And I had the Veggie & Bean, – onions + tofu!
This tofu was simply amazing! The marinade and cooking both made it one of the best tofu bites I’ve had!
After our lunch meeting we met a few more neighbors with some loaves – including Tristan and Grace who own a beautiful organic clothing & print store called A Mystery In Common.
We finally left McIntire Plaza and headed home on our bikes. It was freezing and probably dropped 20 degrees since we ran that morning! I was just in short sleeves – brrr! Winter is back.
We turned right around in our car and headed downtown to set up snacks for the United Way board meeting!
Chalkboards and wheatberries at work!
Naturally Nutty represent!
The event was a great success and we were able to meet a lot of people!
A special shout out to Kristin C. in Chicago because her aunt figured out that the “food blogger” Kristin kept telling her about in Cville was ME!
After all the attendees feasted, so did we Mmmmmmmmmmmmm!
After walking up and down the mall delivering a few final baskets, we headed home.
Luckily dinner was a cinch to put together!
These lentils we made with Faith + Tate on January 3 came out of the freezer, into a pot and into our mouths in 10 minutes! Topped with some salty peanuts for garnish. I said they were just OK in the original post, but I LOVED them tonight! They were cooked with ginger, garam masala and canned tomatoes, I think.
On the side we had simple sauteed colllard greens with chopped olives and lemon.
His + Hers drinks, although I definitely chugged some of his!
I’m very excited about going up to read in my cozy bed. After I catch up on a little blog reading first!
