I am in love with this sandwich shop!!! My meal was the freshest, most delicious combination of flavors!!! I will be eating here LOTS more Wednesdays. It certainly does make them much more fun with the looming Chem Lab at 2pm.
Creamy Tomato Soup. I ate every drop – heavy cream and all. This place is known for its soups. Definitely a “worth it” scenario.
And a spinach salad with goat’s cheese, cucs, almonds, carrots with a scoop of homemade black bean hummus. The DRESSING – oh my gosh. Homemade herb vinaigrette. Made with LOTS of rosemary (and lots of EVOO!). It was almost like a rosemary pesto and was by far the best salad dressing I have EVER had!
And CUPPS is 2 for 2 on the best. hummus. ever. This was black bean with a lemon twist. Nice and beany and not too olive oily. I ate half of my portion and am bringing the other half home. I’m guessing I ate about 1/3 a cup and have 1/4 leftover.
All together with a cup of hot jasmine tea and an apple that I brought but didn’t need to eat. The soup came with a bit of toasted tortilla that I dipped in the hummus. I ate about 25% of one of the salad dressings, all of the salad, all of the soup, and half the hummus.
I am estimating this meal at about 550 kcal. ~250 for the creamy soup cup, 130 for 1/3 cup homemade hummus, 60 for the dressing (1.5 tsp olive oil), and about 100 for the rest of the salad (cheese, almonds, veggies) and tortilla bite. Give or take 100 a suppose.
Here’s my atmosphere!
Cozy and sunny –
This lunch was SO satisfying to the palate AND the brain. I am perfectly full too. I can’t wait for next Wednesday already!
I am off to catch up on some work and then to lab. We are not dealing with any chemicals today!!! I think it’s all on lab report writing and getting into groups for the next few lab meetings. Hopefully I’ll get to leave earlier than 4:30 today!
See you guys for dinner 8)
