I had a fun lunch date today with blog reader “Kate(the teenager)”!! She lives down in South Carolina not too far down the road and we’ve been trying to do lunch since the spring. She and her mom came up to Charlotte for the day, so we met at Dean & Deluca for lunch. We had loads to talk about – she’s so mature for her age! We both share a love for running and the EarthFare salad bar
I got one of the famous D&D salads – with salmon on top. It was huuuuuuuuge!! The outcome of these salads really depends on who is building them. Since I usually get a little of everything (except onions!) sometimes I literally get one of everything and other times I get 5 of everything. In the past I’ve easily polished off a whole medium box, but today I ate the top 1/3 and brought the rest home for lunch.
- Spinach + mixed greens
- Snap peas
- Garbanzo beans
- Roasted veggies
- Sun-dried tomato
- Mandarin oranges
- Goat cheese
- Pear dressing on the side (which I barely touched)
I left one of the two pieces of salmon and most of the base to have for lunch tomorrow or Sunday.
And a sample of SaraBeth’s Raspberry-Stawberry Jam! Since I got in trouble for whipping out my camera last week I didn’t take photos of the other two samples I had: 2 toffee pieces and a white chocolate pretzel ball for dessert. Gotta take advantage of the free desserts!
I’m wrapping up things on my to-do list and plan to finish my Jennifer Weiner book today. We’ve got a fun vegetabl-y dinner planned too 🙂
