What’s up friends!? We are making birthday cards for Grammie in our PJs – tomorrow is her birthday!
Breakfast today was consumed in a rush on the way to preschool – Irish Soda Bread toast with almond butter and oranges. Plus coffee, per usual!
Karen and I ran some errands together during preschool. And then we met Matt for lunch at Mariebette! Karen’s special request since leaving Cville.
I’ve been dreaming about their kale salad for ages.
The Best Lunch Salads In Charlottesville
1) Mariebette’s Kale Salad. It’s huge and filling and the dressing + pecans + veggies in little strips hits the spot. Especially with a croissant on the side!
2) Eppie’s Santa Monica Salad. Have you heard the rumor that Eppie’s is closing? I will die. Please tell me it’s not true. It’s one of my very favorites for lunch – the veg plate or the Santa Monica with cornbread! The Santa Monica has fresh corn, dates, goat cheese, tomatoes, champagne vinaigrette and a side of cornbread or pumpkin bread. Optional chicken! It’s just sooooo good!
3) Tea Bazaar’s Salmon House Salad. Smoked salmon over greens and veggies with candied nuts and a side of herby toasted pita bread. Delicious!
At Mariebette owner Jason brought us this awesome taster – Edmondson cheese + serrano
And Matt shared his smoked salmon + cucumber toast in exchange for 1/3 of my salad. YUM!
We played with our amazing neighbors this afternoon and sipped some vino. Our dining room table is here!!!!!!!!!!!! More deets to come.
Leftovers for dinner. KK went out and Matt and I enjoyed soup and wine.
I’m hoping to sneak in a bubble bath and some reading after putting M in bed. Matt went out to a concert with friends!
