This weekend, my mom came up to visit. After such an emotional week and difficult decisions to make, she wanted to be by my side to make sure I was okay. She’s the best. Right when she got here on Friday, we headed to my therapy appointment. The next few hours were spent with a lot of crying by me. But after about 4pm that day, we had THE best time.
I loved mine and she loved hers. So it was perfecto.
It was heavenly. But it was $2.25! For this tiny piece of chocolate! What the flip. It was delicious nonetheless.
First stop was The Oxbow Public Market.
It’s filled with a bunch of different specialty stores. There was an olive oil shop, chocolate shop, wine shop, coffee shop, cupcake shop, produce shop, and lots of other shops. We stopped at the produce shop first but I didn’t get anything. My mom got some semolina flour because she has been really into the whole pasta making thing. She even made ravioli the other day! And I wasn’t there to enjoy it 😦 She also got a hot sauce made with yuzu. It sounded interesting so she went with it.
It was beyond amazing (and that’s why there’s so many pictures 😉 ). I totally see why it’s one of the best things. I also had a latte from Ritual Roasters on the side.
We walked around a bit and since one english muffin didn’t fill either of us up, we went to Pica Pica. My mom got the empenadas (one with chicken, one with queso fresco, and one with black beans & queso fresco).
Now THIS was one of the best things I have ever eaten. It was filled with grilled tofu, black beans, plantains, and avocado.
We were ready to go so we started to head back. But first, we made a pit stop at Barbara’s factory! It was Saturday so it was closed. I have no idea if they give tours or something but if they do, I’ll be back.
The picture was from our second stop but my load included:
-frozen greek yogurt popsicles
-soy nut mix
-Fruit and Nut mix
-dark chocolate acai berries
For dinner, we decided on Lynn’s Thai. I got the pumpkin curry and it was…interesting. It was totally not what I expected. It was more like a soup in a coconut milk broth.
After dinner, my mom taught me how to crochet! I’m still getting the hang of it but I actually like it. It’s therapeutic in a way 🙂
Then this morning, we went out to breakfast before going to church. We went to the Tea Room Cafe and I got the cornmeal waffle with gluten free flour. It was definitely the best waffle I have ever had.
So overall, it was an amazing weekend. Definitely the best I have had in a long time. Good food spent with my favorite person….nothing better 🙂
What did you do this weekend?
