Hello hello! I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend so far. I know I am!! It was even better this morning because I woke up with a clear + sunny view of the mountains. It has been somewhat overcast lately, so it was a nice change :)
Yesterday, Kelsey and I made our way to Boulder because she had never been there. We grabbed a bite and did a big shopping at the huuuge Whole Foods in Boulder. Then, I got myself completely turned around but eventually got us to Pearl St. to scope out some stores. FUN!
Kelsey got a sweet jacket [in the photo!] from Prana….it was like 75% off…s.c.o.r.e.
Kel[C] in action! She likes to get up close + personal!
Check out this amazing menu and the prices. So fabulous :)
We got the: local roasted beets + crispy polenta with grilled pear + rock shrimp + mussels + fries with housemade ketchup
I had a lovely beverage.
Beets! So earthy and delicious.
Beets stain things!!
Again I used the fries as a device, to scoop the most amazing ketchup ever, into my mouth :)
Oh yeah…these are good!
Crispy polenta and pear. mmm mmm mmmm
Do you see the One shrimp. There were only TWO others. Lame…so lame. Kind of disappointing…
K-girl wanted some mussels…I tried one. Pretty sure mussels are not my thang!!
Ohhh my gaaaaaaaaawd. Dessert = nothing more than amazing
Salt kissed crazy caramel chocolate goodness in an almond crust. Wow. Absolutely deevine. With a side of coffee ice cream with coffee bean surprises.
Words cannot describe. Does anyone know what the little green fruit is?? It was a little smaller than grapes and had the taste + consistency of kiwi. Totally weird!
Guess where we went for dinner? Vine Street of course. Good food and they brew their own beers = no brainer! I love when restaurants offer 8oz pours of beer! I had the Quinn’s Golden Ale which was super tasty.
Veggie and homemade hummus samich with a side of black bean veggie chili. This totally hit the spot! Kelsey and I split our samiches. She had some crazy pig in a pita thing. Realllly tasty!
We came home and did a little food prep for our big day today!!! Stay tuned for tomorrow’s post about our big FOOD night!!!
We are about to eat a magical breakfast and then hop off to the farmer’s market! Shweeeet :)
