Loves of Late
Family time: My parents were taking a quick vacation in Philadelphia this week and I took a mini road trip and drove up to spend the day with them! I love the Magic Garden mosaics.
TV: Rizzoli and Isles is on it’s final season and we have been loving it. It is the most unrealistic of the cop shows that I enjoy but it’s also very funny and heartwarming. All seasons are streaming on Hulu and I highly recommend going back to the beginning and giving it a watch. Also, the first three episodes of Documentary Now. Adam and I thought the 1st season went quickly downhill but the very first episodes are comedy gold.
Coffee: the beans we bought at Birch are fantastic, even when brewed in our crappy coffee pot at home.
Every time I go to Reading Terminal I hit Old City Coffee.
Also in Philly, I finally tried La Columbe.
Stuff: My new planner! I love new planners in general because I’m a dork but this one has shiny cut outs on the front. (from Blue Sky, fyi, but I couldn’t find it listed on the website)
I also just bought a shirt with cut outs on it, apparently that’s my summer trend.
The day I visited my parents we walked around the city all day and it was just so darn hot that we ended up buying me a new outfit so I could take the world’s most refreshing shower before dinner.
Coffee, duh! More cups than were shown above, obviously.
Terrible picture of the yummy pecan pastries a coworker brought it. She cut back on sugar which can leave baked goods overly tough but these ended up tasting like a pastry-scone hybrid.
Yogurt bowl – plain Greek with chopped red plum, granola, chia, and sprinkles.
Oatmeal bowl – with dark chocolate cacao nibs, chia, and coconut butter. Plus an apple on the side.
Chia pudding. The fizzy coconut water was horrible, btw.
When in Philly, (chicken) cheesesteak.
Pocky stick snack.
Turkey cheese roll ups.
Dinner at Devon Seafood with my parents.
I had the bouillabaisse.
Chipotle night, midweek road trips tire you out. My burrito was stuffed with chicken, pinto beans, peppers, cheese, sour cream, corn salsa, and lettuce.
Best for last, the one thing I actually cooked myself!
White quinoa / red lentils with lemon, tomato paste, and ginger / roasted zucchini and garlic sautéed mushrooms.
Have a great weekend!
