We moved! I officially live in Virginia now.
The move itself was kind of terrible but we made it here intact with the dog and most of our stuff so I really can’t complain. And first we took a fabulous trip home to St. Thomas! Complete with highlights of the best banana daiquiri on earth and salmon pattys eaten in the airport with a vodka soda and local beer.
Post-move, once the apartment was sort of set up, I focused on the really important stuff like finding all of the nearby beverage and dessert options. Like La Flor Michoacana – a Mexican dessert place with the most exciting menu I’ve seen in my entire life. I already had a scoop of soursop ice cream (with a scoop of mamey on the bottom)!
And an eggnog paleta.
Sweethaus for a quad iced latte and a crazy good salted caramel cupcake. <– maybe the best frosting of my life.
Grit for Cuban coffee.
Also I loved this locally made fresh mint kombucha.
On the food-food side I don’t have much to share because I’ve done zero cooking both due to being busy and having not moved any of our pots or pans. We’ve mostly been eating junky take-out, and salads at home, and take-out salads. Sweet baby lettuce blend / poppy seed dressing / strawberries / shredded chicken.
Spring mix and herbs / Trader Joe’s sesame soy ginger vinaigrette / shredded chicken / roasted peanuts.
From Fuzzy Taco – romaine / tomato / onion / fajita veggies / grilled fish / shredded cheese / tortilla strips / vinaigrette.
From Roots Natural Kitchen – Arcadian mix / charred corn / pickled onion / roasted broccoli / hard-boiled egg / bbq tofu / cilantro lime dressing.
Wish me luck exploring!
