My Kingdom For A Coffee

Random things from the weekend…

We tried what felt like a million different coffees.  I have yet to find a local ready-made option that can keep up with Grady’s.  Iced Vietnamese latte from Cville Coffee.

Muddy Waters was meh.

But much improved with a large scoop of violet marshmallow ice cream!

We had really good bagels at Bodo’s.  Everything with olive cream cheese.  They are made fresh all day long and the texture is perfection.

And only ok doughnuts from Duck.  Strawberry glazed with rainbow sprinkles and marshmallow drizzle.  I did not like that they were served fresh – aka hot – because it ruined the frosting.

I made a delicious vegetarian dinner.  Cauliflower rice roasted in the oven / baked extra-firm sprouted tofu / scallion peanut salsa loosely based on this recipe.

I am incapable of having peanuts in the house and not eating five plus handfuls per day.

We went back to Maya and loved it a 2nd time!  We had two fantastic appetizers: a local mushroom plate with Sharondale Farm mushrooms, pork belly (for Adam!) spring onion grit cake, buttermilk curd, sunflower seed and sundried tomato pesto, and lemon parsley aioli // pimento cheese fritters(!!!) with hot pepper jelly and chive sour cream.

I had the crab cakes for dinner, with sweet corn and green tomato chow-chow, smoked onion aioli, and mache.  Plus sauteed broccoli and leafy greens.

And we somehow also ate peanut butter fluff pie for dessert.

How is it possibly already August this week??!
