Found the coolest drink at a sushi place the other night: melon cream soda. Tastes like cream soda, but also totally has a melon flavor to it. Quite tasty!
For my husband’s birthday we were going to go to his favorite Indian spot, but they were unfortunately closed (for “inventory” — we hear they’re switching management unfortunately). So instead I got to choose and we decided to go to a Chinese restaurant called Fu Lam Mum which had pretty good reviews on Yelp.
Some random food posts coming up. Tried this cakey appetizer at a local Persian restaurant. No, I didn’t know it was green before I ordered it. Can’t remember what it was but it was all vegetarian and didn’t have much taste. I’m sure if I saw the name I would remember. But I won’t be…
This is the salty plum soda at Evergreen Garden in SF. I love trying newthings so I had to get it. It was interesting. Not as weird as you mightthink but kinda salty yet sweet. Kinda like yogurt covered pretzels but notquite that good either.
For my housewarming party I went a little crazy baking cupcakes. It’s what I do. The flavors were s’mores (chocolate with marshmallow–my fave), English toffee, vanilla chai and a secret flavor! We had a little contest to see if people could guess the cupcake flavor. Since you can no longer taste them, I’ll just tell…
Catching up on some pictures I wanted to post. This one was obviously from St. Patrick’s Day. We had a cupcake making event at work. I came in late because of a meeting and only had about 5 minutes and this is what I was able to accomplish. My chocolate shamrock on the far left…
They sell wine at the airport pizza place! I love France. Had to try it. Look at this classy meal 🙂

This was a waffle I had in Belgium, making it a Belgian waffle. The waffles there are different than in the states, even though we call them Belgian waffles. The dough they use of there is more of a dough than a batter. It makes it delicious and chewy. And the chocolate doesn’t hurt.
I’m not really sure what these are other than knowing they are called profiteroles. But it was pastry and chocolate and good.
