This whole city feels like it’s on vacation mode! Woke up early with an appetite (yay) and fixed some breakfast – the last bit of Stonyfield Plain Yogurt combined with a 6 oz. container of Chobani Pomegranate:
Chopped organic gala – Abe wanted whole almonds, I had mine all ground up.
Whenever I eat yogurt with nut butter, I don’t need it to be as sweet?!
By noon we were on the other side of town, picked up our in-laws, and took them to lunch at a Venice fave:
I got my Lemonade usual – 2 salads divied into 4:
Rainbow Kale with sherry and creme fraiche
Brussels Sprouts with shaved parm and balsamic
Watermelon Radish, Ahi Tuna, Snap Peas and Sesame (such a unique dish!)
Chicken Breast with butternut squash, grapes and oregano
This portion size is PLENTY – I was actually pretty stuffed afterwards.
Abe got 3 sides (really 6) and couldn’t finish; I helped him out by sampling the 3 salads I didn’t choose – sugar snap peas, broccoli, and some pasta.
The rest was taken to-go:
Also tried a bite of my father-in-law’s Potato Salad – needed more seasoning.
Everything else was great, as usual. I’ve eaten better Brussels Sprouts, but the Kale is right up there with M Cafe’s!
We took a walk along Abbot Kinney – it feels like a lot of peeps have the day off and are chillin’ with their families. Met lotsa cute dogs too.
Now I’m just hanging at the beach house, digesting before tonight’s dinner! Hope you’re enjoying your pre-T-day with loved ones.
