Last time I went to the newly remodeled Joan’s on Third I promised y’all a proper blog post with lots of pictures.

…because even though it’s right up my alley, I’m not sure we’ll be coming back again. I wanted to go here because I knew they had a “Crown Cake” – similar to the Strawberry Shortcake served at my wedding…

…we got kicked out! Why was I asked if I wanted it to stay/to go if they’re closing in 5 minutes and don’t let people sit there? Luckily our 11th Anniversary wasn’t totally spoiled – we ran into Dawn next door, who snapped this picture of us. We never get photos of ourselves together – not even at our wedding!

P.S. Nice Girls Crew Season 2 is coming April 28th – here’s a peek at the trailer.

Chia Seed Greek Yogurt Pudding

breakfast - recipe - vegetarian

There’s many (vegan) ways to make Chia Seed pudding, but I decided to try it with Greek Yogurt, since we have a whole bunch of Stonyfield.

Emptied a 5.3 oz container of Strawberry into a Mason Jar, along with another container full of Almond Milk, then added 2 packets of Salba Chia Boost (from the November Bestowed box) – equalling a little less than 1/4 cup.

Shook the whole thing up – LID ON! – let it sit overnight in the fridge…

…and in the morning, it was nice and pudding-y.

Topped with Larchmont Farmer’s Market goodies – fresh strawberries, candied almonds, salted sunflower seeds, and stevia (<—it’s not very sweet).  Tasted kinda like Tapioca!

I think this would have been even thicker if I had used all whole chia seeds – I’ve read that the ground version doesn’t work in “puddings” – but I don’t know for sure – maybe the whole seeds did all the heavy lifting!
