Brunch is for owls

Brunch: Noun, A late morning meal eaten instead of breakfast and lunch. Also known as, the event Christine likes because she sleeps so late.

4/13: Acme bread french toast dusted with powder sugar and covered in strawberries and maple syrup

There's a food truck that drives around my company's campus delivering different goodies ... which, btw, I think is the coolest thing ever. Today's treat was red velvet cupcakes! I would like to take this time to thank my co-worker who asked me to drive to this building for her. I wouldn't have run into the truck if I didn't.

And as if the red velvet cupcakes weren't indulgent enough - I ventured away from my "eat-less-carbs" goal and dined on:
  • an incredibly rich beef slider stuffed with foie gras (italicized for emphasis on decadence)
  • a refreshing mix of spring onion & blue vein cheese on a toasted baguette slice
  • crab-stuffed cucumbers
  • pork belly on a bed of creamed polenta, drizzled with balsamic vinegar
  • salami + chorizo + cheese spread
All at a pleasant wine-tasting. That's one way to make Wednesdays more exciting! Alas, no pictures, because I'm a fool and forgot my camera. But here are a couple snapshots of my lunch today ...

4/14: Pork Adobo Tacos with Spicy Asian-Pickled Vegetable

and Chilled Cherrystone Clam and Mussel with sake mignonette (sake, champagne vinegar, lemon, shallot, parsley, ginger, white soy sauce) and cocktail sauce. Fancy pants!
