I’ve been floating all week. NPR flew out for an early Valentine’s weekend [Editor's Note: "N" indicated that his nom de plume of choice was NPR. I find this quite suitable as--like the radio show--he is quirky, bursting with random facts and fun to listen to. We'll try it out, and we can take it to popular vote if met with disgust]. It was perfect…the food, the weather, the guy…le sigh. Didn’t mean to rhyme there–my apologies, it won’t happen again.
So I decided to touch down to earth today to share a post with you. Yes, I will torture you with my weekend photos, but it will all be worth it for the best bowl of muesli EVER. Seriously. Although I know that I promised all of my posts wouldn’t be about muesli, this one is just too good not to share. But it will be at the end, so you’ll have to wait for it.
The perfect weekend, in my mind? Here’s what my camera thinks.
Trekking to little known parts of Atlanta for a highly recommended fair trade coffee shop.
I splurged with a cappuccino, while NPR went for a green almond tea. Delicious, but didn’t quite measure up to the best cup of coffee I’ve ever had.
I know. I laugh when I say Chattahoochee, too.
Enjoying delicious, homemade meals:
Enchiladas à la Mama Pea. Yes, they are vegan. Yes, they are the best thing ever. Go make them now.
Breakfast tacos, based off of this recipe from My Sprouted Kitchen. Serious yum factor, albeit a bit messy.
And other, unpictured things:
-eating an incredible Tuna Tartare salad at a favorite fine dining establishment
-enjoying delicious homemade chocolate pudding, courtesy of Amanda
-watching Crazy Sexy Cancer and becoming even more inspired by Kris Carr. Ladies, take note: a guy who is willing to sit with you through a TLC documentary is certainly a keeper!
Last, but certainly not least: the BEST muesli I have ever had in my entire life, courtesy of the genius of La Tartine Gourmande. Amazing. I followed her recipe to the T, and trust me, it is worth it! The colors, textures and tastes are perfection. This recipe is a treat from preparation to consumption…it is truly muesli nirvana.
I know, I know.
This is love in a bowl. So what are you waiting for?
Go show someone you love them.
