Hi friends! How’s your weekend going? Hope you’re having a beautiful and relaxing day so far 🙂
Thanks so much for the Philly recommendations! The official HLS events are over, so we’ll see what kind of shenanigans the Pilot and I can get into today 😉
Yesterday, in between events, we met up with some friends to hit up the Rittenhouse farmer’s market.
My preg buddy:
The market was really cute- lots of flower vendors, produce, goat cheese (!) and fresh lemonade. We each grabbed one, and I loved the option of having it sweetened with Stevia instead of agave.
As much as I love to visit other farmer’s markets, it’s always a legendary tease because there isn’t a ton you can take on a plane home with you.
I’m hoping to head back to that area today, because the surrounding stores looked very appealing 😉
For dinner, we went to pod, which is a modern family-style Asian restaurant.
The atmosphere was pretty amazeballz:
Sleek, modern, and I’m a fan of any place with conveyor belt sushi 🙂
To start, we shared some salty warm edamame:
Thai salad for me (cabbage, cilantro, egg, peanuts, avocado, vinaigrette)
+ one of the few rolls I can roll with for the next few months: California
[The crab is cooked, so it’s NBD. It’s also nowhere near the awesomeness of salmon sashimi.]
The best part:
Chocolate hazelnut brownie with espresso ice cream.
It was so much fun chatting with the girls, being told crazy stories by the Pilot and feasting on glorious food 🙂
After dinner, we went to a wine bar, the hotel bar and called it a night. It was the latest this old lady’s been up in a while 😉
See ya later this afternoon <3
