in What I Ate Wednesday

Oh Wednesday, here you are again! The official 2.5 week countdown until Q’s arrival has begun (and yes I know I talk about it often, but for a countdown that started 8 months ago, 2.5 weeks is pocket change!). Today was a beautiful LA day and I was just sort of in a super good mood all day and super good food followed!

Breakfast – 9:30AM

Oats with almond butter and cinnamon with a side of raspberries and a Whole Foods Almond Milk Latte (my favorite ever).

Lunch – 12:30PM

I had a work lunch at Tavern in Brentwood and I am obsessed. This restaurant is gorgeous (the back room looks like a big green house). The food is so fresh and the menu is right up my alley (lots of salads, soups, sandwiches and a few burgers). I got the The Market Angeleno (Burrata, young broccoli, currants, and pinenuts on fresh ciabatta) and it was to die for. The burrata was creamy and the currants added a great sweetness to the dish. Other dishes at the table were the Turkey Burger and Farro, Tabouleh, Beets, Carrots, Chickpeas and Feta Salad. We ordered two chocolate chip cookies to-go (they offer a crispy and a chewy and they both were made with expensive chocolate and tasted amazing!). I would go back here over and over again if I lived on this side of town.

Dinner – 7:00PM

We pan-seared sea trout (half salmon, half trout) with a side of roasted squash and sauteed pea shoots.

Dessert- 7:45PM

Homemade vanilla bean ice cream with Valrhona chocolate nibs. (Homemade ice cream is such a treat!).
