Yesterday was pretty low key because of the weather. I did venture out to run a couple of errands, and finally found something I've been searching for over the past couple of months - fig jam! I discovered a jar of the homemade stuff in my parents refrigerator but couldn't fly back with any. I tasted my new purchase on a piece of toast alongside an apple in the afternoon and it didn't disappoint. The only ingredients - red figs and sugar :-)
I had warmed up earlier with a cup of black bean soup and the rest of my roasted potatoes and brussel sprouts.
I met a friend for dinner at a local restaurant, Logan Tavern. It was a refreshing departure from our normal Asian food outings. We had a fantastic meal with excellent service. Once I told the waiter about my allergies, he dutifully let me know which parts of my (not-so-modified) order were OK and what substitutions I could make. It was so nice and made the meal even better!
Today kicked-off with my favorite way to eat my hot cereal - in a jar! I made my BRM hot cereal on the stove top, stirring in sweet potato, a few drops of syrup, vanilla, and cinnamon at the very end. Then, into the peanut butter jar it went (there was little more than 1/2 T left) with a few raisins stirred in. YUM! I'm still warm (and full) from it!
I already ventured out to the farmers market to pick up a few things - bosc pears, beets, collard greens, sweet potatoes, and a parsnip. The sun felt good but it sure was cold.
Off to enjoy the rest of the weekend!
