Pupus for Anna

Where to start?

We’ve been eating so well around here! (Points? What points?!) I still haven’t missed a day at the gym, so I’m hoping that’s enough to keep me in some sort of weight-related equilibrium. Doubtful though.

Last night we threw Anna a pupu (i.e. appetizers, tapas) party for her 29th birthday. As you may expect, everyone performed in serious foodie fashion. My mom made our contribution (I didn’t make a single thing on this spread): Ricotta stuffed strawberries and mini carrot cakes. Other items: Inari (rice stuffed tofu pockets), bacon wrapped dates, guac/chips, crab ceviche, feta-lemon veggie salad, and strawberry/goat cheese baguettes, all paired with an assortment of wine, beer and sake cocktails.

This morning we got up for the opening bell of the PSU Farmer’s Market. My happy place; major love.

Personalized drip coffee:

From Via Chicago, personalized deep dish breakfast pizza (we shared this… OMG):

Handmade dark chocolate peanut butter cups:

And then lunch was farm-style… this never disappoints.

Gabe made bread (again, OMG) for sandwiches of pastrami, fresh mozz, and mizuna (greens):

Fresh picked salad greens, lightly dressed in balsamic, olive oil, salt and pepper:

Making Ma her favorite shrimp/asparagus pasta toss for dinner! I’ll be gym’ing first thing in the AM.
