I have a bunch of photos today, mostly of food as usual. I’m behind a good two weeks on my blog, photos-wise so I have a lot of catching up to do! It has been really sunny but cold in Seattle lately (well sunny until today…) and I was feeling springy in my steps from the shining sun so I tried to walk outside as much as possible.
My poor plants are dying for the sun (literally!) so this last week was so good for them!
Eager to soak up the rare sun, I took a jaunt to the local Asian market where you can get vegetable and fruit for cheap. True fact: when it’s sunny outside in Seattle, all Seattle-ites feel a sudden strong responsibility to be in the sun so we must plan outdoor activities immediately. My boyfriend from always-sunny California thinks this is so funny because I feel like I can never sit inside if the sun is out, probably because we are all lacking Vitamin D!
I like to wash my veggies and fruits immediately so they are ready to eat all week, I’m actually not even sure my veggie/fruit rinse works, I just pour some Apple Cider Vinegar in the sink and let them soak for a bit. Do you think it clean them? What do you use?
I know this is a while ago now but this is the package I sent G for V-Day!
A new Spring scent. This candle from Anthropologie is ah-mazing!
I dropped by the market on Galentines Day (2/13 ) to pick up some tulips for my friend Sulki, whose birthday is Valentines Day! There was a major line at Pike’s Place for tulips, a bunch of men getting flowers for their girlfriends/wives and me….haha!
For Galentines day we had a little girls night set up, take a look at this Martha Stewart-y veggie tray I made!
We also made tea time finger sandwiches, cucumber and smoked salmon. The salmon one was delicious!
All the goodies all the table. And yes, those are red velvet oreos!
I love blueberries! I could eat 5 pounds of them easy, couldn’t you?
While preparing for Galentines night, Sulki and I got hungry (making sandwiches!) so we skidaddled downstairs and found a new restaurant and grocery store had opened, called the Market Hall. It looked like a good spot so we decided to give it a shot (that rhymed!).
Both of us ordered a hard cider, it was so crisp and tasty. I don’t many alcoholic drinks but I do like cider!
We split a pizza and truffle fries. The pizza was super good, it tasted a lot like traditional Italian pizza!
The truffle fries were also delicious.
The birthday girl and I
Our friend Melissa brought this beautiful cake from Bakery Nouveau. So adorable.
It had a raspberry filling and the frosting tasted a little like cool whip, it was refreshing to not have a cake with overpoweringly sweet frosting!
Of course, T-Swift was played.
After munching on some snacks, we hit the town and headed to Zig Zag Cafe on the Harbor Steps for a drink.
The rest of the night was spent chatting and sipping on some yummy cocktails. And that concluded Galentines Day!
On Valentines Day I got a package in the mail, a box of chocolates from my lovely BF!
G and I watched a movie via Skype while we each ate our treats, he munched on the white chocolate chip macadamia nut cookies I sent him and I stuffed my face happily with See’s candy. Have you ever had See’s lollipops? I love those, especially the vanilla and chocolate ones!
Check back soon for another post! It will last weekend’s visit from my bf and the good Seattle eats that followed!
Have you ever been to an English tea place? I don’t even know how to word that sentence, but I mean when you go drink tea and eat little finger sandwiches and scones! I want to go in Victoria, Canada, the closest English tea to Seattle, I think!
Do you celebrate Galentines Day?
What is your favorite drink (alcoholic or other)? I like drinks with elderflower syrup, hard apple cider, water and green smoothies!
