Lunch at Cafe Vino and a trip to Woodman’s

Hello and happy Saturday!

I started my morning off by reading The Snowman and eating Erin Baker’s Peanut Butter mini breakfast cookie. The book is really good so far. It reminds me of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. Kind of eerie that it’s set in Oslo after yesterday’s horrific bombing and shootings there.

The breakfast cookie was tasty. Not too sweet and it was all I wanted to eat this morning with my coffee because I knew I would be having an early lunch with my friend.

I headed to Menomonee Falls to have lunch with my friend Danielle at Cafe Vino. I’ve known Danielle since 8th grade and we were best friends in high school. Now that we are busy adults, we try to get together at least once a month. It was nice to catch up with her!

I was able to pick what I wanted on my sandwich, so I got a spinach tortilla filled with grilled portabella mushrooms, provolone cheese, hummus, avocado, and various veggies.

YUMMY! I need to make something like this for lunch more often.

We took a walk after lunch and then headed back to her house to visit with her adorable daughter.

I loved up Danielle’s cat because she said that her kitties don’t get as much attention as their daughter does. I wish I could take her cats home with me, but four would be too many. With another child on the way, Danielle and her husband really won’t have time to love their cats. Makes me sad. 😦

On my way home, I stopped by Woodman’s to load up on groceries. I got mostly Chobani (three big containers; $10 worth of individual cups), tofu, fruit, tempeh, fish oil, and some portabella veggie burgers.

I called Craig to ask a question and that’s when I heard the news about Amy Winehouse’s death. I could and couldn’t believe it at the same time. While I was writing this post, Craig told me that his cousin, who is studying in England right now, is living a couple of blocks down from where Amy was found. Strange.

Time to meditate, then watch Love and Other Drugs. Hope it’s a good movie! Looking forward to a low key Saturday night.
