Here's a popsicle from MEMPopS, the paleta shop in Crosstown Concourse. MEMPopS seriously makes the best popsicles earth, and this new flavor — Tres Limon — is my new fave. It's mint lemonade, strawberry lemonade, and hibiscus lemonade all in one! I had this on Saturday after an 18-mile training run. Hit the spot.
I met up with a former Memphis Flyer staffer (the newspaper where I used to work) for lunch last Friday at Midtown Crossing Grill. I got the Hummus Flatbread, which I often get intense cravings for. This has hummus, kalamata olives, olive oil, and cucumber. I even like the arugula on this, and I kinda hate arugula.
One day last week, I was so busy that I couldn't leave work for lunch, so I grabbed an Asia Bowl with sesame-coated tofu, Asian slaw, and quinoa from Mama Gaia in Crosstown Concourse. Got a side of Hummus & Veggies. It's so awesome working in a place with so many vegan options (with even more coming soon!).
Here's a terrible photo of a weird but tasty brinner from Saturday night. Leftover Curried Cauliflower Frittata, Veggie Sausage, Potato Pancake with Ketchup, Sauteed Cabbage, and Toast with Vegemite. I made the potato pancake using leftover colcannon from St. Patrick's Day.
Thursday night was our bi-weekly girls night at my friend Shara's house. She always drinks Crystal Light with vodka, which never sounded good to me. But she convinced me to try it last week. She uses the stevia-sweetened Crystal Light, so it's a little more natural than the regular kind. And you know what? It works! It's pretty good!
