lunch on the drive to new orleans: farmer’s market baguette with cedar’s red pepper hummus; farmer’s market organic blueberries; melon

banana with soynut butter; kamut krispie treat; shiner blonde; melon

dinner at lola’s (on stacey’s recommendation, although i realized that katherine and marcy and i had been there together three years ago!): vegetarian paella; tons of bread and garlic “butter”; housemade sangria. i asked about the garlic butter, and found out that they put raw garlic in a food processor and blend it while slowly adding olive oil, along with salt and lemon juice, until it reaches a buttery consistency. it’s so good!!
