Catching up with friends over cupcakes, movies

I had to start my junk food detox today – but only after I had a giant peanut butter-chocolate cupcake from Baked and Wired – YUM! Rich, but delicious. My head was pounding so badly afterward from the sugar rush that I’m not sure I can ever do it again, but it was worth it. 🙂 It was great to hang out with Tamara, Claudia, and Gillian. I am SO PROUD of Gillian – she just got back from taping Jeopardy!! I won’t reveal to the world how she did, but she totally rocks. I now can say I know a celebrity! As part of my detox, I got an incredible salad from Sweetgreen. I’m not sure if the ingredients actually work together from a “foodie” perspective, but I loved it: butternut squash, beets, roasted red peppers, hearts of palm, feta cheese, wasabi peas, and red pepper vinaigrette. I can’t believe I only just discovered their salads; I will definitely have to have more before I leave! OK; so my life isn’t ONLY about good food. Igor and I saw Brothers tonight (with a pre-movie glass of Malbec at Clyde’s beforehand), which I HIGHLY recommend. Do be prepared for a thought-provoking film – all the actors did an incredible job! Now I’m settling in a with a glass of my Yealands Sauvignon Blanc… aaah. 🙂
