Good morning everyone! I hope you’re all having a delicious day so far. I have a great meal that I wanted to tell you about – I enjoyed lunch at Seven Shores Urban Market and Cafe in Uptown Waterloo last Thursday. 🙂 I
normally always hate sharing iPhone photos because my iPhone 4 takes pictures no better than, say, a calculator. No, I’m not kidding. Take a look!
Regardless of the fact that these photos are crummy and that I’m forgetful enough to leave my camera at home (probably a good thing, considering the chances of me losing it are 50/50 here). I started off with their organic, house-made chocolate milk, which came in a cute jar. Things in jars make me happy. 🙂
I think the chocolate milk was made in skim milk and the lady making it didn’t use quite enough cocoa powder, because this was a little bland and tasted like plain ‘ole milk. That might just be my taste buds, though, because I like things REALLY chocolatey, whether that’s chocolate cake squares, oatmeal, or a pot of straight up melted chocolate in Paris.
My entree was the crepe, filled with spinach, goat cheese mousse, red peppers, and caramelized onions. The soup of the day was tomato-garlic. The caramelized onions in the crepe really made it special! This was a nice and light entree, but I was still so full afterwards.
So full –> still need dessert, because who doesn’t have a second stomach for sweets? This square was their special carrot cake with cream cheese icing.
It was such a big square, and I should’ve asked for it to be cut in half, but OOPS! It was amazing, though, and I savoured each and every bite. The creamy cheesy frosting was to die for.
Yeah, don’t be fooled by my notes out here. I was “studying”, but not really studying – I mean, HOW can you focus on social stratification and the Thorstein-Veblen thesis (I was studying for my Sociology exam) when there’s a square of carrot cake in front of you?
One more thing – ONE WEEK until Christmas?! What is this? I’m not complaining – the holiday season always cheers me up, even if the weather doesn’t. I feel like just yesterday, I was scouring the shores of the Sunshine Coast for seashells and seals. Time really does fly. Anyways, enjoy the rest of your week and I will see you in my next post! 🙂
