I won a bottle of wine! For selling the most specials at work . I may not have a “real” job yet or a solid future plan at the moment, but I have a free bottle of Spanish Garnacha!!
In all honestly, I probably won more out of luck than my super waitressing skills. Also, the Bulgarian girl with the sultry accent who always wins these contests by a landslide was not working last night. But whatever….I have free wine, and I am happy.
After a run in the freezing cold today (I guess it’s winter now!), I picked up some lunch from Farm Cart downtown. Farm Cart is a new to-go lunch spot opened up by one of my favorite restaurants- Farm 255. They get all their ingredients from local farms, and everything is incredibly delicious!
I’ve been a few times already, and I always get their cauliflower soup:
It’s served with croutons, a drizzle of olive oil, and freshly grated nutmeg. Fantastic!! I love love love this soup!
Today I also got the tortilla espanol, which is a cold frittata with potatoes topped with red pepper jelly and served with a side salad.
Also very delicious. If you have never tried red pepper jelly before, you should!
What did you have for lunch today?
Oh, also, the restaurant I work at is having a Christmas party on Sunday and we are all bringing food. Everyone seems to be bringing some kind of dip or dessert, and I would like to bring something healthier but also tasty. I was thinking of maybe some kind of salad?? I think there will be plenty of carb and cheesy goodness, so I want to bring something with lots of veggies that people will like. Does anyone have any ideas?
