After breakfast, a little shopping and an hour and a half of class, my parents made it into town. They made the 7 hour drive up to Northern California today to spend the weekend with me and I couldn’t be happier to see them! We went to an early dinner to a super cute little place in town that we had never been to before.
I started with the most delicious Sangria ever.While we waited for our entrees, we enjoyed a delicious appetizer of warmed goat cheese and fresh herbs on garlic toast. For my entree, I order the Vegetarian Lasagna with collard greens, artichokes, caramelized onions, hard-cooked eggs and bechamel.This was definitely not your “traditional” lasagna, but it was out of this world good!
Unfortunately, I had a 3 hour lab from 5-8 tonight, so my parents dropped me off at class right after we finished up our amazing meal.
Shocking frog hearts for three hours in a physiology lab was definitely the last place I wanted to be on the night of my birthday, but I made it through because I knew what was waiting for me once I got out.Remember last week when I was super bummed about not getting my Tiramisu? My mom brought an entire Tiramisu cake up for me!!Over the summer when my mom and I went wedding cake tasting, we found the most AMAZING baker and booked her immediately (check her out here!). We were so completely in love with her cakes that my mom promised to order one for my birthday. Since my schedule this quarter at school was too jam packed for me to make the trip down to Southern California, I figured I would just have to wait until Jason and I get married in August to taste one of the amazing cakes again. My mom was awesome enough to get me one and drive it all the way up to me!Just look at the beautiful detail!Believe it or not, it was even better than it looked. So worth the wait!
It would be a lie if I said I didn’t go back for more.
