Today I took a quick break from work to meet up with a friend for lunch over at The Kenwood. This neighborhood spot is among my very favorite places to dine in the Twin Cities both because the food is fabulous and because I can always be seated right when I walk in. It’s never too crowded (but never dead), and it’s always quiet so you can hear your companions easily (which is becoming more and more of a rarity here in the metro).
Nicole, my buddy, got the beet salad above (I’ve had it before — amazing) and I was freezing cold due to the rain and got the oatmeal. You guys, I never get oatmeal at restaurants, but this concoction is so warm and rich and comforting with the perfect textures and … well… you get the idea. You can see my oatmeal below.
And speaking of going out to lunch for oatmeal, I’m getting so old! Last night I went to a new yoga class I signed up for through Community Ed, and there were so many other fun classes going on! Japanese! Water color! Pilates! Zumba! Tap dancing! I seriously just want to retire, watch birds all day at my feeder and then attend community ed classes on the evenings I’m not home sipping wine and watching PBS. Who knew old age would come on this fast!?
For your internet share of the day, I loved this interview with a Sommelier and learning what all is involved in this talent. I don’t need to become a professional (and frankly, I love wine as it is), but it’s still fascinating.
