Yesterday was one of those below zero fahrenheit days where you can feel your nose hairs freezing. I know, I’m lovely, aren’t I?
It was also insanely bright and sunny. The sky always looks so, so blue when it’s cold like that. It makes Minnesota winters bearable to me.
It’s becoming a habit of mine on these ultra cold days to walk the one-and-a-half blocks to Lucia’s To-Go at lunchtime and warm up with a bowl of their vegan three bean chili, a big hunk of fresh bread and some salad.
The only thing I wish is that I had all my best girl friends with me to huddle over coffees and cookies. Yes, I am a big girl and no, I don’t care.
These chocolate sea salt cookies were the inspiration for my own version by the way! They’re ever so dark and rich, although I’ve realised mine are more sea-salty and I must say, I’m a big fan of that.
Don’t you just love lunches out? They’re my favourite!
p.s. did you catch the comments on my last post? I love reading about everyone’s weeks!
