No More Store continues to move smoothly along.
I made up for not eating enough on Friday with Saturday: I started the day off right with a delicious almond-lavender cupcake (so good, I can’t even tell you) that Maresa made for the shop, then I fiddled with the new coffee system I’ve been working on, but I made friends drink the tester coffees and I had only the tiniest sip because COFFEE IS GROSS and I don’t know why no one else has realized this (also, as has been well-documented on this blog, caffeine + Lagusta = deadly tornado of wild energy that could swallow up the universe).
At this point, our blog-pal Adrienne and her sweetheart Nate came into the shop! Hooray for far-flung colleagues coming to visit!
For lunch Maresa and I had tacos from The Good Taco Place (as opposed to The Shack), and they were good, as they always are. Grilled portobello mushrooms + red onion marmalade + fresh guac + homemade garlicky hot sauce, all rolled into a grilled blue corn tortilla. I could eat that $4 taco every day.
Then later on I had a nice break outside with another cupcake.
And then I made myself a nice salad with turnips and a basil vinaigrette, and when my dentist (you know him!) came by to pick up some chocos, I was happy I was eating the salad and not the cupcake.
More work, then I actually had a lovely 3-part dinner: some CSA veggies with just s&p,
then a few bites of a beet and fennel and turnip salad with more basil vinaigrette,
then greens and my friend Aaron’s gorgeous log-grown shiitakes. Woo!
And another day is done.
