Current Food Lovin’

Do something today that your future self will thank you for. (2)

I always have a craving for something sweet after a meal. Lately, since I am trying to be healthy I will attempt to have tea but if that won’t do it here is a fun little one cup cookies recipe.

Do you take a lunch to work or make one at home? I love this little video of weekday lunch ideas.

Popcorn and chocolate give me energy?! Sign me up. Great list of high energy snacks!

Artichokes and I go way back, I have loved them for a long time. This crispy roasted artichoke recipe brings new life to an old favorite.

I could have hummus everyday and its Mother approved because its so dang good for you. These hummus recipes are steadily going to make it into my Summer rotation.

 

 

Weekly Favs

Near my office in Oakland is a fun little spot called MUA.  We had mussels and fries which I was a bit scared to try as I had never had them before but I was pleasantly surprised it was really good. In addition to the mussels and fries we had a green bean sandwich .. sounds strange but it was delectable. Their beer selection on tap was soso but I was pleasantly surprised with their bottled beer selection. The cream stout I had was delicious and maybe a tad too much for a lunchtime drink ;).IMG_4049 IMG_4050 IMG_4052 IMG_4054While waiting at Plow we walked around for some exercise and look at this cute bench we found halfway up the hill. I imagine it comes in handy when walking up the hill with groceries in hand.
IMG_4060 Do I have too many favorite places… probably. Plow is famed for being one of the best brunches in the city and I have to agree. The ‘Plow’ breakfast is to die for. If only I could eat this everyday. Actually scratch that.. it would be problematic. IMG_4063 IMG_4064 IMG_4065 Pumpkin Carving. YAY. I love Mickey sitting in the window.IMG_4069 IMG_4070 IMG_4079 IMG_4077 Had a chance to go to Hollow over the weekend when I was out with Mickey on a walk and it was so delicious. I can’t wait to go back.IMG_4080 IMG_4081 IMG_4082 A batch of Pumpkin Brownies to take the sting out of Monday.

Naked Lunch

Naked Lunch is a great place to head for lunch if you work in or near the financial district.

You side up to the bar and order your food and beverages.

The bartenders are nice and knowledgable. I had an amazing brew from Fort Point a local San Francisco Brewery.

The beer I had was a speciality from when Fort Point did a tap takeover at Naked Lunch during beer week. It was a truly delicious drink and I wish I had not lost the receipt I wrote the name down on!

If you get a chance to try Fort Point do it!

We dined on Mary’s Farm Fried Chicken Sandwich AND a Lamb Cheesesteak sandwich. Crispy French fries were shared amongst the table.

I can’t wait to go back again and I hope you try to stop in for a bite.
I would say walking to and from the office plus lunch took about 1.5 hours. Worth It.
