my food indulgences...

Suffice it so say that Shelah and I have a long history of "food snobbery" together. In college we would buy lindt truffles to eat at international cinema, made weekly menus preparing authentic Italian pastas (although provo grocery stores are no mecca for the gourmand), and ditch our honors humanities class to eat lunch at the art museum cafe (we justified it by discussing our humanities while we were there)- all this while students around us subsisted on rice, ramen, and cereal. One of our great traditions is getting together and enjoying truly great food (we would probably make great Europeans)- and this trip (despite the 5 kid menagerie that surrounded us) we managed some fabulous eats... (oh and central market is a grocery store to die for!!!)

we polished off a few great bottles of Italian soda (which seem to make the summer heat more bearable), some killer gelato, a central market chicken salad sandwich on ciabatta (that was pure heaven), pots de creme and chocolate mousse cake, fabulous grilled chicken smothered in pesto, good crusty bakery bread, some lindt truffle bar, yummy sesame chicken, blueberry cake, creme brulee, real mexican food, and 2 runs to sonic- we appreciate even the best of the low brow food- i am a total sucker for limeade)

don't you wish you'd come to texas (okay maybe not on my flights)

Hmmmm, I'm now thinking it's a good time for lunch. Your post made me very hungry. Unfortunately, I won't be eating anything so delectable!

This is how my Aunt and I are when we get together. She is only a couple of years older than me, and what a blast we have finding gourmet foods. Here's to foodies!
