Oh yesterday was a long day. I went into work at 7 and was our by 9 pm. The morning started out rough when I got a flat tire on my way to work on a rainy morning. There was no going home during my lunch break so I decided to take a much needed quiet lunch to relax and rejuvenate. Of course I went to the one place I knew would be the perfect spot. Teavolve .
Honestly I go there often and enjoy it every single time but I always order the same thing. The grilled veggie panini is my favorite, but I really had nothing to compare it to since thats the only thing I ever get. I decided today to switch it up. I started lunch off with a pot of Vanilla Rooibos tea. Rooibos quickly became my favorite tea the first day I tried it. Never needs sweetener, it’s perfect by itself. Your tea comes atop a tealight candle to keep it warm.
For my meal I decided to go with the beet and goat cheese salad. After having beets in my salad this past weekend at Fitbloggin I knew I wanted to try this one. It was a simple mixed greens salad topped with fresh goat cheese, sliced beets, and walnuts. It came with a balsamic vinaigrette to round it off. This can easily be made at home so i’m excited to get the ingredients to make my own quick gourmet salad.
I decided to finish my last cup of tea off with a mini apricot and white chocolate scone. You’ve seen these before, and I’ve eaten these quite a few times but i’ve never bought one when I sat down, only take out. OH MY the difference. They heat them up and it comes 100 times better than when I get one to go. This was epic.
It was a rainy day out and I completely enjoyed this hour to myself. Calm and quiet, I needed this badly. I know some people don’t like eating at restaurants by themselves. I actually find it relaxing sometimes and don’t mind it one bit. I’ve never gone to a movie at a theater by myself though, but I kind of want to do it.
How do you feel about doing things on your own?
