Sometimes I Eat Cake For Breakfast

This weekend, I threw caution to the wind and let myself forget about stress for slightly longer than usual (the result is that I am particularly stressed right now). But I had some particularly fun breakfasts this weekend, so it was probably worth it.

On Saturday I met my friends Andrea and Sarah at Bea Bea’s, a very happening breakfast place in Burbank. I had a breakfast burrito, it was good.

ImageThen on Sunday my friend Ryan and I went to Sweet Salt, a restaurant in Toluca Lake for breakfast. I knew right away I had to have their Blueberry Lemon cake, which was good. Also, I tried their vanilla lavender latte on a whim, which was really good, but which I probably shouldn’t have been drinking with such a ridiculously sweet cake. And it probably didn’t help that I was alternating bites of my super sweet cake with bites of Ryan’s potatoes-in-truffle oil. But no regrets.

Relics from France

I like espresso a lot more than I did when I first arrived in France (both times. It was a long process). And now I can drink of a lot of it because of this:

ImageIt’s a single-cup espresso maker that my friend Sarah gave me as we were all packing up to leave the country. How cool, right? Everyone should have one. The only problem is that I foresee a fight over it between my dad & I come mid-August when I move down to Irvine….
