Handle With Care

I can’t believe this happened. Again. After the last time, I promised that I would be better… but here I sit. You were there for me when I needed comfort and when I needed joy. I like to think you brought out the best in me, always flattering my every movement. It broke my heart to see you there, shrunken… tiny… I pressed my hands to my ears trying to block out the scream “NOOOOOOOOO!” that echoed loudly in my head. But I had been careless, it was my fault alone  and now nothing can bring you back. You have been lost forever, a one of a kind find at discount prices that these thoughtless hands destroyed with one washing. You are truly irreplaceable.

So farewell, I won’t forget you. I can only hope that this time I’ve finally learned my lesson. A care label is to be respected, it is not a mere suggestion; ignoring it will leave you with a sweater only slightly larger than a Cabbage Patch Kid:Image

A Lowbrow Breakfast

The Lowbrow in South Minneapolis is one of my favorite restaurants. Not only do they have a bright and cheery space, their menu has a bunch of interesting vegetarian options to choose from. With all those choices, however, I always get the Fried Tofu Sandwich because it’s one of my all time favorite meals (see it here). So color me ecstatic when we showed up for an impromptu breakfast and there were Tofu Breakfast Tacos on the menu! Served with guacamole and roasted potatoes, they were the perfect way to start the day:

The Husband doesn’t like a lot going on with his eggs, he likes them simple. The Bacon Scallion Scramble was just the ticket:

We had to ask what the HEY! COFFEE CAKE flavor was and the blueberry we ordered was definitely the “brunch time must” they promised it would be:

The Lowbrow is all about comfort food made using locally farmed and sustainably grown ingredients. With so many gluten-free and vegetarian options, there is something for everyone. Go lowbrow with your next meal and head to Lowbrow. 🙂
