I went to the Linkery the second time this month. Last week, it was a crowded dinner party affair for Jen and I got to meet some interesting people. This time, I met up with my longtime friends Sharon and Nadia. I haven’t had the chance to hang out with both of them at the same time in a while, so it was nice. Plus, I haven’t been able to go out to lunchtime foodie adventures with Sharon in a while, and going out with her for lunch or dinner is always fun.
Much to Nadia’s amusement, Sharon and I took pictures of the food, starting with the chorizo and goat cheese flat bread. This was our starter.
Nadia ordered the picnic plate with the potato salad and cole slaw. This time, there was no confusion.
I ordered the same thing as I did last time. I freely shared the sauerkraut with my friends. Sauerkraut’s going to have it’s day and Trader Joe’s will stock it. Only, they don’t carry it now. Trader Joe’s, how do you expect me to replicate this $$ experience on the cheap?
Sharon ordered the butternut squash with Israeli couscous. Wonderful vegetarian option, but Sharon has a link.
After dinner, before dessert, Sharon gave us some Dove’s chocolates. The insides of the wrappers were like fortune cookies.
Mine said “Be Fearless” and “Smile Before You Go To Bed. You’ll Sleep Better.”
Sharon’s read, “There’s a time for compromise. It’s called later.”
Nadia’s read, “Send a love letter this week.”
Dessert was lovely. Sharon, Nadia, and I all shared the carrot cake with lemon cream cheese icing.
While the food was great, the best part of the evening was being able to catch up with Sharon and Nadia. Happy Holidays, friends.
