I have tried several times, and when I google maps led me to this:
I thought today wouldn’t be the day either. Luckily, I didn’t rely solely on the navigation. Rather I looked the place up manually (still on my phone) I saw the address was on a different street. This:
was to be found on the same building, but on Washington instead of Duke.
As soon as I walked in, I knew I would be walking out with something. Not necessarily because everything looked so great, but because there was almost no one in there. I have mentioned this before, but I get anxious in buying situations and appease that anxiety by always buying. It is a complex anxiety that I can’t help and is especially bad in empty places.
Luckily for me, there were good things to buy
Fine, I got some lemonade too.
The soup: smelled better than it tasted. It smelled AMAZING. It tasted good, but was a little thick and kind of spicy.
The cheese: it was delicious. Well I made it into an amazing salad. I bought canned pears when I had the flu but never ate them. I thought, those could be darn good on some salad but the texture wouldn’t be quite right. I decided to saute them. Warm pears, cold cheese, crostini. This might be the best decision I have ever made. I hate to oversell this, but this salad was freaking amazing.
I wish I was still eating it.
And so do you.
