We kicked off the month by taking a field trip to a fun street in Richmond. We visited Penzey's Spices and a fab chocolate shop and then settled ourselves and our bags at a most wondrous Vietnamese place.
The attention to detail in every aspect of the place was incredible. (And yes, we all lined up to take photos of the bamboo sinks.)
My coffee, slowly dripping into sweetened condensed milk.
An explosion of fresh flavors and contrasting textures.
I amused myself by swirling the peppers and saying that I had my own miniature koi pond.
We were supposed to have dinner at a Greek restaurant, but it was closed for renovation, so we popped into an Indian place for appetizers.
After all that spicy food, they seemed to need a bit of sweet, so a stop at Carytown Cupcakes was needed.
Antique molds in their bathroom added to our bathroom tours.
We made it home prior to a wild storm hitting as I type~a huge blessing. The bus is a pain to drive in good weather.
My little stash.
Tomorrow brings a fish fry, hush puppies, fresh french fries, coleslaw, and berry cobblers.
