Cafe Style

Weather has warmed up in the Bay Area and it is making me crave cafe food! I am longing for lazy afternoons outside at a cafe with a golf umbrella over my little table, an iced coffee with a black straw and I'll be wearing a beautiful floral sundress and oversized sunglasses and people watch.

So inspired that I made my own cafe style lunch.
 Chopped spinach salad with half a can of tuna, leftover couscous and chickpeas and homemade balsamic vinaigrette. I decided I love chopped salads better since I am able to get couscous and chickpeas with every bite and not left with all the toppings after all the spinach is gone.
 Warmed up Panera Bread cheddar broccoli soup.
 A perfectly-cooked soft-boiled egg. I had originally boiled two eggs but the other one didn't cook as well (the larger egg) so I fed that to the dogs.
 Of course I had a beer! Just kidding! It's chilled barley tea in a beer mug. The reason why it's in a beer mug is because that's how much barley tea I drink.
 Then finished off with two little tiny clementines.

A perfect way to end a scrumptious meal.

I've also pre-ordered something that I can't wait to receive!

 A Le Petite Prince Moleskine notebook! I love Moleskines and I love The Little Prince so I had to purchase it right away!

 It comes with a little cutout in the pocket.

So excited to write in it! I must buy pretty pens for this!
