Last weekend we did two things we’ve done before – one we go to each year, and the other, seemingly each weekend. Our annual Street of Dreams is going on all month, and it is an event I look forward to every year. The homes are beautiful, and many close to or over a one million price tag. Dreams, indeed. What I love most are the accessories, and this year I found a few things I would love to have in my own home.
I really want this side table, it just looks fun. Do you like tic tac toe?
I also love these plates – and we’ve been needing to buy new ones.
Aren’t they beautiful?
After touring the homes, it was lunchtime. Jason really wanted falafel. I remembered that our newest favorite neighborhood place, Down to Earth Cafe, was more of a Persian menu after breakfast, so off we went!
We started with fresh juice, the same order as our last: Jason had the Down to Earth Medley – apple, beet, carrot and ginger.
I chose the Drink Your Veggies and Fruit - carrot, apple, lemon, spinach, pineapple and walnuts. So good, again!
Jason was able to get his falafel – a vegetarian sandwich of falafel patties with tomato, lettuce, cucumber, red onion, Tzatziki sauce, crumbled feta on pita bread. He loved it!
I went for something I have been thinking about since our last visit, the Vegan Tofu Scramble – firm tofu, mushrooms, red onions, zucchini, tomatoes, spinach, topped with avocado; with salsa; home fries and pita.
This was as amazing as it looks! (as amazing as it can look with a smart phone camera…). I love a good tofu scramble, and they do it right. Once again, Down to Earth made me happy.
We love this place. Everyone is super nice, the food is always excellent, warm and comfortable atmosphere. There is that one thing, but I will gladly overlook that and continue to enjoy!
Do you have a favorite restaurant that you frequent?
Do you have a tour of homes event in your area, or have you been to one?
