Today we had lunch with my parents at the new Hat Creek Burgers in Georgetown. Hat Creek makes an awesome veggie burger with wild rice and cashews, so that's what I ordered, with a side of fried pickle chips. Fried pickles...so evil, yet so delicious.
Grandma and Grandad just got back from a trip to Florida to visit my aunt and uncle. They brought souvenirs for Jackson and Olivia -- shells, starfish, sand dollars, seahorses. The kids had fun looking at everything and listening to the ocean.
Hat Creek's south location has a playscape, which we love. This new spot doesn't, but there is a big open space out back with picnic tables and a wooden stage. Jackson, Olivia and the other kids decided to turn the stage into an obstacle course by belly-crawling underneath it.
On the way home we stopped to check out the brand-new Whole Foods in our hood. I picked up spaghetti squash and Field Roast sausages to use for upcoming dinners. Then I treated myself to a couple of goodies. I'd seen ads in VegNews for the new flavors of Veganaise, but hadn't been able to find them locally til now. When I spotted Veganaise horseradish sauce, I had to toss it in my cart. I also picked up a bottle of ginger syrup, which I'd never come across before. I'm going to try a spoonful in my hot tea.
