Let's Split A Brownie

During my lunch break today, I ate at Panera Bread® with a friend. I really like their soups. And, of course, their bread. I usually order the broccoli cheddar soup. It comes with a piece of freshly baked baguette. Sometimes I order it in a bread bowl...mmm! My friend and I felt like having something sweet with our meals, so we ordered a brownie and split it.

Rich and dense, this brownie looks a bit like a slice of cake. Rather than serving brownies in the usual square shape, Panera bakes their brownies in a circular pan and slices them up in triangles. The Very Chocolate Brownie is so yummy, topped with chocolate icing and decorated with chocolate jimmies. I don't usually like chocolate-on-chocolate action, but this brownie is an exception.

Doggy's Day Out

Yuzu is Watching

We drove down to Corona Del Mar yesterday afternoon (it's sort of like the halfway point between Los Angeles and San Diego counties). It was a perfect day for a drive along the southern California coast. Here's my doggy sitting out on Pacific Coast Highway, enjoying an Ice-Blended® Green Tea from Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf.

I'm not a coffee drinker, but I love Coffee Bean. I really like the way coffee smells when it's brewing, but I don't like the taste of coffee at all. Whenever I go to Starbucks or Coffee Bean, I usually order a blended drink. Green tea is my favorite. At least from Coffee Bean. The one at Starbucks is total rubbish. Tastes like honeydew because of the melon syrup they put in it. Not a good combination, in my opinion. Maybe some people like it, but I don't. Coffee Bean's green tea drink uses a quality matcha, which is the best-tasting green tea.

Yummy Yuzu

My dad and I went out for Japanese food last night at Kabuki. I've always liked the food there. Tasty and affordable. I took pictures of all the sushi we ate, but here are just a couple of pics of some dishes I found noteworthy.

Watercress yuzu salad (Julienne romaine lettuce, watercress,
daikon, cucumber, endive, sesame seed and yuzu dressing)

First time I tried Japanese snapper - it was delicious!
