I finally got a lunch invite today (I think I may be making a friend in Jen from work) and we went to Elephants Delicatessen. I’ve included a link, but the website really does not do this place justice – maybe I’ll sneak my camera in next time. It’s like a cross between Whole Foods’ deli, that candy store where Charlie bought his winning Wanka Bar, and one of those old fashioned soda fountain places. They have baked goods – scones, cookies, cupcakes – sandwiches hot and cold, soups, salads, candies, a whole wall of beverages, greeting cards and giftable books. It was amazing. Today I’m having vegetable chili and a croque monsieur, both of which are delicious so far. And, I bought a peanut butter cookie for later. If I had seen the handmade caramels before I paid I would probably have brought some of those back with me as well! Who knows what else I’ll end up with next time!
Also, on the walk to Elephants Jen said that she and Alexia may be interested in starting a knitting group that meets during lunch a couple of days a week. I will be so excited if they really do it with me!
