On one of our regular date nights, after having some Mexican food we headed for a walk and saw a crowd at a distance that spiked our curiosity. It was near Christmas time, and there was a big crowd of small families, I believe waiting for a Christmas tree to be lit or something; there was music and it was cold but people were still out.
Behind the crowd I saw a store with some neon signs that said: chocolate, wine, flowers, and gourmet salts. They had me at chocolate, but it sounded like it was all our favorite things in one place! Hubby’s favorite would be wine. We both love flowers, and gourmet salts, why not? We squeezed through the crowd and arrived at paradise, The Meadow.
These are amazing. And even more so because they are flourless and refined sugar-less. Most of the sweetness comes from the dates. If the amount of salt seems like too much, don’t skimp! It really makes the overall flavor. I think it’s totally fine to go for seconds on this one. (Not that I ever stop myself from going for seconds anyway).

This week, I got my Oregon state 8 year driving license! It was exciting because I passed the test with a 100% (alright, I had to take it twice, but still, they don’t give you the exact same questions every time), and they gave me 8 years which I wasn’t expecting because my green card right now expires in August, and in Durham, NC where I last obtained a driving license, if you are a U.S. resident, they give you a license with the same expiration date as your green card.
In other news, last night I made a special dinner for four for the first time. I had never cooked for more than two people except for potluck dishes like a big bowl of guacamole. Josh and I wanted to make a nice dinner for our hosts, who are now our friends and roommates. The menu was: chicken parmesan, roasted broccoli, garlic mashed potatoes, garlic bread, and salad. It was a success.
I hope you have an awesome weekend! Enjoy these links I gathered from internetland:
