I'm currently enjoying a weekend in CT with the family and therefore pretty far from all things internetty, but I had to take a minute to share my review of one of Lara Bar's new flavors! I rode Metro North up to my parents' condo yesterday and packed the German Chocolate Cake flavor to have as a snack.
I liked it a lot, but then again, anything combining chocolate and coconut is probably going to be fine with me. I shared a bite with Mom, though (a true German), and she said that "it would take a lot of imagination" to think of this like German Chocolate Cake. Whatever--my imagination does in fact veer towards things like mushed up dates, nuts and chocolate, so I'm a happy camper.
At the beginning of my train ride, I gloried in the salad I'd packed while soaking up some more of The Omnivore's Dilemma.
You can't see much of the leftover massaged kale salad, but I combined that with an ear's worth of raw corn, plus cherry tomatoes and a sprinkling of wasabi peas. This might actually be one of the best salads I've ever had, if only for the rather skewed ratio of sweet, fresh corn to everything else. ;)
Off to absorb some more of the fibbity-fabulous lake view. Maybe I'll share that with you later...if you're lucky!
