Food and Drink and stuff...

We went out to a Japanese restaurant for lunch today. It had quite a nice ambiance, food was ok, and I was in a mood to take pictures :)

The first thing I noticed were these colorful napkins. There were a lot more colors, and it just looked so cheerful!

They brought us some Japanese tea, in these cool mugs. (Not being a "chaibaaz", I liked the mug more than the drink!)

The food was artistic too! This is my Mango, Avocado, Cucumber roll.

It tasted fine, but it broke one very basic rule that I have for "good" food. It was not piping hot :(

Stanford University

We went out for lunch a couple weekends ago with a friend visiting from India.
He is a really close friend, but I had never actually met him personally, so this was the first time I was seeing him. It was a gorgeous day, so we decided to spend some time at the Stanford University after lunch. Some pictures from that day...

We stopped by my favorite fruit store on our way home. We usually never go there at this time of the year, so I was curious as to what they would have. They had all the fruits they have during the summer months, but in dried form!!! Strawberries, cherries, blueberries, pears, apples, raspberries, plums, apricots, any fruit you can think of, they had it...dried up! And an assortment of nuts. This is what we bought - dried mangoes, Brazilian nuts and a Bumble Bar :) All of it was on impulse, and all of it was YUMMMMY!
