Hubby and I were in Tigard, OR and past by a coffee place called Symposium.
I checked out their website and read about “lavender latte” which is a customer favorite and popular.
We were in the neighborhood and decided to give it a try. I ordered a 12 oz “lavender latte”. The aroma of lavender was obvious. It tastes like tea with milk and espresso. It’s not a strong taste but not too sweet either. It’s very calming and I liked it!! Hubby had coffee ☕️ and we shared a piece of “blueberry, cheesecake coffee cake”. The slice was big enough for two.
It wasn’t that busy and lots of tables were available. There were rooms for privacy, to read or surf the net.
We would definitely be returning back. 😊
Hubby and I were meeting a friend for lunch and a movie. Our friend lives 2 hours drive from us, so we decided to meet in the middle in Independence, OR.
It’s our first time visiting this town. Serene, small and quaint. They had a farmer’s market. We parked at the movie theater and walked to “downtown” for lunch. As we were walking, there weren’t much shops and restaurants that were open. I got a whiff of food coming from “Brew Coffee and Tap House“. We decided to go there.
The server was nice and friendly. He said that the bread for the sandwiches and Stromboli are made fresh from the bakery next door and the pasta is made from the noodle place a few stores down.
I had the Roast Beef Stromboli (pictured), my husband had the Philly Cheesesteak with a salad and our friend had Italian Stromboli.
Our food was delicious!!
Slice mushrooms, asparagus cut in small pieces and slice carrots. Cook in a wok until tender. Then throw in the shrimp and mix together until tender.
I would serve it with noodles but I’m watching my carb intake.
I’ve read a few books written by Stephen King (Needful Things) and I’m familiar with the movies and television shows that were based on his books and short stories.
Television shows such as “Haven” based on King’s Colorado Kid was cancelled and “Under the Dome” were cancelled. I’ve watched both shows and I liked them. But I’ve never read the books.
Latest television show is “The Mist”. Another shorty story, the show takes place 10 years after the movie theatre version back in 2007. Judging by the commercial, it seems a bit gory and true horror. I’m not sure if I’m going to watch this one.
The Dark Tower series will makes it theatre debut on August 4th. I just bought the book, so that I know the plot. I saw the trailer and it looks GOOD. I can’t wait!
We saw “Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 2” and we went to have a late lunch after.
Pastini Pastraria was nearby and decided to go there. We were seated right away. Our server was nice and friendly. We ordered and we didn’t wait too long for our food to arrive.
I had the beef, riccota cheese, spinach manicotti. It was temperature hot but once it cooled down, it was delicious!
This movie was cute, funny and entertaining. Of course the first one was good but this one wasn’t that bad either. I liked both! =]
Baby Groot was ADORABLE and full of mischief.
There was some touching moments and a sad one too but I won’t give it away. Looking forward to seeing them in “Avengers: Infinity War”next year. That is going to be one powerful movie with super hero overload!
It’s not from McDonald. It doesn’t have cheese or ham. It’s a fried egg and not pouched.
It doesn’t cost the price McD charges and if you are watching what you eat, it doesn’t have all the calories.
Most importantly, it was home made and delicious!!
