Weekend "in Asia" with the BFF's
Dinner was at my very favorite, Best Thai, then I introduced my friends to bubble tea at Fat Straws. Lynette highlighted that part of the fun of bubble tea is the lottery aspect of it. You never know exactly what you are going to get when you take a sip. We shared a hotel room in Addison where we stayed up late into the night giggling just like we were sixteen again at a slumber party.
The next morning, we made a definite 'non-Asian' trip for breakfast at Bic's because my friends wanted to check it out since it is in my status updates all the time. They told me they were surprised that it was "just a diner" since they were expecting a vegetarian coffee house with funky art which they thought was more my style.
We then came back to my house for "bento lessons." One of the cool things about the art of creating bento lunches is that it is creative. Simple foods are combined in attractive arrangements so that there is a bit of "wow" factor over the aesthetics as you open the box.
