It’s funny that my sister and I used to fight like cats at dogs, because these days I consider her one of my best friends. We share the same interest in cooking, we use a lot of the same sayings, and sometimes we even dress the same without realizing it! But since her boyfriend is staying with us this summer, we don’t get to spend as much time alone together, so we have to set aside sister time every so often.
Yesterday Hayley and I went on a day trip to where I go to school in London, Ontario so that I could pick up a few things at my apartment. It had all the makings of a good road trip: sunny weather, Starbucks, and the Mamma Mia soundtrack to sing along to.
When we got to London we quickly picked up a few necessities from my apartment (more clothes, my coconut and chickpea flours, and some cookbooks… yes these are necessities) then headed out for lunch. We went to Organic Works, a bakery cafe I’ve been wanting to check out for ages. I fell in love with it as soon as I stepped inside and saw it’s cozy eating area.
And the food just impressed me even more! It was fresh, healthy, and best of all, nut-free! And the best part? Their mouth-watering display of store-made baked goods. I am so excited I discovered this place!
For my meal I ordered the salad and sandwich combo. My sandwich was made with real roasted turkey, avocado spread, lettuce, tomato and sprouts on toasted buckwheat rye bread. I didn’t realize it until I bit into it, but the avocado spread was actually guacamole. Yum!
The salad I ordered was a beet, rutabaga and sprout salad. So good!
As we were leaving we had a taste of their orange chocolate muffin sample (it was delicious) and bought a loaf of their gluten free buckwheat oatmeal and flax bread. I can’t wait to make my sandwiches on this!
After our lunch I took Hayley to the indoor farmer’s market to show her around, then we drove the 1.5 hours back home. It was a short trip, but it was nice to just chill with my sister for a day!
