Bistro La Bon – Charlotte NC

IMG_3164

There are few things I love more than an unassuming diamond of a restaurant tucked away in the “rough” of a strip mall. Perhaps it’s the thrill of the hunt or perhaps it’s feeling like I know something others don’t, but I just can’t get enough.

I recently joined forces with Bistro La Bon, my favorite award-winning restaurant disguised as a Dollar Store, and I can’t wait to help them get the word out about their operation. Insiders will revolt, but I’m letting the world in on a little Plaza Midwood secret.

Vegan Peanut Butter Brownies

Both my boyfriend and roommate can’t eat chocolate and it’s totally cramping my style. Add to that the fact that I work from home and, thus, have no unsuspecting co-workers to coerce with brownies, and you see why I haven’t been baking with chocolate much as of late. Because you know what happens if I do? I have to eat the whole batch by myself. Life is so hard.

Don’t get me wrong; I eat a lot of chocolate. But it’s generally in the form of individual bars rationed for rational human beings rather than entire pans of brownies that must be consumed straight from the pan using a butter knife as a fork. (Not kidding.) A few nights ago I threw caution to the wind, returned to my chocolate roots and made myself some MF brownies. Related: Does anyone want some brownies?

Well. It happened. I caught Ralph and Weaz running drugs out of our apartment. I knew it was only a matter of time.

I wasn’t looking for it. I was just going about my business putting away clothes when I found THIS in my sock drawer:

Chickpea Basil Rice

I’m a big fan of preparing a fat bowl of grains one day and eating it all week long. This is because I am a big opponent of doing dishes and if you make it all on one day you only have to wash that pot once. Laziness breeds ingenuity. That’s where the clap light came from. Also the Abtronic. “Don’t want to do crunches? Here! We will gently electrocute your abdominal muscles until they swell, thus giving the illusion of abs.”

Let’s just stick with saving meal prep time.

My New Favorite Pizza

I’m not going to the movies with my boyfriend any more. Take me to see World War Z, shame on you. Take me to see Elysium… shame on you again AND I’m not coming with you next time AND you’ll have to smuggle your own candy in inside your pants, a skill we all know is best left to a professional who we all know is me.

At least we ate the best pizza I’ve ever had in Charlotte.

Beast Feast 2013

Food trucks might be lost on me. Don’t get me wrong, I totally get the allure of eating carefully crafted food served out of the side of a truck; there’s something unexpected and delightful about the whole street food experience. But the novelty quickly wears off under the soggy weight of Charlotte’s hundred-degree August heat. The best case scenario in this setting is to have multiple trucks churning out food so damn good, people are willing to sweat straight through their spandex waiting in line for it. This is Beast Feast 2013 and this is how I learned to appreciate food trucks no matter how miserable the wait may be.

Happy Shark Week Caturday. This time last year we were prepping for the best party of all time. This year, unfortunately, Weaz has no interest in celebrating sharks (as you can perhaps tell from her expression above). And also I don’t have cable or friends so…

Anyway, her aversion might have something to do with the great white I had swimming around the apartment last year:
