The last of Pittsburgh

Between finals and getting home, I haven't posted anything, though I have gone out to eat. So, to make up for it:

On one of the nights before finals, J and I went out to eat at some bar sorta place, Union Grill, on Craig Street. I got a nice hummus place and some whole-wheat "spa" pasta. I didn't expect much, but it was pretty tasty. Not something I'd do all the time, but it was a nice change of pace.

Though most of my exam diet was deplorable (the ultimate fritos and coke vegan!), once the exams were mostly over, I had some nice stuff to eat, like this bowl of ramen from Lulu's noodles:

One of my last meals in Pittsburgh was my usual green curry from Spice Island Tea House. Never a bad choice.

I am not even kidding when I say I could eat that green curry every day. It's the perfect mix of flavors. A little sweet, a lot of spicy. 

On our 15+ drive home (we broke it into two parts, the bulk of it being the ride from Pittsburgh to Charlotte), we stopped at Maggiano's. Luckily, our server was a vegan; she pointed out that the normal pasta had egg, but the gf spirals did not. Surprisingly good.

I've not been too creative at home (sleeping 12-16 hours a day) - the most creative thing I've done has been to take fancy ramen packets, add a splash of soy sauce and sesame oil, and cook some vegetables with the noodles (it does taste good...).\

J's mom, K, has been baking up a storm since I got back. I need to take pictures of some of the cookies she's made, they're delicious. As in, "Can I have a cookies? Please can I have a cookie? I really want a cookie, can I have one? ... I put some stuff away, I'm being helpful, can I have a cookie?" delicious. My obnoxious inner child will go to any and all lengths to get a cookie.
