Hi interwebz. Did you miss me? I completed my first week at my new job and so far I love it! I’m working a bit with basic cell culture which is a big change in my otherwise animal oriented/molecular bio based world. I will be doing things regarding Immunology and knock out mouse lines, fun non? I find it particularly interesting how the body responds to sickness or disease so this should be a very good fit for me professionally speaking. I’m very excited to learn! Before, I wax poetic about disease models, let’s bring it back to some other passions of mine: food+fashion.
Food: We had the opportunity to eat at Salt of The Earth and our minds were blown! It was nothing short of fabulous! The first photo is a shot of the dining area. The 1st floor is first come, first serve and you sit at community benches so you can chat to your neighbors! The upstairs is reservation only and probably only houses about 30-50 people! I felt like a VIP!
Here is a shot of my starter which was venison tartare with blood orange reduction, white chocolate+juniper oil. My main was pork loin+ celariac root puree, braised red cabbage & apple cider demi glace.
Fun: We had a little shopping trip to pick up a few last things to help us settle into our new place and Nate bought me these pot holders from Sur la Table. Also, how sexy are the fennel collection of the Le Creuset line?! Insane. I am obsessed with Paris and cannot wait to go back! If you missed my week long series recap of our trip, you can watch a summary iMovie we made here.
Fashion: It’s still cold, even though I was teased with a carrot of warm weather for a hot minute last week. Layers+opaque tights=win. I’m such a lady, what am I doing? A curtsy? wtf.
Fleur de Lys sweatshirt: Delia’s
Gray tank: H&M
Skirt: Gap sale!
Tights: target or Tar-jayyy
1. Would you eat raw deer (venison)? It was totally tasty! Bambi, surrender yourself to my stomach.
2. Fave new find in a kitchen store or can’t live without appliance?
