Foodie Weekend

This past weekend Emily and I took a short road trip to visit Christine G. during her spring break. Usually our visits include some kind of big cooking event (i.e. Christmas, Easter... etc.) Even though there was no big feast to celebrate we managed to cook up a storm and visit all the local "Foodie" places in Ann Arbor, MI.

Spring had definitely arrived at Whole Foods. The place was packed and buzzing with activity as well as stunning tulips.

The veg display was a work of art. We bought some triple cream French cheese & some golden raspberry preserves that was suggested by the cheese man at Whole Foods. It made a lovely appetizer.

This is only an 1/8th of the cheese display at Zimmerman's. Zimmerman's was so packed you could barely move or see the shelves. Christine said it is like that all the time. The food is just that good.

We bought some bread and bagels and then dashed out of the crush of people. If you ever have a chance to go there you MUST. It is an amazing experience.

Lunch at Zola's Cafe -- a fabulous place, again, absolutely buzzing with activity. However, they really know how to handle crowds. We were seated quickly and our food came out shortly after we ordered. They are known for their wonderful crepes. Emily and Christine sampled the Spinach Cheese Crepe and the Strawberry Vanilla Crepe. They really enjoyed them. Also, Zola's has a wonderful selection of coffee and tea. Another MUST STOP.

There are more "Foodie" things to share but I thought I would save it for another post. But I must say -- I had a wonderful time! Christine is a thoughtful hostess and Em is a ton of fun to take a road trip with! Where are we going to go next time girls?
