Happy Much-Belated V-Day

My Valentine's Day was celebrated a day early because actual Valentine's Day was my aunt's funeral. I won't dwell on that too much... for this should be a happy entry.

So ... what happened on such a commercialized, overrated holiday? :P I used it as an excuse to go out of course! Hahah. Max and I went to Crepevine (again!) for lunch. I enjoyed a club sandwich and he got a New Orleans Benedict -- English muffin, crab cake, poached egg, and thousand island (?) sauce. Man! Every bite was an explosion of flavor. I definitely want to get it either next time or the time after or... ;) I just know I'll be coming back again hehe.

New Orleans!

Me & My Club Sandwich

After being stuffed and tummily (yes, tummily) satisfied, we took the Rockridge BART to SF for some shopping. We came back with goodies from the usual preppy stores (i.e. A&F and HCO) and I got my early birthday present! My MacBook is now shielded with a clear plastic casing. I have to admit... it adds to the weight :(

Carefully selected cover :)

On our way back, we stopped by Safeway and bought ingredients for our dinner. Dinner came out to be... lamb rack, instant-mix mashed potatoes, and boiled broccoli. I made currant-oatmeal cookies for dessert (and also will be making these endlessly-well-commented cookies again for Ace of Cakes)! We enjoyed our delish food while watching Star Wars: Episode IV.


Currant Oatmeal Cookies

As for V-day presents, I gave Max a liter of Canada Dry Green Tea Gingerale. Avant Cards + CKI roses for Becky and Alice. In reciprocation, Becky and Alice got me two orange roses (my fav) and cookies with strawberry filling.
