Friday Lunch, Workout and Good Company

What a lovely day off! My mom and I decided to try somewhere new for lunch.

My sister and her friends recommended this place in Alexandria, an old warehouse converted into a cool ‘canteen’. The decor was beautiful! Lovely fresh produce, plants and homemade spreads and condiments.

Each table had different centre pieces. Pictured here is a tray with chilli, garlic, onions, jars with twigs and pot plants. This was my favourite! Gorgeous colours.

We sat here, with a big butternut between us.  We spent a good couple of hours soaking up the sun light and chatting away.

I had the cauliflower, celeriac potato & leek infused soup with parmesan and sour dough bread on the side. It was delicious! I want to try replicate it at home sometime this week. Full of flavour, thick and creamy.

My mom had the toasted sourdough with organic avocado and fresh tomato with olive oil and coriander. This bread was amazzzzing, and the tomatoes were juicy and well flavoured. We ended up ordering another one to share :).

After lunch we went to visit my grandparents and then it was time for Body Attack, which a good sweat as usual. I then popped by to visit Liv and had a quick cuppa tea.

Time now to head for my cousins for dinner. It is always a fun dinner filled with lots of kids running around, good food and very special company.

Happy Friday!

What do you like to do when you have a day off?
