Visiting Jenny (and my new place!) in Ann Arbor today! 

Emma, Claire and I will also be cooking dinner tonight. Hopefully our “upscale” menu executes well.

Sip of Emma’s mango juice

The ginger was very strong, but I like the intensity. It cut the greasiness of the fries. As expected, the mango juice was sweet and almost had a syrupy consistency.

I’m into the buttery lettuce.

Spoonful of Claire’s chocolate covered pretzel caramel (Emma’s cookies & cream is underneath)

A bit icy. I like their freshly made waffle cones though.

Garlic sauteed green beans — veggie lasagne

Both dishes were a bit too salty.

Flourless chocolate cake

Tastes like the inside of a lava cake. Mmm.
