Heading back to my alma mater (how strange to say this) today!

Breakfast at Absolute Bagels, Upper West Side, NYC: 

2016-08-09 08.33.09

Bite of Caitlin’s wheat bagel w/blueberry cream cheese

Sort of matches my shoes! Solid bagel with cream cheese but there’s too much filling for me to enjoy this. So nice to catch up and see you again, Caitlin! <3

Pumpernickel bagel w/mozzarella, tomato & vinaigrette

First time ordering this here β€” delicious! I vaguely remember their smoked salmon bagel being solid, but I think I prefer this. The vinaigrette is a bit more onion-y than I’d like, but I can live with that.

Snack in Springfield, MA:

Green plum

My last green plum! :'(

Snack on the bus:

2016-08-09 13.59.32-1

Pumpernickel bagel

SO CLOSE TO AMHERST. It’s a strange feeling to both love and hate a place, but I’m very excited to come back.

Snack at Reader to Reader:

2016-08-09 15.35.32-1

Chocolate chip walnut cookie β€” chocolate chocolate cookie

Back at my favourite haunt in town! And of course, gotta supply the office with some sugar. πŸ˜‰ Best cookies come from Levain Bakery in NYC.

Dinner at La Veracruzana, Amherst, MA:

2016-08-09 20.02.38-1

Bean burrito w/chunky guacamole

  Solid meal with Sylvia. I also tried her tamarind drink β€” very, very tart. Tastes like a smashed up tamarind. Sylvia and I also ran into Long (or well, we noticed him walking on the streets and texted him); hurray for impromptu catch-up sessions!
