Afternoon Eats

I had a fun afternoon and evening with lots of good eating! Starting around 3 p.m. with some dessert with my friend Megan. She spent the first month of her summer in Peru doing research in the jungle, so it was really great to both be in St. Louis at the same time.

We spent our afternoon at La Bonne Bouchée and had some tasty treats!

They served us bread before we ordered. It’s the best French bread rolls that just fall apart as you butter them:

We both ordered iced coffees:

I also ordered a chocolate biscotti:

My brother Ryan was ready to party:
