SIMPLS Soups: How Are They So Good?

The first time I bought a bowl of SIMPLS soup I felt kind of irritated.

“What the fork!?” I remember thinking as I handed over my credit card for a $7 cardboard container of vegetarian wild rice soup and a tiny piece of bread ($0.25).

“This soup better change my life,” I grumbled.

Actually, it did.

Four More Good Meals I Haven’t Told You About Yet

In no particular order, here are four good meals around Minnesota that I haven’t written about yet:

Breakfast/Brunch At Sara’s Table Chester Creek Cafe, Duluth, Minnesota

For the life of me, I can not get the name of this restaurant right. “At Sarah’s Chester Creek Table.” No, that’s not it. “Sara’s Chester Creek Cafe and Table.” Dammit that’s still wrong. {sighs and Googles it every time}

Sea Salt is notorious for almost always being busy. Whenever the weather is bad, people will joke about how it’s a good time to visit Sea Salt because the line will be short.

Searching For Breakfast in Rochester, Minnesota

This year feels like I’m living a long version of Sex & the City S4:11.

When I watched the show in my earlier 20’s I never really understood Charlotte. Re-watching the series, I never understood her more than during this episode.

A lot of things are hard when you’re dealing with infertility: Facebook pregnancy announcements, your Instagram feed, baby showers, family holiday gatherings, and people giving terrible advice (like anything alluding to relaxing more).

You will truly not know how you’re going to feel about any of these things until you’re confronted with this reality. Sex and the City got a lot of things wrong (and nailed others), but accurately captured many of the feelings around infertility.

A Sports Bar & Sushi: Two More Longfellow Restaurants We Like

Back in November 2017, I wrote about three places located along E. Lake Street in the Longfellow neighborhood of Minneapolis that we really like.

We still like these places and would like to add two more to our growing list of favorites:
