Happy Sunday sunshines! Oh my lanta, can I just please gush to you guys how incredible dinner was last night? No... ? :-(
Well I'm going to anyway because I've spent all of my Sunday so far in solitude--which is ideal for the introvert in me, of course! I just have this overwhelming urge to spill the beans to anyone about Blissful Supper's first pop up dinner! Now you might be wondering, "What in the world is Kristine talking about now??" Or you might not be. Who knows! I'll try my best to explain anyway if you care to listen--or I guess read in this case :-)
Lila (@lilanattalie) and Alexa (@alexafuelednaturally) are the two brilliant masterminds behind Blissful Supper. They held their first pop-up dinner last night which consisted of a 5 course plant based vegan meal curated from local San Diego produce. What I thought was absolutely adorable was their main purpose behind as to why they wanted to host this--they simply wanted to bring their vision to life through food and through the food, they had hopes of connecting the San Diego community and that they did with flying colors.
I am so grateful to be apart of their first pop-up dinner and glad I dragged Leia (@marleiaa) along as my date :-) We met some phenomenal people such as Halina of Lina Flows (@linaflows) and Kaylie of Purely Kaylie (@purelykaylie) on Instagram--be sure to check out their gorgeous accounts!
For these incredible ladies to plan, envision, create, and essentially execute this dinner with flying colors with just a month prior to planning was so awesome to me. I would most definitely be interested in attending their second pop-up dinner as soon as they announce it!
Heads up, the lightening in my pictures got a bit worse as the evening wore on so please bare with me and most importantly, enjoy!
I was so excited about these because I literally just made Mexican elotes last week (previous blog post, too!! Disregard shameless plug hehe). These ladies did not disappoint!!
I basically inhaled this dish. Leia looked at me with disgust *sobs* :-(
Inhaled this, too. Leia was doing a terrible job helping me slow down with eating but I couldn't help eating so fast! The flatbread was homemade and the tomatoes were so, so sweet. They actually purchased them from the Little Italy farmer's market--literally one of the best farmer's market in my opinion :-)
I was finally hitting a wall after I scarfed this down. Incredible. Just incredible. I kept reapplying a layer of almond parmesan because that was just incredible, too. So incredible like Future's song in his album "HNDRXX"
The star of the show. Oh my goodness, you should've seen the vegan food baby I had by the end of the night!! Me and Leia were cracking up so bad, man! I'm on the hunt for that oat crumble recipe. I need this in my life again, and again, and again, and again.
