Vena's Graduation Dinner
Vena's friends, Daisy and Edlyn, threw a surprise graduation dinner for her at True Food Kitchen in Santa Monica. Apparently there was interest go, and even better, no one spoiled the surprise (!).
In addition to all the current and former UCLA Geography dorks, Vena's friends were also there in abundance. Daisy, LiHao, Edlyn, Kevin, Grant, as well as her brother Aaron. Quite a large crowd, even if a few did escape for a bit to watch the Warriors game go into overtime. *grins*
Food was solid, the vegan influence was definitely interesting, and the seating on the patio was just right for the group. Throw in a bunch of us who have no shame ordering chocolate cake and strawberry rhubarb (was it a pie? whatever it was, it was tasty) for dessert...
Photos at the end are from earlier in the day. Baked a few more dan tat. These were perfect-- the earlier batch was a tad overbaked.
