Dude, Sweet Tomatoes

by sara on September 17, 2012

Yesterday my day started off with a simple question.  “Sara, do you want a Tiff’s Treats gift card?”  WTF KIND OF QUESTION IS THAT YES GIMME THAT RIGHT NOW!  I meant to say, “Yes, please, I would love one, thank you!”  And so here it is, brand new, unused, in my wallet, ready for hot fresh delicious cookies IN MAH BELLY.  It’s not that I don’t trust Foodgarbl readers, but I don’t trust Foodgarbl readers so I intentionally cropped the gift card number from the picture so you guys couldn’t use it.  I sorry.

As if the day could get any better, my mom then brought out this gem.  This is a picture of my parents and me at the March of Dimes walk around 1987.  I am digging the ponytail look and think I might bring it back for my next interview and/or wedding.  Also, please see my Dad’s socks.

The rollercoaster of fun continued after our long day of exercise and yard work when my parents treated me to dinner buffet at Sweet Tomatoes.  This place is dangerous if you haven’t worked out beforehand.  Do yourself a favor and burn at least 1,000 calories before walking foot in the door.  I say that because no one has the common sense to go in and eat only the salad bar.  Not when you have fresh made biscuits, flatbread pizza, pasta, soup bar, fruit, hot out of the oven cookies, fresh cobbler, and all you can swirl soft serve.  Makes me full just thinking about it.

I started off piling my plate full of the most amazing salad.  It was Greek week so they had a lemon vinaigrette that was awesome.

I was pretending to carb load for a race so I got their Greek focaccia pizza and a blueberry muffin and a cornbread muffin.

Then I had a cup of lemon orzo soup.  Oh man was this good.  It kind of looks like old people slop but it was delicious.

I was hurting at this point but I had to make room in my dessert compartment for the most amazing red velvet crumble topped with soft serve vanilla ice cream.

I think I’m going to have some talented person on Etsy make a plaque for me to hang in my kitchen that says the following:

“One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.”

Story of my life.

My Dad is weird and likes to go grocery shopping in the ghetto.  On this particular trip he took me with him and now I too plan on doing all of my shopping gangsta style as well.

When we first walked in they had a display of freshly made aguas frescas including strawberry, cantaloupe, fruit punch, cactus, mango and even horchata.  They gave you samples to try before you committed to such a tough decision.  The cactus was strange but really good!  I went with my standby of cantaloupe though and it was straight money.

Back in the meat and seafood department, they have a guy making fresh guacamole.  Two of these containers was only $4.49!!  This same container at Central Market is at least $7.  Needless to say, sketchy supermercado is where it’s at.
