Lunch Date With My Sister4/27/2014 07:45:00 pm
We've started making it a bit of a habit that my sister, Eleanor, and I will go for a lunch date together when I'm home over the week. I meet Eleanor during her school lunch break, and we'll spend the hour either at Belmont Picture House cafe or Books and Beans. These are both places that we wouldn't usually go for a school lunch, so its a nice treat during the school week for Eleanor.
This time, we decided to go to Books and Beans. The cafe is adorable. The walls are lined with second hand books that you are allowed to take out and read over coffee and you can buy them too. For the first time, I actually bought a book from them- a huge book about Athens in the classical period. I was scoffed at by Eleanor, but that's what I'm studying right now so I thought it would be useful.
We always try to go to this one corner of the book shop, where there are only three tables, so its quieter and enclosed. We also always get a toasted panini from them, which comes along with salad and some crisps. And as there are always so many paninis to pick from, we decided to go for a spicy meatballs panini and a chicken tika and cheddar one, then half it and share them with one another. Since it was another cold day in Aberdeen, we also got a hot chocolate each to go along with it.
I love having these lunches together, it all started with our older sister too, but now that she works, she can only come for weekend lunch dates. But its a perfect opportunity to chat away to each other and feel grown up. Its become some what of a tradition, that I hope continues.
