Thanks for dropping by mmm-yoso!!! Kirk and Ed(from Yuma) are sweltering. Cathy somehow escaped the heat and discovered a treat.
This weekend was a scorcher! On Saturday, the temperature was 99• in the shade of our backyard. I wasn't too hungry and also was seeking a place to cool down. The Mister and I decided that driving West might yield some sort of option for a meal as well as air conditioned comfort. (The light meal is a future post.) When we were finished eating, we headed across the parking lot to Mitsuwa Marketplace.
We wanted to see what was on sale and maybe grab a cold beverage and snack as a 'dessert'. The automatic sliding glass doors opened and this stand was right in the middle of the Lobby.
Well. You know I pulled the camera/phone out of my pocket and started snapping away...
Plastic food models fascinate me, and the ones here are beautiful. There are 18 crépes to choose from: 16 sweet and two savory (the savories are hot- tuna with cheese and tuna with pizza sauce and cheese).
We placed an order and were told to wait on the far side of the booth setup.
In just a few minutes, our order ( a #12) was ready. ($5.50). A fresh made, not too sweet-battered crepe was filled and handed to us in the heavy duty folded paper cone. Filled with fresh whipped cream, blueberry preserves (not overly sweet) and a very good quality green tea ice cream (we had the choice of vanilla or green tea ice cream). Tasty, not too sweet and a delightful dessert for the two of us.
The signs show that the last day will be July 14, so stop by if you have a chance; it's good.
