Food Porn: An Afternoon in the Life of a Foodie

Author: swampkitty05  //  Category: Columbus, Food Porn, North Market

I woke up this morning with a serious craving for a chocolate croissant. Not just any chocolate croissant – I wanted one of those marvelous chocolatines from Omega Artisan Baking. I got there and was disappointed to find out that she only makes them on Saturdays, but didn’t leave without getting a piece of Boca Negra (black mouth) cake. Paul and I shared a piece last weekend, and this is the most evil, dense, overwhelmingly chocolate thing I have ever tasted in my entire life. If food=sex, boca negra cake = foodgasm.

Boca Negra Cake

I didn’t want to let a trip to the North Market go to waste, so I picked up a few other things before I left.
I’ve been making more of a conscious effort to shop at the North Market regularly as part of my desire to eat local, and have been pleased to find that the quality of the food is much better than supermarket fare at reasonable prices. My first stop was North Market Produce, at which I purchased another nice small bunch of early asparagus. I have a newfound love for asparagus, and can’t get enough of it! Not sure what I’m going to do with it yet, maybe put it in a stir-fry, or make some lovely soup with it, or a tart, or maybe just eat it roasted with some hollandaise.

Next, I stopped at North Market Poultry and Game. When hubby found out I was going to the North Market, he had requested that I get him sesame-ginger noodles if they had it. They didn’t, but they had jerk chicken and noodles, which looked just as delicious. I got a small container to take home to Paul.

After that, I went to Bluescreek Farms Meats to get four pounds of lovely shortribs, so I can make Bourbon Short-Rib Stew and White Cheddar Grits tonight for dinner (pictures and recipe of the finished product to come later).

I also stopped at Bubbles to get a bubble smoothie, but didn’t get home quick enough – I drank it on the way. 🙂

Still craving a chocolate croissant, I decided to hit Panera, where I got a selection of pastries (including chocolate croissant)

along with my lunch, which was Vegetarian Spring Pea and Asparagus Soup with a piece of sourdough bread, which really hit the spot on a rainy afternoon like today.

I had to stop in Giant Eagle to get a few items to make tonight’s dinner, and while I was there, I decided to go across the street to The French Loaf to pick up one of their marvelous apple tarts.

They also had chocolate croissants, so I picked one up to compare with Panera’s, to see which one tastes best.

Now, I’m finally home after a long afternoon out, and am ready to make dinner. Time to go cut my veggies, I’ll be back later with the results of all my hard work. 🙂
