Morning! No sunrise photos for you today because I’m just sitting around dunking scones into coffee (recipe to follow)…But first, have I told you how much I love SweetGreen? (Answer: Yes. Here and here and here)Not only are their salads fantastic, but their community-focused work is really impressive — I’m mostly talking about the free Passport fitness classes, of course.
So when they asked me to be part of a SweetGreen customer panel, I was all over it! Last night I joined a handful of other SweetGreen-ers in line for a sweet pick of our choice:I went with the kale caesar per a recommendation (hi, Lauren!). What really sold me on this salad is the freshly shaved parmesan.Tada!Crunchy, creamy, and healthy too. What more could you want from a salad?Actually, that question was asked by our panel hosts, who worked for a third-party branding company hired by SweetGreen.They had us answer some really interesting questions about ourselves — like what book or movie character we’d be most like, and what the last concert we saw was.They also had us imagine we were the president of SweetGreen, and list things we would change; or imagine SweetGreen was a person, and describe his/her personality traits. It was pretty fun to think so creatively! The experience inspired my questions of the day, so be sure to answer them Thanks, SweetGreen! It’s pretty awesome that you care about your customers so much.
Now — back to the scones.Anthony has been out of town for the last week, so I turned to sugar and butter for company. In the form of pumpkin snickerdoodle scones (recipe here).The most crucial part of the recipe comes in its last line: “Scones best eaten the same day.”
I think I can do that.
