Since I've been been eating healthier, and less, as of late, one thing that I've tried to do when we go out is to just order an appetizer and a drink. Case in point: when we visited The Millworks with friends a few weeks back, I just went for the wildflower cocktail (LOTS of lavender, fair warning) + the urban picnic, aka the cheese plate pictured below.* I've written about their amazing cheese plate before (see this post), but since the menu here is seasonal, it changes regularly. I can't remember exactly what the meats and cheeses were, but the pickled beets, asparagus and carrots had me at hello. Also -- how beautiful is the presentation? I'm already planning a mid-summer trip just to see how they've changed it up.
*If you go the drink + app route, be warned this is definitely big enough to feed two. I shared liberally with the rest of our party and still left full.
