Back in January I went into town with a friend to see a super cool dinosaur exhibit. Dinosaurs are cool! This one had huge screens where dinosaurs roamed around and looked at you and did dinosaur things. It was pretty fun. We were the only adults there without kids, but dinosaurs are for all ages! My favourite dinosaur is the stegosaurus. They had Steve the Stegosaurus wandering around in the background. But you could get up close with Princess the T-Rex.
It was nice to be out and about. If you ignore the fact that the river water is disgusting and would likely kill you if you dipper a toe in, Brisbane is quite pretty. It was also a lovely cool and overcast day.
Because we were in the area, we decided to take a little walk and do to Vegerama at West End for lunch.
We all started with the beautiful Liver Cleansing Juice ($8) that I fell in love with last time.
Ashleigh had the cannelloni that I had last time, and also a side of Roast Garlic Vegetables ($7), which I shared with her.
Bec and I both had the Sweet Potato Gnocchi ($17.50), which I had heard a lot about. This was nice, but I was a little meh about it after my high expectations. The gnocchi were good, but the chive cream sauce was oddly cold and the king brown mushrooms needed a bit more seasoning. Also, a teeny serving!
For dessert, Ashleigh and Bec both got the Chocolate Cheesecake (sorry, I am not sure on the price). I tried a little bit, and I am glad I just had a little bit because it had a lingering taste of coconut fat. But very moreish as well. I probably would have nommed a whole slice even knowing that it would make me feel sick. Tasty.

A throwback photo to Shauna, who is sleeping in a very silly position. Shauna belonged to a staff member at work, and sometimes used to stay upstairs in the intern flat. Sadly she is no longer with us. She used to sleep with me when I was on call and drool on my pillow!
