Sometimes it's okay to take a break from your work to meet a friend for lunch.

Sometimes, those lunches can turn into an afternoon of walking through town, shopping, lounging in sunny lawns, and chatting about anything & everything.

And sometimes when you spend so much time talking & walking, you work up an appetite and need to find dinner...

In times like this, you will sometimes go back to the same restaurant you ate at two nights before...because it's just that good.

And sometimes, you feel crazy and order feta-filled pastries for dinner and your friends will sometimes order champagne.

Spinach, squash, feta, and pine nut pithivier with creamed cauliflower. Get. In. My. Belly.

But make no mistake-it is ALWAYS good to order dessert.

If you're in Oxford, take the 10 minute walk to The Rickety Press. Nestled in Jericho, this gastropub is freshly redone, has an amazing friendly staff, and is the perfect place to go with a friend.

Try the Pithivier. I'd never heard of one before, but now I never want to live without it.

What's a way your day can (sometimes) take a turn for the better?
