No, I didn't hit an artery, above is my Almond Butter and Blackberry Jam treat from last night. Pretty frightening huh? Happy Halloween! Lunch today was carryout from a lovely restaurant in Reston, Cafesano. They have lots of beautiful veg-friendly items. And best of all, everytime I've ordered from them and said 'NO CHEESE', there has been NO CHEESE! That really means a lot to me. This is my Avocado & Tomato Wrap back at work -- with NO CHEESE.
Saturday's lunch was at my current favorite restaurant, Mimosa. Unfortunately, I only remembered to take pics of our appetizers: Edamame and Sweet Potato Tempura. Both were excellent as always. Today started out very chilly and so a cozy pub was in order for lunch. We went to Hunters Head Tavern in Upperville. They are very vegetarian friendly, not so much vegan friendly. I had the Boca Burger. Can't get that at home! (I do love the atmosphere here).
Lunch today was at Lucky Star Lounge. The majority of items on their menu are vegetarian. There was a street fair in Old Town Front Royal today, hence the happy faces. This is my 'Stargarita' which really gave me a great buzz. Above is Mr. SV's spicy veggie chili. He said it had interesting depth of flavor. He never said that about my chili. This is my Veggie Sandwich w/Meunster Cheese on the side. It had Hummus and Sprouts and was supposed to have Avocado, but I didn't spot any. I was flying from the drink and really wasn't sure what I was eating. Lucky Star Lounge: Go for the drinks and the atmosphere.
For my lunch I got the Mizuni Sansai Noodles (Soba
Noodles) with sauteed soy gluten, wood ear mushrooms, Japanese parsley, bracken & vegetables, tossed with seacress(green nori flake-gomashio). For our anniversary dinner, I got Curry Supreme -- Chunks of soy protein stewed with broccoli, potatoes, mushrooms,carrots & green peas in a special Japanese curry sauce.
This is what you get when you order the Sunshine Veggie Sandwich (described on the menu as "a healthy vegan sandwich with Lettuce, Diced Tomato and Avocado) from Mimosa. There were none of those of those items on this sandwich. Although there was some Tomato Salsa on the side. What they served was Carrots, Onions and Mushrooms, sauteed with some sort of batter, atop a regular hamburger bun. It came with Zucchini Matchsticks. All very delicious, but kinda strange that it was nothing like the menu described.
