The above is just a serving suggestion. Goddess dressing goes good on everything.
After the tainted pet & baby food scandals, I'm getting leery of eating these Chinese faux meats. Last night we had the 'Chicken Breast'. Served with Imagine Mushroom Gravy, steamed Broccoli and a Baked Spud topped with Sour Supreme.
Lunch today was from Whole Food's Salad Bar: Grilled Tofu, Sundried Tomato Dumplings and Lentil & Tomato Salad Tonight's Dinner was Black Bean Burrito's. Unfortunately, I just noticed the third ingredient of the tortillas is honey. They came out well. Served as above.
Lunch today was at Blue Moon Cafe in Shepherdstown West Virginia. The cafe is known for its outdoor dining but unfortunately, due to Tropical Storm Hanna, we ate indoors. We started with the Tuscan White Bean Bruschetta, ("a savory blend of northern white beans, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, fresh garlic & basil served with toasted ciabatta fingers") which came out looking unlike Bruschetta and more like a pile of beans and some bread crusts. It turned out to be delicious! We loved it! I had the Veggie Wrap ("Lettuce, tomato, onion, cucumber, sprouts, hummus, Jack, and sun dried tomato mayo"). It was just so so. It probably would've been better if it was made w/the cheese & mayo, but I certainly felt good after I ate it.
Veggie Cutlets were on the hot bar today so I had to get some. They were deliciously crisp on the outside, moist and succulent on the inside. Stuffed with rice and mushrooms. As a side I got Roasted Veggies, also delicious.
Lunch today was from Hot Breads Indian Bakery in Herndon, Virginia. The outside is currently nondescript. They just opened next door to Charcoal Kabob in the K-Mart Shopping Center. This is a partial menu, they have many vegetarian entrees. I ordered the Alu Tikka Chaat. "A veggie cutlet in chickpea sauce, onions, mint, garlic and tamarind sauce." Unfortunately, these Veg. Curry Puffs are not vegan. I brought it back to my desk. It was very spicy and delicious! I can't wait to go back and try other things on their menu.
Lunch today was at C.W. Tiffins in Charlestown, West Virginia Open since April, the restaurant is in a restored historic building.
We sat 'outside' in the enclosed patio addition.
Service was very friendly and accomodating.
They had a limited menu for the Labor Day
holiday, and the Veggie Burger wasn't on it.
Our server was sweet enough to ask the chef
if they could make an exception for me and
they did. The Veggie Burger was served on Pretzel Bread with
homemade chips. Even though I specified no cheese and no mayo on my burger, they grated parmesan cheese on my chips. Oh well, it didn't melt so the cheese was easy enough to shake off. Every component of this dish was high quality. Gorgeous ripe tomatoes, warm soft pretzel bread, perfectly cooked chips and a very tasty burger. A store bought previously frozen burger, possibly Gardenburger, but still delicious.
My only concern from viewing this picture is where those grill marks came from. I didn't notice them at the time I ate the sandwich. Oh well. Whatever was on the grill before my order must've surely been burned off before my food hit it.
