Food & A Weather Report

An unexpected snow fell in the DC region today.
Lunch was at La Mezzaluna Cafe, where a bowl of fresh salad for the whole table starts each meal...
and butter-free Garlic Knots are specially made for those who don't eat dairy.My Penne Pasta with Broccoli and Marinara Sauce. There was about a head of Garlic in the sauce. No complaints here.
Dinner was Zoa's Emperor's Soy Curls and Roasted Brussel Sprouts. This was my first Soy Curl experience and thanks to Zoa, it was beautiful and painless.
Frontera Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot.

I love that cute little bird foot photo. Can't wait for some snow around here.
And with a salad like that at the table and dairyfree garlic knots, who needs an actual meal??

Your soy curls look fantastic, and thanks for the trackback :-) Aren't they great and easy to work with?

Bird footprints are always adorable. I see a lot of them here, though...

I love the cute bird prints!

Looks like an exceptional food day! I think pasta with red sauce, bread, and salad it my favorite thing to eat...I could eat it everyday. And the soy curls look delish too. I've got to get my hands of some of those.

Hello, Ladies & Germ!

Thanks for your kind comments. I loved all the little birdy foot prints in the snow and all the garlic I ate.
