Thursday, June 9th

A long leisurely lunch in a frosty cold mall was enjoyed at Brio. The 'Citrus Garden Salad' $9.95 Fresh Linguine tossed with Spinach, Peppers, Carrots, Scallions, Basil, Cilantro, Dried Cranberries, Slivered Almonds, Lemon Vinaigrette and topped with a spicy citrus glaze.
Morningstar Vegan Grillers and Pasta Salad for dinner.
A Magical Coconut Cookie Bar for dessert.

Frontera Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot.

That pasta dish sounds really interesting! Cranberries, cilantro and scallions on pasta are something I never would have imagined. I might have to break my distaste for pasta and make it...

I love the sound of the pasta! And those magical coconut bars! YUM!!!!

I haven't had chopped relish in so long. Looks yummy. I remember when you used to frequent Brio - but looks like you've found better stuff. The salad looks okay, though.

Hey Now!!!

Michelle, my Pasta Salad did have quite a bit of Vegenaisse. Great for potential bingeing...

VaVa, the Brio 'Pasta/Salad' was pretty strange, but delicious. Thanks!

FF, it was one of the oddest things I've eaten. A Pasta/Salad thing with Dried Cranberries no less.

Morgan, this Pasta/Salad dish is just like something you would make!

Jessica, it is slim pickens for vegans at Brio, as you well know. This Pasta/Salad was an improvement. Post on your blog, dammit.

VF, the Pasta/Salad was certainly delightful. A delightful crazy concoction!
