Saturday, January 7th

Tofu Scrambler and Roasted Potatoes $8.95 for breakfast at Cafe Nola..
Carried out a 16 oz container of White Bean Tomato Soup $4.99 from The Common Market for lunch.
It was pretty to look at, but eating wise, not as good as the ingredients would lead one to believe.
Hummus on a toasted Wegman's Everything Bagel for dinner...Mealy Tomato, overly Salty Olives, past-its-prime Spinach...
$1.99 Snickerdoodle for dessert. I just now realized the sign didn't say 'vegan' probably because of the sugar...
I only ate half. It wasn't chewy like a Snickerdoodle should be...
In summation, while not the best food day, this post holds the record for the variety and number of different cameras/cell phones used to cobble together a single day's eats on my blog.

The breakfast looks great. Nice and hearty. The dinner looks pretty good too; aren't all olives super salty?

That breakfast looks amazing. I rarely find a tofu scramble in a restaurant that actually puts veggies other than onions in, and those veggies look good! Bummer about the rest of your meals though, hopefully you'll make up for it tomorrow!

"I only ate half." Wow, those words in that order aren't even in my vocabulary. I salute you, no matter how distasteful that snickerdoodle was. I've decided I'm addicted to sugar in all its forms (actual sugar, chocolate, wine, dates, kabocha squash, beets, what the heck ever) and should probably therefore deny myself these foods. Apart from item (1), however, fat chance. All the other things are superfoods, of course, and must be consumed in some quantity daily for optimum health and longevity.

I just checked out Cafe Nola's website, and they win points for using local produce and hosting an 80's night next week. They also win points for your good looking breakfast.

The breakfast *does* look terrific--otherwise, I believe you in your assertion that the rest was subpar. Oh well, tomorrow is another day.

Oh my, that tofu scramble and roasted (yum!) potatoes looks so good. The rest looks good too, but your descriptions belie the truth.

I can send you some vegan snickerdoodles that will live up to your expectations, but then of course, I could be some sort of serial killer posing as a vegan food blogger. ;-)

I hope you're having a good weekend!

Yes, and not just the number of cameras, but two, count 'em two, shots of food labels! That's got to count for something, right?

Hey Now!!!!

FF, all Olives are super salty??? What you talkin' bout, Willis?

VaVa, you 'rarely find a Tofu Scramble in a restaurant that acutally puts veggies other than onions in'. At least you live near civilization and can actually find Tofu Scramble in a restaurant!

Zoa, I'm telling you, my photographs may not depict it, but these cookies and cake slices of late are obscenely huge. I have no objection, but I'd go into diabetic shock if I ate the entire serving.

Ingrid, yes, if I ever actually opened my own restaurant, a dream, I'd steal about 75% of Cafe Nola's menu/theme.

Stacy, you probably don't have this issue since you are able to keep your diet local, but it can get pretty gross eating out of season.

Miss Rachel, I only bought the giant Snickerdoodle in the first place because of your Christmas post. Fortunately, as you'll see tonight, the other half was chewy. Cool idea though about baking a lethal batch as part of a vegan giveaway.

Blessed Mama, early in my blogging career I was dogged with accusations that I wasn't actually eating vegan. Haunts me to this day. Hence the ingredient labels.
