Friday, August 31st

You know...
Lunch was at Red Tomato Cafe, where, in order to get the full value of the Groupon, Mom & I had to order $40 worth of food. I started with the Bruschetta $7 (pretty crazy looking, huh?)
and then had the Capellini $10 for my entree.
Speaking of Groupons, I also used one for a mini 'Soupscription' from Soupergirl. For the next month, I get two soups delivered weekly. Tonight I enjoyed Herb Split Pea and it was very impressive...
Half a Peanut Butter Cookie from Everlasting Life Cafe for dessert.
Coming up tomorrow: Endeavoring to eat more delicious food.

Whoa that bruschetta looks intense! Tasty too! I love capellini with a fresh tomato sauce. I have found that I really enjoy thin pastas, but I haven't been able to find too many thin gluten free pastas. Spaghetti squash it is then ;)

The soupscription sounds fun! Today's soup sounds really delicious. It looks really comforting! The cookie looks great as always :)

Have fun with your endeavors tomorrow! :)

that bruschetta does look crazy, but good. was there any bread under all that topping? the capellini looks tasty too. i was also craving pasta with red sauce today, so we had some for dinner.

hope tomorrow's endeavors prove fruitful! said...

sounds like a fabulous endeavor:) hehe and what a delicious lunch!! i love groupon - i've only used it once, but it was such a great deal! and a soup subscription! How cool!

Is the bruschetta under all that?

Ingrid said...

Wow, the Herb Split Pea looks fantastic! It is one type of soup that I don't know that I could make correctly on my own. Can't wait to see what the rest of your soup-scription delivers!

Re: Daiya wedge eaten cold, I find it to be more reminiscent of Kraft or Velveeta more than a nice sharp cheddar. I still prefer it in its melted state.

The bruschetta looks super good, but my favorite thing is the coy little basil leave stuck in the pasta dish.

Hey Now!!!!

VaVa, it was pretty surprising to see my appetizer delivered on a wooden paddle.

Sara, one of the pieces of toast is shyly peeking out from under the Bruschetta. You can barely see it.

GFHTummy, once you get back to NYC, the Groupons will come fast and furiously.

Alessandra, there were three thin toasted slices of Italian Bread under that pile of Tomatoes, Garlic, Onions, Basil and Balsamic. Very unusual presentation.

Ingrid, you were brave to try the cold Daiya. Guess I've had my vegan cheese hopes dashed one too many times.

Miss Rachel, funny you should say that. I am actually concerned about the Basil Leaf. We'll see tomorrow how The Leaf survived being wrapped up to go when I enjoy the pasta leftovers for dinner with some meatless meatballs.
