Friday, October 5th

Another good breakfast...
Lunch was the Evelyn's Favorite Pasta - Penne Tossed with Broccoli, Oven-Dried Tomato, Roasted Eggplant, Peppers, Artichoke, Kalamata Olives, Garlic and Pine Nuts at The Cheesecake Factory. I searched the net to see if there was anything new on the menu that was vegan before going and saw the comment on Veg Friendly that said the Evelyn's Favorite Pasta qualified. I hope Anonymous was correct.
Field Roast Franks with TJ's Tots for dinner. I took some gorgeous photos of this meal, but can't get them uploaded. Maybe tomorrow everyone will get to enjoy viewing them.

That pasta looks like a great meal. I'm glad you found something so good there!

Oooh that pasta looks great! One of my friends got that when I was there for the birthday and I thought it looked great then too! It sounded Veg friendly on the menu when I saw it. Isn't their menu ridiculous and overwhelming? I stared at it for 20 minutes and was still clueless. Glad you found something great!

Now you are just teasing us with that photo and with tots. I will be anxiously awaiting tomorrow's post!

Pretty fancy pasta dish! I hope it was vegan too. Pine nuts are pretty special.

That darn camera, it's so stubborn! At least we are familiar with these food items.

As I was catching up on your posts, I thought, "wonder if she'll have something different at the Cheesecake Factory?". And you did - it looks vegan! Was it better than the Roasted Vegetable Salad?

Pasta looks good, I don't think I can have banana and peanut butter though...

Great looking pasta dish. I still haven't been to the Cheesecake Factory, and I don't think I will go unless I "have" to. There are just too many other places that are vegan that I'd choose, but it's nice they started offering another vegan option.

Nice pasta dish! My little sister in law is named Evelyn so I love the name. I told my husband he needs to try the Field Roast franks, they are the only vegan hot dog I like.

Hey Now!!!!

Molly, the dish was good enough that it makes me think there was probably some butter or eggs involved somewhere.

VaVa, everyone else's food at the Cheesecake Factory always looks so great. The extensive menu would be better if there were some marked vegan options.

FF, the Pine Nuts really elevated the dish to whatever the next level is.

GFHTummy, that's another thing that's great about the Cheesecake Factory -- everyone loves it. Hard to have a bad time there.

Ingrid, the pasta dish nice large portion that was good for shovelling in. On par w/CPK's Roasted Vegetable Salad I'd say. But you should still dine elsewhere if you every visit your Virginia Grandma again.

Alessandra, PB & Banana is such a delicious combination! A match made in heaven.

Miss Rachel, the Cheesecake Factory has a great atmosphere. They also have some good vegetarian options like Avocado Egg Rolls and Quesadillas. Otherwise, you're wise to dine elsewhere.

Mary, you should get your hubby to listen to Skinny *ss's hubby.

Skinny *ss, your hubby sounds like a man with a fine palate. My hubby still only eats Smartdogs. His palate isn't refined enough (yet) to appreciate Field Roast Franks.
