Sunday, February 24th

Breakfast was the Tofu Scramble $9.95 at...wait for it...yes! yes!... Le Pain Quotidien! At last! I sat at the communal table in order to get the full experience and devoured about a half a jar of the communal table jam. Yay me! Can't wait to try every clearly labeled vegan option on the menu (of which there are quite a few!)
So excited this location opened closer to my home & work (can ya tell?). (This annoying Mother & Daughter would not get out of the picture).
Boca Chickn Patties with Steamed Broccoli for dinner.
An LPQ Apple Cannele for dessert. I'm a little late to the LPQ Apple Cannele game. Here is an explanation of the dessert from 2009.
An LPQ Hazelnut Flute for breakfast tomorrow.

I've never heard of an apple cannele. It looks good and sounds even better!

It sounds like you were pretty excited to eat there, and I can't blame you. The scramble looks fantastic.

Nicely done on making up for yesterday's lunch. A good tofu scramble, and bread (to accompany the jam?) always wins in my book.

I'm hoping your WFH streak continues this week.

Oh! I adore LPQ, so glad you have one close to you now. I read a bio of the founder and altho he is omni he is quoted as saying "i think that vegetarian and vegan food is the future" and he plans 30-40% of the LPQ menu to be veg
The asian salad (with tofu) is a favorite of mine. So is the meditteranean platter. And everything else.
I was at liquiteria earlier today, liquid lunch for me.
Hope you avoid the cubicle this week too.

I don't know if I've ever seen you this enthused about a place yet? That's great that they opened and the food looks really delicious! Crusty bread with jam sounds amazing (what kind of jam?) and the tofu scramble looks great. The apple cannele looks AMAZING! It's great that they label all of the vegan options clearly. It's such a small detail but it makes a huge difference. I always find that I have a much better experience when everything is labelled and I don't feel like I'm being a pain in the ass asking about ingredients.

I never thought I'd see that many exclamation points in one of yr posts.
Haha, how did the rest of the communal table feel about you hoarding the jam jar?
The cannele sounds delicious. I had never heard of it either. Can't wait to see what the hell a flute is.

Hey Now!!!!

Molly, I'd never heard of an Apple Cannele either. Yes, LPQ holds a special place in my heart since my first time at one was on vacation in NYC several years ago.

Ingrid, LPQ would be a great place for you and Grandma to have lunch next time you come to visit.

Unknown, hooray for another LPQ fan! At the rate the DC area is progressing in comparison to NYC, we should have a Liquiteria in about five years. I forced myself to go to the cube so I could stay home for the next two days.

VaVa, I'm glad my enthusiasm came through in the post. I haven't been this excited since Loving Hut opened, it's true. The Jam was possibly 'Five Fruit'?

FF, as a recent patron of LPQ, you should know that there is more than enough Jam for everyone in the restaurant to enjoy. FWIW, I was the only person at the communal table during my meal, but I was totally ready to commune had the opportunity presented itself.
