Sunday, September 22nd

This morning, I tried recreating a Gardein Breakfast Sandwich using an Ezekiel English Muffin, Yves Breakfast Patties and Daiya Cheese. It was tasty but probably could have benefited from some pressing in a greasy compression device....
Lunch was at Taste Of Burma. Mr. SVegetarian and I split a couple appetizers to start. A 'Fermented Tea Leaf Salad' $8 Pickled Tea Leaf, Cabbage, Tomatoes, Sesame Seeds, Roasted Peanuts, Broad Beans and Garlic Chips all mixed with Seasoning. Nice and crunchy.
and the 'Samosas' $5 with a fascinating Mint Chili Sauce...
An iced cold '33' $5 to wash it all down...
My 'Tofu Pickled Mustard Green' $14 White Tofu with Pickled Mustard Greens, Onions, Cilantro, and Chili stir fried with Garlic and Ginger. Super spicy. I think I would order it again. Not sure.

'Peruvian Purple Potato Soup' from Molly Katzen's The Heart Of The Plate for dinner. If only I had had some Lime to squeeze on top, alas. Perfect grub for a fall-like evening. Those are my feelings...
Some Vegan Cornbread from Dawson's Market on the side, Inca style....

Would I have had dessert if not for the blog? Doubtful. Nonetheless, a Snap! Bar was devoured this evening.
There you have it. A day of international eats. I think I did some other stuff today besides prepare food, seek out food, eat food and blog about food, but I can't think of what it was.

Nice job on the breakfast sandwich! Hope it was tastier than yesterday's wrap, even if it wasn't greasy enough.
Fermented tea leaf salad sounds crazy! Not sure I would be brave enough to order that, but glad you enjoyed it... Were the tea leaves bitter that you could pick out? mustard greens are another really unusual bit of produce I'm not sure I've ever had.
After all that, it's nice to see something "less exotic" like Peruvian potato soup. I didn't have lime either. Wonder what we're missing.

Definitely a nice job on the breakfast sandwich recreation! I kind of prefer homemade breakfast sandwiches, for some reason they taste better to me! Love the exotic lunch, the tea leaf salad looks beautiful and sounds so interesting! The soup definitely looks like the most perfect fall meal. I love chunky veg soups. I think I may have to pick up some kind of chocolate from Trader Joe's tomorrow ;)

You've been a roll with your food lately!

Breakfast looks good but your lunch looked delicious!

I haven't had cornbread in forever. Might have to make some now.

I just tried that Snap bar for the first time. I already knew I wouldn't like the milkiness, but was it my imagination or were the crispies, um, not crisp? I cannot tolerate mushy crisps.

Aaaah, I've heard of Burmese pickled tea leaf salads before and have wanted to try so much! Need to put this on the bucket list for my next US jaunt...

Good looking breakfastwich there! What an exotic awesome lunch- the tea leaves are a new one for me too, cant say i have tried them-but i do love pickled greens. Sounds like your dish is too spicy for me but chinatown sells packages of pickled mustard greens.....
Your dinner soup has some impressive produce in there! Now that it is "officially" fall i will start soup making again- the corn bread was a good call. I am pro things to dunk in soup. I usually make do with some pita chips but cornbread cant be too hard to make. I also love a good glob of hummus or pesto ontop of my chunky veggie soups for some extra Ooomph, but the lime sounds great

Making a breakfast sandwich is a great idea. I've got to do that. It's been lots of oatmeal for me lately and I need a change.

Really great eats all around. So much variety and definitely autumn food. I especially love the looks of your lunch!

Hey Now!!!!

FF, get thee to a Burmese Restaurant and order a Fermented Tea Leaf Salad ASAP. It has your name written all over it --Let Phet Thoke. That's your name isn't it?

Sarah, what Chocolate did you get at TJ's? I miss your old blog.

VGG, I've totally been on a food roll. It's not easy to keep it going though and it is so bad when the food roll stops.

Abby Bean, my Snap! Bar be snappin! It may have been a little too sweet, but my Crispies were Crisp.

Hannah, Motherhome Myanmar Cuisine? No up-to-date reviews or a menu online. You may need to wait for your next visit state-side, as you said.

Unknown, if I could get to Chinatown, oh the eating good time I would have (ignoring all the carnage on display).

RVs, a lot of Oatmeal? It must really be cooling down up there.
