p.s. We had a pretty good week of eating while we were on the road. Here are some of the highlights!
Cheyenne, WY: Anong Thai. With three locations in WY, this place is a goldmine. The panang curry was among the best I’ve ever had.
Ogden, UT: Sonora Grill. They have a vegan menu, and I ordered the crispy avocado tacos. It was a HUGE amount of food that I absolutely could not finish. Whoever thought to fry an avocado was a mad genius, though.
Twin Falls, ID: 4 Roots Juice Bar and Cafe. I had a taco salad with this walnut-mushroom taco “meat” that was outstanding, and a vegan chocolate chip cookie for later.
Boise, ID: Thai Cuisine. My dad’s favorite place in Boise, and one we visit every time we’re in town. Amazing people, amazing food.
Mitchell, OR: Tiger Town Brewing Company. VEGAN WINGS in a town of 130 in the middle of Oregon. Hands down my favorite find this trip.
Our house is on the market. That means we have to keep it clean basically every minute, so the goal for this week is to spend as little time in the kitchen as possible, while still eating relatively balanced meals. Here goes:
I was out of town all last week, and even though the Christian conference I went to had a TON OF GREAT VEGAN FOOD INCLUDING DESSERT (the world is changing, people, the world.is.changing)…I am missing my normal food routine.
With baseball season out of the way and just one evening appointment this week, I’m going to practice a little care for myself by making sure to choose dishes that are nutritionally balanced and full of good stuff that I can’t always get when travelling.
Sunday: I took my green curry paste out of the freezer, so we’re going to have that One-Pot Lentil Dal with Vegan Naan.
Tuesday: eat out … lately, I’ve been really digging the Disco Chick’n from Hip City Veg. And a few weeks ago when we were there, they had a vegan strawberry shake that was to die for. Strawberries are fruit.
Wednesday: If we can find the right kind of jackfruit (I’ll keep you posted if you remind me), we’ll try BBQ Jackfruit Sandwiches with a side of raw carrots.
Thursday: Vegan Mac and Cheese – a recipe I haven’t tried before! We’ll have a big salad for some green, too, obviously.
When this posts, we will have just gotten back from Ecuador. The fridge will be bare, I won’t have slept on the plane, and we’ll need to go grocery shopping and feed ourselves and unpack and catch up on new episodes of Sherlock.
So, I’m going for another easy week:
Monday: Jumbo Chickpea Pancakes. I’ll make ours perhaps with teensy tiny mushrooms and a little Trader Joe’s beefless crumbles to go along with the avocado and hummus.
Tuesday: we have an appointment at the dinner hour in South Philly, so we’ll probably go sample the vegan offerings at this fun little spot. You’d never know this little hole-in-the-wall would have a HUGE range of vegan goodies, from Caesar salads to dessert!
Saturday: post-baseball game homemade pizzas – we’ll use Daiya mozzarella or Miyoko’s if we’re feeling splurgy, plus Lightlife veggie bacon & pineapple or Lightlife pepperoni & black olives. Old school, with a vegan twist.
