Dining In/Out

I went to visit my parents and go to a few concerts and celebrate my dad's birthday, so I was out of town for half of June. I was cooking during that time, for parties and family dinners and things, but didn't get too many pictures. I did get a pictures of the meals the boy and I got at Blossom Cafe, a vegan restaurant in NYC. We ordered takeout, and it was really really yummy!!

So here is some food that someone else cooked...

My lunch - "Portabello Panini - Grilled portobello mushroom, zucchini, peppers, and v-soy cheese with spinach walnut pesto on foccacia bread" This was so delicious. The pesto was awesome. I had it with a side of sweet potato fries. My only criticism was that panini is supposed to be PRESSED and it wasn't at all.

The boy's lunch = "Soy Bacon Cheeseburger - Grilled soy burger topped with caramelized onions, v-soy cheese, v-soy bacon, lettuce, and chipotle aioli" He had a side of herbed potato salad. His main criticism was that the description (as above) mentioned neither mushrooms, nor tomatoes, both of which he dislikes. Once picked off, he said it was one of the best burgers he's eaten (and he's an omni! *gasp*)

The dessert! The boy had already taken a bite when I said "NOO! Take a picture first!!" This is a piece of vegan cheesecake. It had the texture more of a Ricotta cheesecake -- obviously from the tofu, but a nice lemony zing and it was SO delicious! It really has me motivated to try and make a vegan cheesecake! Stay tuned...

This wasn't part of my lunch, but Michael Stipe sends his regards. I got to see him both in the pouring rain at Jones Beach and at Madison Square Garden.

Those meals look so good, I could probably eat them both right now. Yum.
