When I got in Friday, I wasn't in the mood for much after being on a bus for 3 hours. We went to Veggie Heaven and had some yummy fried food. Then we went to an improv comedy show at ColdTowne. Lots of laughs, and then we got home and crashed. When we woke up Saturday morning, we biked to the farmers market and picked up some fresh produce for the potluck we were going to that night. It was a macrobiotic potluck, held by a student at the Natural Epicurean school that I am considering attending next year. I don't know much about macrobiotic diets, and decided to just make something really simple.
And a money shot of the spread. We had a great time, and met a lot of new people. We ended up hanging out with a few Sunday night to see the Roller Derby, and saw a couple others around town later in the week.
My friend I was staying with works like a "normal" person (8-5, M-F) so I was left to myself most of the day. I mainly rode around town, did some shopping, and ate ate ate!
Here are some random meals from the week.
Falafel waffle from DaVine Foods, a little bus with a kitchen parked in an empty lot, surrounded by green. Super awesome, with a side of kick ass hummus and raw carrots. Totally worth the 2 mile bike ride. I also had it with a side of Chocolate Mock Shake. Tasted just like a chocolate shake you would enjoy in a diner, just much much better.
Since Mother's burned down, and they may not be rebuilt for a while, I had to find some kind of substitute. That would be Bouldin Creek Coffeehouse. They serve all kinds of yummy meals, mostly vegetarian, and all vegan friendly. Breakfast is served all day, but when I went for lunch, I enjoyed this light broccoli and tofu salad with ginger miso dressing and a side of their delicious vegan corn bread, which I tried first with the vegan soul food plate (beans, greens, and corn bread). Mmmm, cornbread
I have a lot more, but it will have to wait for Awesome Awestin part 2.
