AHHHH, such a FABULOUS combination! after breakie i had a teeth cleaning appointment. joy! then i went shopping for about an hour before meeting HE (my bestest, bestest, BESTEST friend whom i’m going to miss very, very, VERY much while i’m away) for lunch at none other than real food daily. and yes, bestest becomes a word when it’s used to describe her. i didn’t get anything when i went shopping except for a few vegan eyeshadows. the real highlight of the afternoon was the lunch i had with HE. i didn’t have my camera with me, so it went unphotographed. sorry! i got salisbury seitan with mashed potatoes and gravy, and a small ceasar salad (just incase you care.) however, dessert was so delicious that i decided to whip out the blackberry cam (after taking a bite of the cookie and a bite…er, two bites…of the ice-cream.) take a look:
we didn’t share. that was just mine. haha! she got the same thing but with a chocolate chip cookie instead. okay, so i’m a little bit ashamed to show this next picture…but i will post it anyway. i gotta admit it…i couldn’t finish the cookie! *gasp!* well, i could have, but i didn’t. and the worst part is that i left two measly bites. come on, JB, what’s the matta with you?! in my defense, you know that feeling when you’re just done? simple d.o.n.e? that was me. what can i say? i’m not going to eat something i don’t want to eat. usually i don’t even have dessert at all, but this treat was worth every single bite. so heavenly that i could hear angels singing to me in my ear. i can’t believe i won’t be able to dine at my favorite vegan haven again until november! noooo! good thing there are so many amazing vegan places where i’m moving to!
i just realized how long of a post this is going to be…because i still have yesterday’s raw lunch pictures to show! my mom and i ate at a cute little restaurant called better life cuisine. it’s organic, raw, and vegan…could there be a better combination? we started with a cup of soup to share.
it was perfectly spicey, had SO much flavor, and the little bits of veggies gave it a nice texture. as for those crackers, i only had a couple of bites. they look tasty, but i wasn’t a huge fan. my mom really liked them, though. as for our entrees, i got the veggie salad.
it was great! i didn’t use much of the curry sauce, and actually asked for a side of the bbq sauce they put on top, because that was good. the croquettes were sweet and delicious as well. what i really loved were the onions. i hate raw onion, so i don’t know what they did to them! as for my mommy, she chose a couple of salads from the deli case.
i didn’t try any of her dish, but she loved it! my mom doesn’t like fruit in salads (she actually hates fruit in salads) but she loved that the beet salad had apple in it. funny! she also ordered this…
i had about half of one of those scoops…okay, maybe a little bit more than that. it was so good! it didn’t really taste like tuna (which is a good thing, if you ask me.) my mom was crazy about this stuff, and so was i! i should hit the chef up for the recipe! neither of us wanted dessert, but i had to take a few pictures of the display case because everything looked so beautiful and amazing! why are raw desserts so decadent?!
i’ll leave you with those sweet treats for now, and wish you all a happy rest of the night! cheerio! little tidbit: my grandpa uses “cheerio” in substitution for goodbye. he’s such a cutie. he’s also the type that purposely says happy halloween on christmas, or merry christmas on easter. haha.
