too much foooooooooood

It's Vegan MoFo, bitches!

You know how it is when friends come to visit. You end up eating out a lot, and eating way more than you should. Today has definitely been one of those days.

For brunch, we went to West Town [formerly Bleeding Heart] and ate like crazy people. I got the Vanilla Bean Buttermilk Belgian Waffle [made vegan, of course]. It was outstanding. Perfectly crunchy, thick, not overly sweet, with just the right amount of vanilla flavor to make it truly vanilla-y without feeling fake. I can highly recommend it [as I can also recommend the Vegan S’mores Pancakes, which are chocolate pancakes, layered with marshmallow fluff, marshmallows on top, chocolate syrup, and maple syrup. They are definitely a dessert, though, and they are easily two separate days worth of treat.]

While hitting things like Myopic Books, Reckless Records, Buffalo Exchange, and Quimby’s, we stopped at The Wormhole for coffee. I got a soy chai that was delicious.

Now, we were not hungry, but they were about to go back to Iowa, so I couldn’t let them leave without going to Native Foods! They got chili and nachos, both of which they [omnivores] were greatly pleased with! I got the Butternut Squash Polenta Bites and some Sweet Potato Fries [with the sweet sweet ranch dressing, I must figure out how to make you…] The sweet potato fries were amazing, as always, but I was also very pleased with the polenta bites. The polenta was creamy and kind of pesto-ish almost, and the butternut squash was so nicely roasted and whatever they dressed it in was savory and crazy delicious.


Note: I think this is the nicest picture my phone has ever taken. I didn’t even have to adjust levels or anything! And no picture of the sweet potato fries, ’cause I gobbled them up before I even thought to take a picture. Hell, there was another polenta bite here when I got it…

So yeah. I’m stuffed, I think I’ve eaten far more than my normal daily intake, and it’s not even 5:00. Guh. Time for food sleepies…
