Oh my word! I am so blown away by all of your comments, tweets, and emails regarding yesterday’s post. You are all so incredible – I can’t say it enough. Now, I have a proposition for you – and you can tell me what you think.
Due to the enthusiastic response, I was thinking of starting a little movement of sorts surrounding the idea that “food is just a backdrop to life” theme. It would be great to have bloggers, readers, Tweeters, and Instagramers send in photos of themselves enjoying life (i.e being in “their element” or doing something that brings them joy). I would post the pictures and captions on a certain day and we could all support each other enjoying life! How fun would that be?! Would you be interested in participating? Please let me know!
Last night was a blast! Matty and I went to see Sarah McLachlan in concert at the Bank of America Pavilion. My mom and dad purchased the tickets for me for my birthday and, graciously, Matty agreed to go, even though he knew next-to-nothing about Sarah McLachlan. Bless his heart.
The venue is right on the water and overlooks the entire city of Boston. It really is quite a sight!
Before the concert, Matty and I had dinner at Yard House, a casual-upscale restaurant known for its vast beer selection. We stuck to water and dinner, though! Within the past year, Yard House added a special gardein section to their menu, which features vegetarian and vegan-friendly salads and sandwiches. I was pretty excited to give one of them a go! I eventually decided on the gardein Thai Salad. It originally came with egg noodles, which I subbed for romaine lettuce. Our waitress forewarned me that the salad wouldn’t be very filling without the egg noodles but I decided to move forward with the game plan.
Um, good thing I did. The salad turned out to be two times the size of my face! There was a ton of romaine and shredded cabbage, broccoli, and carrots. To be honest, the gardein strips really freaked me out because they looked so much like chicken. Seeing the below picture actually makes me shudder a little bit. In the interest of time (we were a tad behind schedule), I ate the salad and it turned out to be really tasty. The accompanied spicy peanut dressing definitely made everything stand out!
Naturally, complete demolition occurred.
The two of us made room for dessert and walked over to JP Licks for an ice cream. I got an unpictured 2-scoop of dairy-free chocolate coconut, made from hemp milk. It was divine! I can’t begin to describe how elated I am over the fact that JP Licks has such a variety of vegan ice creams, and they’re all amazing!
Earlier in the day, before Matty and I left for the concert, we laid on the floor and propped our feet up
and made really attractive faces.
Sometimes, doing nothing is the most fun, you know?
Okay, I’m off to job number two for the evening. Have a good one!
