I went out for falafel last night with some friends, which meant I had no leftovers to pack for lunch today. I was running late this morning, so instead of being inventive I threw together a peanut butter sandwich.
But my boss took me out to lunch today! We went to a thai place called the Brown Sugar Cafe, where our waitress was really helpful in regards to figuring out what menu items were vegan. (I had spring rolls and a thai basil stir fry, in case you're wondering, with the best tea EVER... it was orange in color, but I have no idea what it was.)
I finished work STARVING and with no idea what to make for supper. UNTIL I remember my poor dejected sandwich. I stopped at Whole Foods for some fruit - just fruit, I told myself, and ended up splurging on the long-coveted temptation strawberry soy ice cream. I mean, it has fruit in it, right?
Got home and threw together:
Grown-Up PB&J with Red Fruit Salad
DELICIOUS... I couldn't stop myself from taking a bite out of the sandwich before I took a picture ^_^; I'm not going to post a recipe, because all I did was grill the sandwich and add more peanut butter... and strawberries! The fruit salad is pomegranates, strawberries, and banana, with a dollop of strawberry soy yogurt on top.
I definitely prefer to eat pomegranate straight from the fruit, rather than have to pull all the seeds out myself. So much work!
As if that wasn't enough sugar, I wanted to try that ice cream. I have to admit, I was pretty disappointed. When I tried it, I tasted more Peach than Strawberry. At first I thought my tastebuds were screwy, but then I read the ingredients... natural peach flavors. gah... I don't really like peach-flavored things. So this flavor was not a big hit. (The Cookie Dough one is really good, though.)
I melted some dark chocolate and soymilk together to make a quick fudge sauce, which made all my problems go away:
It started to melt into the sauce, so I had to eat it quickly!
tomorrow my mother's coming to visit me, and she doesn't really like sweet things, so I'll be healthier then.
