As many of you know by now, my husband is not big on the vegan food. (Or, as he calls it, "weird food.") However, we had a date night on Friday and he surprised me by taking me to a new vegetarian restaurant called Treehugger's Cafe. (I know, they totally stole my name.) He proudly informed me that he "prepared" by eating a big lunch, just in case they didn't have anything he would like.
Lo and behold, they did have chicken on the menu. In fact, I think they had more options for an omnivore than a vegan. Almost everything had cheese or some other sort of dairy in it, but our server was great and was able to modify my sandwich to make it vegan. I had a portabella mushroom sandwich on tasty whole wheat artisan bread and vegan coleslaw that was surprisingly super yummy.
My dinner, picture taken with my cell phone:
My husband had a chicken sandwich of some sort and fresh-cut french fries (which I had a few of and they were delicious). I also got a smoothie, which I was not happy with. Every smoothie on the menu had dairy yogurt in it, so they modified it for me, but it was completely watered down and from what I could tell by the giant chunks of ice in my smoothie, they really need to look into getting a new blender. Plus, it was $5. Five bucks for a watery smoothie? Live and learn, I guess. (Another area restaurant charges $6 for a Tofutti milkshake--however, their dairy milkshakes are about the same price.)
Today marks the anniversary of our first date--eight years ago! Aww.
