Where did the weekend go? It can’t be over yet, I still have tons of laundry to do! *sigh* Oh well, looking forward to a productive week that includes a trip to Apple Hill, finally getting the food processor I want, trying and modifying more recipes from Jennifer Cornbleet and trying to figure out what to do with this squash my mom picked up for me this weekend.
While at Costco, I got this 2 lb. container of medjool dates for $7.99, which will get a container about half this size at Whole Foods. The flavor and texture seems on pair with the more expensive ones, but this seems to be a seasonal product at Costco, like the Vita-Mix special.
I had another family birthday gathering this weekend at Lucille’s BBQ, a popular southern BBQ chain in the area. I was pretty apprehensive about this considering their menu is not vegan friendly, it’s rare that any of these dishes have only one type of meat! There were no vegan options, all the salads had meat and cheese. There were two vegetarian burger options, both with cheese. I ended up getting the Blackened Shrimp Salad with dressing on the side and skipping the cheese, but I was surprised that all the salads had meat. Overall, not a vegan friendly restaurant. Great ribs I guess, tons of people ordering them.
