Again, Sunday got here way too fast. But it has been a fun and productive weekend after a busy work week. But first the weekday eats that included chickpea pasta with marinara and veggies, curry sweet potato saute, cauliflower stir fry, and a simple soy curl stir fry with tamari.
And another simple tempeh stir fry shared with my favorite lap buddy.
Last night we stepped out to see vegan comedian Preacher Lawson at The Crest in Sacramento. I have been enjoying his cooking videos for awhile on YouTube and had to check his show in Sacramento. He did this great interview with Plant Based News recently.
Before the show, we headed to Capitol Garage for dinner and this is the first time we’ve been which is strange because they’ve been participating in the Vegan Chef Challenge for years, not sure what took us so long! But the vegan options on the menu were great, a couple of solid main courses and fun selection of appetizers. And such a fun atmosphere with area for live entertainment.
We started with the Habanero Mango Tofu Wings which were nicely spicy, plenty of fiery kick! Then moved onto the Ginger Garlic Fried Rice and Veggie Burger.
The rice was nicely loaded with veggies, hearty, and lots of flavor. And the house made veggie burger was uniquely delicious with hearty bread slices for the bun, lots of greens, and a delicious house made veggie patty. And the flavorful fries were more like solid potato wedges – very delicious and we will be going back.
Then we headed to The Crest Theater for the show where I just love the retro glamour style.
Preacher and his vegan brother, Justin, who opened for him were hilarious – it was such a great show with so much energy and goofiness. He even did a great bit on being vegan and when he realized pigs are smarter than dogs and that cows do not always produce milk and what they go through.
Great show, so glad we went and made a great date night of it. Today was about chores and getting ready for the week. But we had some time to kill while waiting for maintenance to be completed on my car, so we stopped at Pushkin’s for lunch where everything is gluten and dairy free and about half of their menu is vegan. I started with an oat milk cappuccino and had the Kale Maitake Caesar Salad. It was a wonderful salad with kale, romaine, artichoke hearts, vegan egg, and vegan ricotta!
Hubby got the Adult Grilled Cheese Sandwich which was a kicky veggie sandwich with cheesy sauce, also delicious. And we shared vegan chocolate walnut cookies, such a great lunch and looking forward to getting back there soon.
I’m sad the weekend is over, but looking forward to a good week. And starting it with this great list:
