Alas, I return from vacation with no pictures of food. Why you wonder? Because I did not get the opportunity to eat fabulous vegan food. Instead I ate a lot of potatoes, drank a lot of pear ale and walked my feet darn near off.
Some stand out nibbles were the Fried Mushrooms (on a stick) at the Texas Renaissance faire and the Spicy Korean Tofu & Veggies from Pei Wei. The things that sucked royally? The Kings Feast at the faire was great amusement but crappy food for a vegan. I ate grapes, a few marinated veggies, a quarter of a head of iceberg lettuce and roasted potatoes. So not worth the price of admission for me. And the second sucky place? Hooters. We went there, I took a look at the menu, had only water to drink and got up to leave before everyone else's food arrived. I drove over to Pei Wei for said awesome Spicy Korean dish.
Foolishly I did not bring sandwiches on the plane with me, so I was pretty hungry through that, though I did have some nibbles like grapes and pretzels. The flight home was worse because we had to run to make our connection. Ok, so I just walked as quick as possible and relied on LB to tell the gate attendants I was on my way. Even that made my knee hurt fiercely. Sometimes I wonder about my choice to not let the orthopedic specialist remove the screws he put in my tibia to realign my knee because they hurt!
Other than that, no other food stands out. I know you can eat vegan fare in Texas, I just did not have much opportunity to do so. Its hard when you are moving in a group with three omnivores. Though my friend M got her own mushrooms on a stick and loved them!
Hopefully there will be posts tomorrow with pictures of food. I hope to make mini cupcakes for the trick or treaters coming to the office tomorrow. And possibly peanut butter cannon balls if I have time!
