What I Ate Wednesday

I'm writing this on Tuesday night, having just this evening consumed an all-you-can-eat sushi dinner. My son is away on a school trip for the night and my daughter is at dance classes, so the husband and I decided to visit a fave sushi restaurant. And gorge ourselves to the gills. And then we went to Costco. Where I found it difficult to even look at food, nevermind buy it. But we still managed to spend beaucoup de dollars. Costco is magical that way.

Needless to say, I'm having trouble looking at these food pics, especially the sushi ones that follow. But I will endure. This morning I made some delicious blueberry pancakes using a recipe from Chloe's Kitchen. I love pancakes, but don't want to discuss them for the moment.

I was craving hot chocolate at breakfast another day (naughty girl), so I heated up some soy beverage and added Purest powdered dark chocolate mix. I bought this product at the health food store - it's delicious and free of dairy.

I bought cucumber maki sushi for my daughter's lunch one day. Usually I divide a package between her and my son, but he didn't need lunch that day, so the leftover sushi became my lunch.

I made the tequila tempeh fettuccine recipe (using brown rice spaghetti) from Chloe's Vegan Italian Kitchen for dinner one night. I've made it before and found it really tasty. This time we didn't have tequila, so I used vodka (whatever, right?). I also used frozen pepper slices instead of fresh. This lovely recipe did not disappoint, even with substitutions.

Oh, and we had some boring mixed greens on the side. Just to be virtuous-like. They are pictured plain, but we had an olive oil vinaigrette.

Here are the beginnings of that all-you-can-eat sushi dinner. Fellow vegetarians, I need your feedback. Do you feel that it's a waste to pay the higher price for all-you-can-eat sushi at dinner? Is it just us? We debated back and forth about whether to go, because it's like 10 bucks more for each person at dinner, but there are only about three more vegetarian offerings. There's all these fancy fishy dishes though. No help to us. But greed prevailed.

I only had my phone and I didn't take too many pictures. (I was busy stuffing my face.) We enjoyed this teriyaki tofu (which was one of the dinnertime additions).

Have you been out to dinner recently? What type of cuisine do you enjoy most?
