What Vegans Eat – Day 1081, Travel Edition


Breakfast: On our late night theater schedule we sometimes skip breakfast or have it at lunchtime. Since we were meeting our friend Wilbur for lunch, we just had Teeccino.
Lunch: Wilbur was our fiddler in last year’s production of Fiddler on the Roof and he is also subbing for us in the band on a few nights when our string player can’t be there. We’ve been wanting to have lunch and relaxed conversation for about a year and today was the day. I picked True Food Kitchen in Palo Alto since it was close to Foothill College where Wilbur teaches math. Gary and I started with Green Juices made with Kale, Ginger, Apple, Celery and Cucumber. I requested mine without apple and a few minutes later asked the server if I could have mine without ice. I remembered from the last time they served their pressed juices over ice. When the juices arrived, they both came with ice. Oh well. I let it warm up a little before drinking. We got the Charred Cauliflower again with Harissa Tahini, Medjool Dates, Dill, Mint, and Pistachio. I must remember to make this at home!

I had the Teriyaki Quinoa with Broccoli, Heirloom Carrots, Bok Choy, Mushrooms, Brown Rice, Avocado, and Toasted Sesame.

Gary went with the dish I had last time, the Ancient Grains and Miso Glazed Sweet Potatoes, Turmeric, Charred Onion, Snow Peas, Grilled Portobello, Avocado, Hemp Seeds. He gave me his mushrooms.

The conversation continued over tea. Mine was Chai.

Dinner: We had an exhausting rehearsal. We don’t have a lot of time before we open and everything needs to be staged and choreographed so that we can run the show a few times and smooth out the trouble spots. The tension is mounting. We were hungry of course afterwards and discovered that Khanh’s is open until 10pm. We were the last customers there. The owner/server Ann was there since they opened at 11am, with the same warm smile. She knows our order by heart. Do you?
