What Vegans Eat – Day 149


Breakfast: My mom always outdoes herself when she has guests. We were treated to an exquisite breakfast of Cooked Oatmeal with Bananas and Cinnamon, topped with Blueberries and Soy Milk. She is the queen of fresh fruit and always includes a luscious fruit platter. This one had Watermelon, Pineapple, Oranges.
Snack: We had rented a car to visit my parents and that meant big shopping before we returned the car. My mom gave me a $10 off coupon for Fairway Market. We like the Fairway stores and we checked out the one in Plainview on the way back to Forest Hills. We loaded up on our organic produce favorites (Kale, Celery, Carrots, Napa Cabbage, Plums, Onions, Romaine Lettuce) along with some other things, like South River Chickpea Miso which we love. Once home and the groceries were put away, we settled down to a little “Coffee And”. When we drive up to my brother’s home upstate with my parents we pass the town of Armonk. My mom often reminisces how as a child, her family would go to Armonk for what called “Coffee And”. We had our version of “Coffee And” here at home, on the breezy terrace with Iced Teeccino and Yellow Cake with Peanut Butter Filling and Chocolate Icing.
Dinner: It’s hot and humid and cloudy here in New York City. While it rained a little, we enjoyed dinner al fresco on the terrace where it’s cooler and just lovely. Gary made his own homemade Baked Beans and grilled Onions and Bell Peppers. I grilled the Field Roast Sausages and sliced some Tomatoes. Gary suggested rolling them up in lettuce leaves. Lettuce leaves make a crunchy, fresh alternative to bread rolls. I got to finish up the remaining Sangria from Independence Day.
