Day 15, pt. 2: Out to lunch
After snacking on some peanuts this morning…
…I got to have lunch with my Aunt! I haven’t been out to lunch during the work week in forever. I’ve made such a habit of bringing my lunch everyday, which is good because it keeps me healthy and saves a lot of money too. But it was a nice treat on this Friday Eve.
We went to J. Gumbo’s which has a few vegetarian options. I’m not 100% sure they are vegan though…guess I should’ve asked?
I ordered the Garden Creole because they were out of White Chili. That’s okay, I’ve had a lot of beans the past few days anyway, ha ha 😉
This dish contains: Cajun tomato sauce made with a golden roux, bell peppers and a splash of white wine. As I copied that, I didn’t know what “roux” was, so I Googled it.
I totally avoided the Bumblebee Stew because it described it as having a “creamy sweet and spicy butter” sauce and went with what may have had butter instead. Hmm…well, I did want the White Chili anyway, so it’s not entirely my fault 😉
I am deeming this Vegan Fail #3. Three occurrences out of 15 days isn’t too bad, right? If I’m really counting, #1 would be the ranch dressing I ate at a party and #2 would be that stupid soup mix I bought last week. I should’ve included this in my post from earlier today but I have to say, eating at restaurants is the hardest part of being trying to be a vegan!
I also need some new snack ideas!
I unwrapped this not too long ago and it just wasn’t that exciting. I tried to pretend it was something special by wrapping it in wax paper (ha, really just out of plastic and trying to use stuff up)!
Half a peanut butter sandwich it is.
If you have any good vegan snack ideas that aren’t candy or granola bars, please leave them in the comments 🙂
On a positive note, I got to leave ANOTHER Operation Beautiful note today in the J. Gumbo’s one-seater ladies bathroom!
Looking forward to a short run + weight training after work and then a relaxing night at home with the doggie while Josh is at a concert. I might have to bake something 🙂
What are you doing tonight?
