Lunch at Cumberland Brews

This past Saturday, we had our monthly community meeting for the Louisville Vegetarian Club at a local joint, Cumberland Brews.

We had a really great discussion about how to eat “vegan on the cheap” and also how to apply that to other things we consume besides what we eat (clothing, beauty products, cars, etc). I learned a lot and it was great to hear where other people are coming from. Refreshing.

We also got to eat some really tasty food!

On the recommendation of my friend Karen, I ordered the veggie burger (which is a falafel patty!) with no cheese and some fries. The lighting was not the best but here’s a small glimpse.

CbIt came on a bun with lettuce, tomato, red onion and a mushroom, plus some guacamole I happily smothered on top. Would you believe I ate everything on that plate. It got messy, but it was so good.

Once again, I am very thankful for the LVC. If it weren’t for our meeting here, I would maybe never have known how delicious the food is (I’m not much of a beer drinker). I will definitely be going back again someday!

Snow Day 2010

When I woke up at 5:30 this morning, I found out that I didn’t have to work today!

It started snowing last night into today and I think we’ve gotten somewhere around 6 inches of snow.

Suzie and I have had fun today!

013

Instead of going back to sleep, I enjoyed some leftover pancakes and coffee!

Since I had the day off from my full-time gig, I got to work on my home duties that had gotten neglected over the busy weekend!

I literally cleaned my entire apartment, did laundry and dishes. Now I’m really hoping I get to go back to work tomorrow or else I won’t have anything to do 😉

I snacked on some nuts mid-morning and then took a break for lunch in the midst of my housework.

Veggie burger with hummus in a pita pocket, plus some cauliflower. And a tangerine!

Of course, I had some more tea this afternoon 🙂

020

Loved this one!

All my cleaning worked up an appetite. I had this later in the afternoon.

For dinner, I started off with a spinach salad with balsamic vinaigrette.

022

Then I made some rice & beans (pinto) sprinkled with hot sauce.

023

And even more tea, if you can believe it. I’m obsessed!

024

Jasmine is definitely a favorite. I think I like the other Jasmine tea I had before better than this one, but this is still really good!

I also tried a new product for a snack tonight.

021

First, the Silk Almond milk is delicious. I’m glad I got the original because it’s just 60 calories per cup and its creamy and sweet (I used it in my green monster yesterday).

My mom has been raving about these Chocolate Cheerios forever, so when I finally saw them, I had to try them out.

025

These taste just like Cocoa Puffs. I mean that in a good way. I’m going to have to be careful with these 😉

What’s the best new product you’ve tried lately?
