Part Two of Miss Smart’s Southern Midwest Road Trip concluded with a stopover in the greater Nashville area, where I may not have stumbled upon Raina James or Juliette Barnes at the annual charity polo match–
*As distinguished from Veggie Heather.
After catching up (and completely forgetting that despite our fairly frequent e-mails and texts, I’d never actually met Melissa in person before) we headed out for a new-to-me experience: Ethiopian food!
I chose not to eat more than a smidge of sauce from the meat sampler , but
I we attacked the veggie sampler with a determination (and newfound love for injera) perhaps never before witnessed* by the waitress.
[She probably also never encountered patrons who chose their table for its location directly under the light.]
I mean…how could I resist?
I must admit, the behind-the-scenes of the Broccoli blog was pretty phenomenal to witness.
And while Heather certainly has a way with plating, the overdose of lentils from the night before (and the days in Louisville) did what they do to my tummy, and I had to take my Peachy Macaroon Pancakes to go–
–and make a stop for a blood orange (!) kombucha at Whole Foods.
The only appropriate thing to do was cover them in Tennessee-made FROG Jam and a farm egg. Right?
