“Are you nervous?” the Professor asked, over the dinner of veggie burgers and sweet potatoes I
forced encouraged him to eat last week.
“About if you like my veggie burgers?”
Ah, yes, Jenn and all you members of the What I Ate Wednesday ‘inner circle,’* the whole meet the parents weekend has past, and it was–of course–not without its delicious food moments.
In exchange for a small jar of Chocolate Cherry Chia Granola—I had to bring a food gift to the parental pair who self-reportedly ‘stalk’ my blog–I left Happy Hour at Black Warrior Brewery with a slice of (the Professor’s favorite) Mellow Mushroom Kosmic Karma pizza.
Much debate resulted in me placing an order, retracting an order, and convincing others to order everything I originally had intended to get. Luckily my hay-smoked (?) seared Viking sea scallops with smoked trout were delicious–even if only one-fourth of the turnips were roasted fully.
Lemon Ginger Creme Brulee (heavy on the lemon, lacking on the ginger) and Chocolate Espresso Mousse Cake w. beet foam and pistachio cream were quickly consumed. [I’m still not sure how I feel about the beets, but the pistachio cream and chocolate crumble were perfect!]
Clearly you can’t have Easter without chocolate.
Well, and Jesus.
But also chocolate.
This time there was trivia, and a free small pizza coupon involved, which meant I finally achieved my plan
for world domination of covertly ordering the pizza with tofu on it. Mega Veggie….mega delicious.
