VeganGypsy Says: I like the slightly sweet flavor from the cinnamon but would prefer more smoke. Perhaps smoked paprika next time? The different types of beans made it seem more like a bean stew than a chili. A nice change but I think I'll stick to my tried & true chili recipe.
OmniHunny says: Yum. (talkative chap he is, eh?)
This made so much food, I'll definitely need to freeze for future meals. I think this would be good over a baked potato or rice.
Saturday morning I got up early and
Yesterday we ate out twice, pretty unusual for us but we were busy with household projects & errands and neither of us felt like cooking. Lunch was at Buffalo Wild Wings. Chip has been wanting to try this place and I figured worst case scenario I could have a salad. I was pleasantly to find a couple of veg-friendly menu options. The best choice was the black bean burger which, according to the website, does contain dairy. This was one of those occasions where I decided to do my best, allowing the tiny trace of non-vegan content.
I chose raw veggies (no dip) as my side, removed the bun and just ate the burger on a bed of lettuce, onions and pico de gallo. It was delicious! I left there feeling satisfied but not stuffed, didn't miss the bun or fatty fries at all.
Dinner was at our favorite local restaurant/bar, Grind GastroPub & Tiki Bar. I had the veggie pizza, no cheese, which is always wonderful. It was too dark to snap a picture, but you can see it here.
Today we'll be laying low, finishing up some house chores and as for dinner...I have no freaking clue! I have ingredients to make several of the meals from my menu plan, or maybe I'll be lazy and just eat leftovers.
Hope you're having a wonderful weekend!
