Food Journal 11-8 and 9

I had a great day with my friends Corinn and Philip (he lived here until a couple months ago, but he's currently visiting for 6 days) on Saturday. It was actually quite nice out and the sun was shining most of the afternoon. I actually got to wear just a T-shirt (and jeans) when we sat outside the Gold Dust Meridian for a drink. Well, until the sun sneaked behind the building across the street...then it got cold and we went inside.

I slept in quite late on Saturday so my first meal was lunch.

Dr. Pepper
Coffee with soy and sugar
Ginger ale and Gin with lime
1/2 Meatball Sub and Brussels Sprouts from Bye & Bye
Nebraska- hot apple cider and apple cinnamon rum
Stockholm- lemon infused vodka with ginger ale
Pad Thai Woon Sen leftovers
By the way, all that alcohol was within an 8 hour period so i wasn't obliterated at the end of the day, if you were wondering. 

Then on Sunday..
Bite of bagel that may or may not be vegan. My roommate was trying not to starve to death (b/c of our friend philip's lack of speed to get ready for breakfast) and was eating one of her Kettleman's bagels that she buys in a mix bag. i took a bite and was like, that's a pizza bagel. that's probably not vegan...
Coffee with soy and sugar- $2.25 a cup at Junior's! yowza! that's almost as bad as Zell's! (i'm pissed at them b/c they charge $2 but 50cents more for soymilk.)
Vegan Potatoes from Junior's- i'm not sure why i get these since i'm not a fan of their potatoes. Ok, actually i do know why i get these, i'm a sucker for corn, mushrooms and their spicy tofu sauce. But, really, their potatoes kinda suck. And the only person that doesn't agree, that was in our party, is my roommate.
Homemade Tuno Casserole- i've had a frozen tube of Tuno (R.I.P.) for at least a year and i've been wanting to make a tuna casserole with it. My roommate and i topped ours with our respective hot sauces, her Aardvark and me Srirachi. It was comforting stuff. I added peas because what's any casserole without peas??
Southern Blend Greens (from Trader Joe's) with garlic and olive oil
Trader Joe's Soy Creamy Very Cherry Chip ice cream

dear karla,

first off, why are you linking to yelp reviews??

secondly, ew tuno.

thirdly, have you had the vegan pasta at golddust yet?


jess (of Get Sconed!) said...

I remember!

fourthly - was the potatoes plate with roasted or mushy style potatoes? I've had both there. I don't like how they throw fresh herbs on that dish, hahahaha, but I think that tofu sauce is fantastic...

K.E.N. said...

1. i'm linking b/c when i googled for what i was looking for it didn't come up with their official site.

2. it really isn't that bad.

3. nope, i've never eaten at Gold Dust. They ain't got shit on their Happy Hour menu for us. Except a salad....

4. i wouldn't say they were mushy or roasted. maybe in between with some dryness.
