"Hemp-Seed Crusted Tofu with the Olive Oil and Thyme braised Fingerlings, Garlic Rapini with the Red Wine Sauce please". As for life, i think "i'll need a little while longer", i hope.
Self-Contstruced Dinner option from BLD....Just like my life. Where i have a choice of what protein i want, i have a choice of what major i want. Where i have a choice of what two sides i want, i have a choice of what other classes i i'm going to take. And where i have a choice of what sauce to cover it all, i have a choice of where i want to go. Well,it seems like it has finally hit me-i'm a senior, about to enter the "real life", and i still don't know what i'm going to do.
Fortunately, i have help, such as those who are responsible for this enchanting night(you have no idea you guys have helped me out, seriously). I only hope that whatever i end up doing, it makes me happy just like my dinner did. I'm no vegan, just conscious of stuff, that's all. And this dish will certainly break stereotypes that tofu has gotten. Three thick cutlets, with it's crispy crust of what would of probably ended up getting me high if i never left Garfield H.S.(Hemp=Bud), and it's soft, moist almost fish-like flesh. The starch, veggies and sauce were alright, but next time i'll try some of their other options.
And what way to make this night even better? Going somewhere else for dessert and actually keeping up with my new years resolution(read earlier posts). Urth Cafe to be more specific, somewhere that hasn't gotten written up that much yet. Cheering myself up with a big slice of their Chocolate Heaven Vegan Cake, to have the full effects of the comforting catechins (chocolate anti-oxidants proven to make you feel better) and rounding it out with a side of some fresh whipped cream to let me know that i'm not a hippy.
Like i said earlier, this is what i want to do in life, i just don't know how to get payed for doing it.
