April 4, 2010 - .  

half a slice of multigrain toast with peanut butter

coffee from Cherrywood Coffeehouse

potluck brunch at Emily’s friend’s house: fruit salad that we brought (avocado, kiwi, strawberry, apple, tangerine, lemon juice); vegan cinnamon roll (recipe from don’t eat off the sidewalk); chocolate chip scone; zucchini frittata (with potatoes, tofu, etc); home fries; Simply orange juice. So many people brought vegan food, even though no one else was vegan! We brought the lamest vegan option by far. People in Austin are awesome.

on plane from Austin: salad with iceberg lettuce, shredded carrot, shredded cabbage, and no dressing; pretzels (from previous flight). On this flight, in addition to the salad (with optional cheese dressing), they were serving chicken sandwiches and Twix bars. It was listed as a “snack,” not a meal, which might be why they didn’t have any other options (vegetarian, kosher, vegan, etc) even though I signed up as vegan when buying the ticket. However, someone who flew a few days before said they announced that Continental might be stopping all “special diet” options on flights (perhaps just international) starting April 1st. I need to find confirmation of this.

on commuter rail from Newark: vegan tres leches

on NYC subway: everything bagel

(travel rule: it is important to eat a different thing on every form of transportation that you take, particularly things that are sort of gross to observers, such as tres leches that has been thrown around in your suitcase all day)

dinner: Bedouin Tent leftovers (pita, hummus, baba ghanoush, stuffed grape leaves, kalamata olives, chickpea salad, lettuce)

a couple bites of Kim’s Magic Pop

chocolate cake with creamy peanut butter frosting and Mambas on top (thank you Michael!)
