Hi! I did have a blast last night. I did, I did. We were seated 15 feet from the raised platform of the stage. I said Corea was playing with his band, but meant to say with his ensemble of one bass player and a drummer. Corea is a virtuoso jazz pianist and both the bass player and drummer were also amazing. I loved it. Don't ask me about dinner or drinks - let's just say it was not McDougall. The club is on 6th avenue downtown.
I laughed to read, "Didn't see any spit." Yeah, ordering vegan takes willpower, creative thinking and spelling everything out. Also, sending things back on occasion when, even though you say no cheese, no eggs, etc. you still get one or the other. Like the restaurant we were in last night did not have a single thing on the menu that was vegan and I was too wimpish to ask for what I wanted.
Unusual beautiful weather here today. I got some bulbs planted and dug up a mallow lavetera (sp?) to plant somewhere else because it was overgrowing the planter. I'm starting to wonder if we'll get much of a winter here or any snow. It's been mild so far.
Got a lot of walking in yesterday, but gardening is about it for exercise today.
Blueberry waffles without butter or syrup for breakfast.
Potatoes and vegan field roast for lunch.
Small handful of walnuts for snack.
Rice and vegetables for dinner.
I haven't gotten the ingredients for your split pea soup yet, so will probably make that tomorrow.
Here's your recipe if you don't find it in your journal Anna (it's just a general one):
Bay leaf, Thyme, Basil
Liquid smoke (optional)
Cook in water. Do not use vegie broth as the split peas won't cook well.
