WIAW, A Vegetarian and a Birthday...

This WIAW is going to be a little random, so just stay with me.

Today, which when you actually read this will be tomorrow, is (or was) my friend Rochelle's birthday.

This picture was taken this morning, or yesterday morning, after out six mile chilly birthday run. How awesome is it to have friends that get up bright and early to celebrate birthdays? Pretty awesome, in my opinion.

Anyway, this is supposed to be about food, right? There was food on Saturday night when we went to Louis to celebrate Ro's birthday.

The best thing about Louis is their super skinny French fries and their black bean burgers. When my black bean theta burger came, imagine my surprise when I took a big bite and realized that it was a regular hamburger instead of the vegetarian variety.

I have been a vegetarian for two and a half years. I didn't eat much red meat for quite a while before I gave up meat. While I have had fish and shellfish on occasion I have not had a real hamburger in a very long time.

It kinda grossed me out. Rochelle decided to tell our poor waitress that I had been a vegetarian for ten years. The look on her face was priceless. I did end up getting a free black bean veggie burger out of the deal.

We had a great night. There was food, some shots and a police officer. He was definitely not a stripper.

After Louis we headed to The Garage. We hung out, there was some tequila and more pictures.

So, since this is supposed to be about what I ate, how about this...

Dinner tonight was leftover sweet potato and black bean chilli, since it was leftover I had it for dinner on Monday night too.

Tis was dinner one night last week. Fake chicken nuggets, sweet potato fries, roasted broccoli and steamed Brussels sprouts. Yummy.

I found a way to make my homemade chocolate chip cookies even better. I added a little Nutella, this was even better than the animal crackers dipped in Nutella we ate in Colorado when we were there for the Ragnar Relay. It took a lot to keep me from turning this into a chocolate chip Nutella sandwich.

Gotta go, there are cookies in the kitchen calling my name.


  1. Oh no, you poor thing! I couldn't even imagine what your facial expression may of looked like! Glad they gave you your meal for free. Bless your heart.

    1. It was pretty funny. An honest mistake, but it sure didn't taste good!

  2. Yes. Nut butter takes everything to the next level! :)

    Those sweet potato fries look so good. I've been meaning to make some butternut squash fries... I need to get right on that!
