Nota bene: While Lauren and I are not strictly vegan (she and her hubby went out for steaks this past Saturday), we rather fancy ourselves omnivorous bon vivants.
Confession: I was a vegetarian for six years during high school and as an undergraduate. I started eating meat again the summer I spent with another Lauren in another city.
We found seats at a table featuring a retired couple and a man with his mother-in-law.
The first course was waiting for us.
Second course was maybe my fav.
A mixed green salad followed. Then the fourth course / MAIN.
(This “steak” was comprised of lentils, tempeh, and potatoes.)
Coffee & dessert.
