Today’s lunch was my first venture into store-bought vegan pizza. It was on sale at Whole Foods for 6 bucks which is still high for frozen pizza, but I had to try it. And it’s usually 10 bucks! Tofurkey brand and it had lots of veggies and sausage. If I were permanently going vegan I might get it again for a quick and lazy fix, but I wasn’t blown away. The Daiya cheese really did melt well and the consistency of everything was fine, but it kinda just tasted like a cheap frozen pizza, kinda Red Baron-y.
Dinner: Woohoo! My boyfriend got a teaching job today! After 5 years of substitute teaching! We celebrate at Than Thao on Hawthorne and order our very favorite: Vegetarian Than Thao Delight. Tons of veggies and tofu in a spicy red curry sauce. TT is cool because it’s got Vietnamese chefs cooking Thai food so it’s this neat hybrid. Our Delight dish is not like a traditional Thai red curry (which I also love), it’s a little less creamy and has this smoky, almost Hawaiian touch.
