Brave and Toasty

What a fun day!  It was great to catch up with my friend – she lives right in Williamsburg so it’s a little sad I’m so busy I don’t see her more.  That is going to be one my goals this year, getting out and about more.

Before I left for dinner (my subway trip was about 45minutes) I decided to have a small snack – nonfat plain Choibani with fresh blueberries and some unsweetened coconut.

Blueberries were on sale at the grocery store and these were delicious!  I bought a package just to save for later.

I loved getting to see Williamsburg, it’s one of the Brooklyn places I haven’t gotten to explore that much.  We stopped in at the bar where my friend works to get a drink.  It was nice and cozy; they sell coffee during the day and have a shelf full of board games.  A and I might head over there to do our schoolwork some weekend soon.

I drank a seasonal beer (can’t remember the name) that rocked my socks – it tasted just like Christmas!  Here’s a picture of Lana and I at the bar.

Next we headed over to Wild Ginger, a vegan restaurant.  I ordered fresh coconut water to drink.

How much fun is that?

My meal came with a green salad with ginger dressing to start.

And I got the General Tso’s soy protein as my entree.

This was really good.  I’m not sure what the protein was, but the taste and texture reminded me of seitan.  It was great to catch up with my friend; especially over such yummy eats.

A leaves tomorrow for an interview so I headed home pretty early to get in some quality time.  He insisted we stop for snacks on the way home so I am currently munching on a Bueno bar.

We are watching The Brave Little Toaster and getting our cuddle on.  Hope everyone has a great night!

    Thanks for visiting my blog! There’s another Wild Ginger in Manhattan (not sure if it’s related to the Brooklyn one). It’s a smaller restaurant, but the food is pretty good.
