Happy Saturday, everyone 🙂
Look at these:
Aren’t they lovely? They hit my doorstep at 8:30am yesterday morning and were most romantic. It’s almost like HTB wanted me to eat my v-day-bashing words, huh? He also called a little while later and told me to be “ready to go” at 5:30pm, because we’ve got somewhere to go. I LOVE THAT.
He picked me up, quite punctually, and we headed into Boston to the Comedy Connection! To see Pauly Shore. Now, I have to admit…. I was never a huge Pauly Shore fan. I vaguely remember him in Biodome. My first reaction when I found out who was on was: he’s still around? Well, folks, he is, and he’s weirder than ever, just older. One of his opening acts was actually very funny, but I forget his name! Oh well. I’m still not a big Pauly Shore fan — he lost me when he started making fun of President Obama, using too many racial slurs and “black” accents… It was gross, honestly. I mean, have your own political opinions, but have a little respect for the man who is currently leading your country, you know? That turned me way off. As did the fact that most of the audience was right there with him, and actually booed the President. Way immature and disrespectful. We still had a great time though.
Then we hit a lovely restaurant: Avila, and had a delicious dinner. HTB did good. I enjoyed a perfectly pink champagne cocktail:
So, on with the eats! I have a quicky little recipe that is rockin’ my socks off currently. It’s basically a twist on the tortilla pizza, and can definitely be done with a tortilla, except I love how the lavash gets so crispy.
Generous sprinkle of Nutritional Yeast
2 tbsp (or more, if you like it saucy) “Hide the Lentils” Tomato sauce (Eat Drink & be Vegan) or any other tomato sauce that you like!
1/2 cup baby spinach
1 tsp olive oil
salt & pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 400. On a cookie/baking sheet, place lavash and top with tomato sauce, nutritional yeast, spinach, and drizzle with olive oil. Place in oven for about 3 minutes. Then switch to broil and cook for another 3-4 minutes, until spinach is wilty and the edges of the lavash are crisp. Sprinkle with S&P and enjoy!
Or, you can top it off with a crumbled Masala Burger!!!
Yes, it was purely delicious. I have been loving the lavash, and not just because it’s fun to say. I also made a naughty AB chocolate pizza…
That did my heart good. It is V-day weekend after all, as HTB keeps remind me (who is that guy anyway!?).
So, tonight we’re heading up to Lexington for a friend’s party, and HTB is making his famous wings and I’ve yet to decide what I’m bringing. I’ll figure it out. As a side note, I’m an idiot easily stressed, and apparently threw away all of my blades for the gosh darn spiraler. I now have like, 6 tons of zukes and a barrel of Daikon radishes that looked … spiral-able? So. Does anyone have any good DAIKON RADISH ideas? Oy.
Well, sorry for the novel, but I had to make up for my lack of posting yesterday! I was in major lurker mode, not sure why. I hope you all have a wonderous Saturday and a Sweet Azz V-day tomorrow. Wanna know what’s on our agenda?
- Lunch at Grezzo, a raw vegan restaurant (SCORE FOR ME WOOT WOOT)
- Afternoon at the aquarium
- Dinner somewhere of HTB’s choosing
- Perhaps a screening of Valentine’s Day
- Sweet lurve. YEAH, I said it.
