Alright Fangirls, last week I ate a lot. Probably too much (which is why my body is mad at me now) but it was totally worth it. I’m trying to get back into my less terrible eating habits now that we’re back in Maryland, but I keep thinking about that tasty California food.
We all know that I love food. I’ve been trying my best (not to the highest success) to get into meal planning, but sometimes you spend a day with friends and you finish it off with dinner. That happened last week when my friend Jamie and I went thrift shopping for some new(ish) clothes. We did our ridiculous amount of thrift shopping, went to the bank, and saw a place called the Iron Rooster next door. It resides in a very full strip mall (with wonderful things like Ulta and Target), tucked into the corner. All of their stuff says “all day” on it, and you want to know why? It’s because these guys know whats up, and they serve breakfast all day.
Alright Fangirls, this is a crazy delicious snack thats also very good for you. I found that it was a lot like a disassembled pizza; there is cheese, bread, and tomato, along with some oregano and an egg (which used to be put on pizzas)! But it’s delicious and healthy, and I can’t wait to eat it again.
Fangirls, I love Maryland. It’s my favorite place to visit for a multitude of reasons; my boy is there, my friends, great comic shops, and most of all, great food. My absolute favorite place to go while in Maryland is a restaurant called Golden West Cafe. Nestled in the far from sleepy Hampden, Golden West is the king of hipster hangouts. It’s a wonderfully warm restaurant, with all sorts of foods for every diet.
“It’s Just a wee sheep stomach!” Nope, not anymore. Hey Fangirls, this week we’ve got something that I’ve been excited to try since I first saw Brave; a vegetarian dish inspired by Haggis. Haggis is typically a dish made in sheep stomach, but for gals like me, that’s even more unappealing than to your average human. Being vegetarian means finding protein in places other than meat, but I know very few people who don’t experiment with food to find new ways to get their main courses other than frozen fake meat burgers. So I found a recipe online for Vegetarian Haggis, and went for it!
So okay, maybe Aquaman wouldn’t be eating his friends of the deep. Or maybe he just respects them enough to make them into super delicious and easy meals. It’s hard to tell. Either way, this dish is inspired by you, Aquaman. It’s said that Atlantis would be located somewhere in the Caribbean, so I whipped up a meal loosely inspired by a loosely real place for our dear underwater superhero.
