No Never!!!!

OK that was a corny title. Oh well, you can’t say I didn’t try. Plus it rhymes…that alone makes it magical.

Let’s face it, burritos can be a boon to vegetarians and vegans … much like the “wrap” has made life so much easier for lots of people. This, however has never been a huge surprise to me. I grew up around Latin cultured people. A “wrap” was “tortilla with (insert filling here) in it” that’s all… or someone would say, “can I have a cheese tortilla?” and this means you heat a tortilla on a gas flame and dump some cheese in, fold it in thirds and whala..a wrap/portable quesadilla/tortilla y queso.  So I have found all this “spinning” of a simple way of eating annoying.

And before I get off my soapbox …. a burrito, imho, is a tortilla with beans and rice and that’s all. Some condiments maybe and maybe sometimes a hunk of meat but I just don’t see making into this HUGE amazing new thing by chain restaurants.

Oh and don’t get me started on the chimichanga…

Why did I go on and on about all this? Just to tell you that there’s a review of the Green Pepper restaurant (a burrito joint if you will) on my PIG OUT page. Check it out!

…love that song.

Made some edits and additions to several of my boards. Check them out!

We’re still here in veganville haha. Plugging along, trying new recipes or at least gathering new ones to try 😀

I spend a lot of time looking for ideas on Pinterest. That site, like StumbleUpon, is deadly…a huge time sucker…so I usually only go there every so often.

DS is back and had a nice spring break. I miss him already. DD continues to work and play/practice her instruments and plan for college. All else is same/good…so long as distances are kept, it’s all good.

Ciao!

 …A CALZONE!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I mean just look at it!!  {This calzone was made by LaBorgata Pizzeria and Restaurant. Their cannolis are also AMAZING!}

I love, love, LOVE, calzones. The rich creamy goodness of the ricotta and the melty cheese….o.m.g.  I like them plain the best but in order to eat something that makes me feel like

 I’m eating something good for me, I usually get a spinach one.

Now when I first got this monstrosity I had never seen a calzone shaped like this. I have only ever seen the half-moon shape. This design is easier to cut and portion out but it looks like a snake haha.

One day when I went to pick up my order, the owner’s wife told me that it really doesn’t matter what size you order, he just makes it bigger anyway and goes a little nuts with it. Too funny. After she says this to me she rolls her eyes … I feel her pain…after all I’ve been with the same guy for over 31 years. I know her angst haha. They are  this older married couple, short, Italian, with white hair, both with glasses and are so very cute. He putzes around and does his thing and gets all excited when you come to get a calzone. Something I’ve witnessed in the past…he doesn’t get all excited when you come to get a pizza ~ too funny.

While this amazing piece of culinary delight is not vegan, it is vegetarian and therefore, okay to eat … I said so. It’s a rule.

Finally something close to New York style pizza in this town. YAY!

Have a wunderbar evening!

Vge Café

I stumbled across this new eatery on Facebook, particularly Jaime’s blog… Save the Kales!

I can’t wait to try it!  I haven’t yet told dd about this place yet as I’m not sure if it’s open yet or not. I will have to take a drive by the area and check it out!

We did eat at Retro Cafe at the Moravian Bookstore as promised on the “Pig Out” page. I will be posting a review soon!


In the meantime, check out the article on Vge Cafe!
