Tonight is the big blog dinner at Candle 79 (a famous vegan restaurant here in NYC). I'm really looking forward to it! I promise to post pictures from it, so check back later tonight! Also, Peanut's sister still needs a home or she will have to be brought to a shelter, because the owner can't keep her. So again, if anyone in the NY area wants an orange kitten, please contact me!!
I had 2 slices of Trader Joe's amazing french toast, topped with their own maple syrup, dollops of real whipped cream, and some berries alongside. I also had a glass of orange juice with it.
I had an Amy's Spinach Pizza in a Pocket Sandwich with a Mott's Peach Medley apple sauce (and yes, Peanut had some-- it's his favorite!).
After lunch I had my cherry Dum-Dum lollipop that I got at the bank yesterday...
Later I made a yogurt parfait out of a Fage Total 0% yogurt, berries, TJ's granola with almonds, and a drizzle of maple syrup to top it off!
Peanut finishing off his tuna...
I had a good time meeting my fellow bloggers at Candle 79! I've only been there a couple of times, and both of those times it has been for brunch, so I never tried anything off their lunch or dinner menu...
I got the hand cut pasta... it came with veggies in a cashew cream sauce.
The hand made pasta was good, but I thought the sauce was too spicy or overly seasoned somehow. The portion was also really small for $18. I didn't finish this dish and I'd really only recommend Candle 79 for brunch. I wasn't wild about the dinner, but I did enjoy the company! I didn't take many pics because the lighting was pretty dark. I'm sure that the other girls (and one guy!) got better pictures though with their fancy, flash cameras! lol
I was really quite hungry afterwards, so on my way home I stopped in a Baskin Robbins and got a chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream cone!
I also had a Naked Juice later when I got home. (Note Peanut in the background! :)
I really enjoyed meeting everyone, especially VeggieGirl, since I've been talking to her online for a while now. I was glad to hear her parent's are fans of Peanut! lol Speaking of which, here's a pic I took of my little buddy tonight...
Still no word on who will adopt Peanut's sister, but I know people are trying to spread the word, and I really do appreciate it!
I will be posting more about this blog dinner and the bloggers I met at a later date, so check back!
