My sister came to visit me this weekend. She arrived on Sunday and she left this morning. She came by because she hadn’t seen our home since we did renovations and also she is leaving in one short week for a 6-month internship at a wolf sanctuary out in Colorado. I’m not sure if I’ll have a chance to visit her out there so we wanted to see each other now while we can.
I had to work yesterday, but after work we all convened downtown (me, Julia, and Bobby) near Bobby’s office to get something for dinner. Bobby suggested Souen, and who am I to disagree! Julia also enjoys Souen though she says it’s a little bland sometimes
So let’s see, what did we get…
Julia ordered the cornbread with a side of miso-tahini spread. (But we all shared it.)
This is an old picture of mine of the cornbread but it still looks the same. The dip though is more paste-y now instead of runny. I like it either way.
I got Squash Tofu – my absolute favorite dish at Souen. My other favorite is the macro plate, but I was in a more squash tofu-y mood last night. Squash Tofu is a sauteed mix of fresh vegetables – broccoli, napa cabbage, onions, soft/medium tofu, carrots, kabocha squash (oh how I’ve missed it – haven’t had it in a while), and probably more that I am forgetting. The sauce is of the miso/tahini variety (a common theme at Souen).

Julia opted for the Inspired Vegetable Curry – a delicious mix of broccoli, carrots, squash (kabocha), cauliflower, mushrooms, and more + a savory Indian spice-inspired sauce.

And last but certainly not least, Bobby got Souen’s Stir-Fried Noodles with soba noodles as his entree. Tons of veggies including lotus root and snap peas, topped with some seaweed flakes. It’s in a mushroomy-gingery sauce.

After dinner I of course had to get a macrobiotic scone, which I savored slowly back at our apartment. Forgot to snap a pic. (Btw – I also have a recipe for macrobiotic scones that I have been meaning to resurrect – it’s from 2009. And I found this Eden Foods recipe for Cranberry Walnut macro scones too. Sounds yum.)
That’s all for now – must focus on work today because I want to leave in time to hit up this oh-so-exciting R & SciDB meetup!!! (Yep, I’m a nerd. Did I mention I was a math major?)
