(Vegetarian Food Photo) Housekeeping!

Did anyone else laugh hysterically at that “housekeeping” scene in Tommy Boy?

[Richard knocks on the door impersonating the maid while Tommy tries to sleep]
Richard Hayden: Housekeeping. You want mint for pillow?
Tommy: Please go away let me sleep, *for the love of God.*

The rest of the joke is not appropriate for this blog. But you can find it on IMDB.

I am doing some photo housekeeping, so I’m going to share a whole mess of meals that I’ve eaten and wanted to share, but haven’t found the right post yet.

First up is a vegetarian┬árice bowl from The Pump Energy Food. It was a base of rice, topped with tofu, sauteed mushrooms, sauteed summer squash, cheddar, and sweet potatoes. It was great! Very filling. Pump is right by my office so this should be a regular in my lunch rotation (it’s not, but only because I bring my lunch most days and Subway’s $5 foot-longs are my other go-to lunch option).

The next few dishes are all from Peacefood Cafe on the upper west side. Bobby and I have been here a few times and we always enjoy it. This time (gosh, I think it was over a month ago) was for a late lunch (almost dinnertime).

I got the roasted vegetable dish. You get to pick 4 veggies, so I got kabocha (duh), cauliflower, summer squash, and Brussels sprouts. I spray it with Bragg’s liquid aminos. Peacefood is generous with their oil for roasting, but it makes the dish even better. Topped with sprouts.

Bobby got a kabocha sandwich with jicama sticks on the side.

And we shared this vegan potato salad.

All lip-smackingly palatable. I want to go back again soon to both Peacefood and Pump!

My week is absolutely insane, so don’t expect anything very contemplative or thought-provoking from me over the next few days. My musings ebb and flow, and it’s definitely an ebbing week ­čÖé

Are you always inspired, or do you have to wait for the right moment to say/write/do something that you think is meaningful?
