Addicted to Results 4/19 Date Night
As usual, the morning started with a smoothie. It is not the most photogenic color, but it did it's job. This was a blend of soymilk, cranberries, pumpkin puree, frozen spinach, carob powder, spirulina and agave syrup.
Lunch was a mix of leftovers. The seitan mushroom mix was served over mashed sweet potatoes. I added some kalamata olives and a sprinkling of nutritional yeast.
For dinner, we went to Orza in Little Italy. This is a Persian restaurant. At the start of the meal, they provide some hummus, tomatoes and pita to split.
I had the Veggie Ghormeh Sabzi Stew which is made with red beans, green herbs and mushrooms. You have a choice of 4 types of rice. I picked a basmati with sour cherries. The cherries gave a great taste to the stew. Photo was a little blurry.
I tried a dessert which was presented as a lemon sorbet with cherry compote. It was not at all what I expected. The sorbet was basically frozen grated lemon peel with a little bit of cherry juice. That was not good and I did not finish it. Everything else was fantastic.
After dinner we went to Landmark Theater for a movie - Raid 2. The nice thing about Landmark is that it has a bar. I had a Transcendence which was a gin and tonic with blueberries. The bartender is great and has a good knowledge of foreign films.
After the movie we stopped by Talara for a night cap. I had the sangria pictured at the top and we split a order of black bean hummus and guacamole.
