I finally made it to the....End of the Line

Monday, July 21, 2008

Well, we finally made it over to Pensacola yesterday for lunch at End of the Line cafe. Sean & I drove over & met our friends, Fred & Cynthia, for a late lunch. Cynthia is pregnant & looks adorable! The cafe itself would be better described as a "dive", but the food was great! I have been working a lot lately cooking for other people; it was nice to be waited on & cooked for, even better that it was all completely vegan! On Sundays they have a set menu. Yesterday our meal started with a bowl of corn & potato chowder; this was favorite dish of all.

Then we were brought a plate full of food. There was a bowl of "cheddar cheese" grits topped with red peppers, tempeh bacon & green onions. These didn't really taste very cheddar-y to me, but I suppose cheese made with cashews might not taste exactly like cheese as I know it! There was TVP sausage on a biscuit with white gravy (I must say their TVP sausage did taste much better than my TVP meatlessloaf I made a couple of months ago!), mole beans, a salad with a basil-honey vinaigrette & a wedge of watermelon. Of this, the salad was my favorite. I wish the "main course" would have been tofu; we have been eating a lot of beans at our house lately!

After I was completely stuffed, I managed to polish off a piece of carrot cake with cream & topped with dried cranberries! I was so full! We thoroughly enjoyed our meal & will be making the drive over as often as we can to enjoy this treat. It's a great bargain, as well!

After lunch Sean & I stopped by a co-op natural food store, Everman. I could have bought lots, but I restrained myself & just bought some much needed laundry soap & some vegetable base powder. Then we decided to stop by the flea market on the way home. Flea markets aren't what they used to be. People don't sell their junk anymore, they sell new junk; stuff that you would find at the Dollar Tree. I want your old junk, not "Made in China" new junk. It was close to closing & extremely hot & a lot of vendors were packing up. We didn't find anything we couldn't live without. However, we did see an interesting set-up & had to take a picture. Have you ever see so many VHS tapes in all your life? Much less all in one place?

I haven't been cooking quite as much here at my own house lately since I have been cooking for other people. But if Cinderella gets all her chores done today, she might just have a trick up her sleeve for dinner tonight! But first, I am off to clean the house & hopefully either the boys or the yard after that!
