Yumminess from my favorite eating out place in Bend

Standard

Yumminess from my favorite eating out place in Bend. The picture doesn’t do it justice, but this dish was very sage-y and flavorful—both the tempeh and the squash were prepared just right. The tempeh here is so much better than when I prepare it at home, for some reason. {Probably because I’m not an awesome professionally trained chef.} And the sorbetto is always good—the strawberry tasted well, like fresh strawberries! It was a great place, as always, to take our out-of-town friend.

Slept in. Read a clever Matthew Hughes story about thieves and wizards from Fantasy & SciFi Mag, a disturbing Robert Reed sci-fi story from the Robots anthology, an enjoyable short story by Lucia Perillo (hey, I can give a different short story genre a chance), and then half of Paris, I Love You But You’re Bringing Me Down, by Rosecrans Baldwin. That one had me laughing out loud many times, a welcome diversion. Maybe it’s because I too was once that person working in a foreign country not being able to understand a damn thing anyone said for the first several weeks (I was in Madrid, he was in Paris. I was an au pair, he had an actual job—the comparison ends there).

This evening we managed to go out to dinner as a family to our favorite haunt with all the vegan options. Here’s a pic of my birthday dessert {Bonta Vegan Chocolate Sorbetto with Jem Chocolate’s warm Hazelnut Chocolate Sauce}. And when we got home, we had my favorite—carrot cake made by my step-daughter. It was incredible.
