I spent half the day at the Mall of America trying to update my wardrobe. I stopped for lunch at Tiger Sushi and had the best seaweed salad ever!

I went out to eat at Amazing Thailand tonight after seeing it on another Minneapolis vegan’s blog. I especially appreciated the tip to ask for the vegan menu.
My main dish was a peanut curry that was fine, but nothing I’d order again. I still want to try the Tom Yum and Tom Ka soups and the crispy noodles though, so I’ll be back.
I think I may have actually had an effect on my local co-op’s purchases. I buy about 3-4 boxes of the dark chocolate ones every time I go (maybe every 3-4 weeks). They used to have both milk chocolate and dark chocolate, but the last few times I went they’ve only had dark chocolate ones, and plenty of them.
Pumpkin Pie Brownie from PPK. I forgot to add chocolate chips, but it was still pretty fantastic.
Vegan orange chicken by Vegetarian Plus
I’ve had this and their black pepper steak. I liked them both pretty good. Neither will be a regular purchase since they’re not amazing and Rick doesn’t really like them, but they’re nice to have around for when I don’t feel like cooking.
Candied Lime Sweet Potatoes from Vegan Yum Yum.
This recipe did not work out for me. The sweet potatoes didn’t really get candied and I didn’t notice any of the flavors that much, so I wound up with some basic plain tasting sweet potatoes which were fine I guess, but nothing to bother making again. Maybe my slices were thinner or my potatoes were bigger so I should have doubled the sauce? (or tripled, or quadrupled…)
