Except for one Taco Bell-after-midnight disaster (I mean, the meat was already on the Mexican pizza, what could I do?), I've stayed on track with my new meat-conscious lifestyle.
There was a moment last week when, as I waited patiently for my Greek salad from Shartel Café (a great salad, really), I seriously considered knocking a little girl over and stealing her chicken fingers, but I resisted. Barely.
The great folks over at Prairie Thunder, however, have me back on track. Ordering my favorite veggie sandwich yesterday, the woman behind the counter told me about "Veggie Thursdays," when the outstanding bakery features veggie specials.
Just down the street, the newly opened Midtown Deli also has veggie sandwich options (and my sandwich was fantastic) and a salad bar. And Sage Café and Market has to-die-for macaroni and cheese.
Also, keep an eye out for 105degrees, slated to open in September in the new Classen Curve Development across the street from Pearl's Graveside. The café is bringing something new to the metro " raw food cuisine.
Whenever people mention raw food, I immediately think of the scene in "Notting Hill" when one of William's dates points to the boiled carrots and says they've been murdered. Poor little carrots. But, guilt pleasure movies or no, I'm excited to try the whole raw food restaurant concept.
