delightful smorgasbord

We really wanted to swing by Rhapsody Cafe during our mini-stay in Montpelier because the food is so very good and is also the inspiration for many a healthy meal we cook up at home.  But one thing led to another and we found ourselves driving to a ski and skate mega-sale a few towns over and then I accidentally bought myself some ski equipment* so I can hang out with the Dude-ster on the slopes this winter and then we ended up in Burlington on empty stomachs.  So we stopped in at City Market and created this mess of delicious buffet food.  I can't remember exactly what everything was, but starting from the top left corner and going clockwise we have: home fries, southwestern tofu, dill carrots, spicy Thai peanut noodles, wheat berries and something, chickpea salad, and vegan dirty rice.  Delightful smorgasbord before hitting up the ferry back to New York State.

This is what I want for lunch, always.  I am compiling recipes and ideas to create a master list of one-bowl lunches and sides, so I can stop whining that there is nothing to make for lunch.  I'll share 'em as I go along, in case anyone is interested.

* I don't know how this happened.  One minute I was thinking about buying more books and yarn and hot chocolate, and the next minute I was walking around with my very own pair of used, beat-up, somewhat ugly skis and talking about flying down snowy, icy mountains for hours in the freezing cold.  What the?

  1. Skiing is so fun! You'll love it. Always looking for new ski-bums to go with me. I'm hoping Edie is big enough to learn this year.

  2. Your writing is so funny. Keep it up.
    Besides, how can you love Vermont and not try skiing?

  3. True, to love VT I must love all of it... skiing and everything. My very first ski experience was at Mt. Snow and it went okay, so we'll see how the season goes...

    Dee- Ah I love little skiing kids! They make it look so easy and effortless.

  4. Christine! You and Allie and the guys should come visit me in Brattleboro and we can go skiing. I've never really been skiing but I think it is in law that if you live in Vermont you must have a winter activity

  5. Yes Rachel! I'd love to visit Brattleboro... and as long as we're all beginners, the skiing sounds great :)
