Back to the topic at hand, or part two of two! At Sipz, Rick and I had our favorite caterpillar roll sushi as an appetizer lastnight:
Isn't it cute?! I was first to pick at it so I bit it's head off. Yum.
That little trail of red was hot sauce (I think sriracha) and the brown sauce on the caterpillar was teriyaki. Delicious. I fail with Japanese etiquette since I love putting pickled ginger on every roll before I eat it!
For my entree, I ordered tom kah soup, which is made with a gingery broth of coconut milk and lemongrass, cooked with various vegetables and tofu:
And Ricky ordered pho, made with a veggie broth which is made spicy or sweet depending on how much sriracha and hoisin you add into it. Cooked in it are "beef" slices and rice noodles:
I think warm and filling soup was perfect for that cold night (maybe it wasn't even cold...). We decided to pass up on dessert and just serve apple pie a la mode at home:
I sense delicious dessert!
I got the apple pie from Descanso, which is a little more than 45 minutes from where I live. My dad owns a house up there and I went with him and the rest of my family there a couple of days ago. Up there is a small store called Perkin's where they sell Julian apple pies. I didn't know they had a vegan apple pie (most likely accidental!) so when I found out, I had to buy one! As for the Tempt ice cream, we bought it at Whole Foods. =)
So for dessert, we simply heated up slices of the pie in the microwave for a bit, then we added the ice cream on top. I sprinkled mine with cinnamon:
I usually don't eat apple pie with ice cream but that night made a huge exception. Have you ever tried just a spoonful of Tempt vanilla bean ice cream? It's like vanilla pancakes and syrup! Horrible analogy but that's the first thought that came up. By the way, no, we did not (and do not!) get high, considering Tempt is made with hempmilk. Just saying. =)
Rick and I ate our dessert and watched Love Stinks, a romantic comedy of 1999. We laughed and poked fun at horrible relationship problems, which we do not have. How self-righteous of us.
Haha, happy first, babe. <3
