Boogaloo

May 20, 2011

I had a lunch date with BFF LB today, and when I asked her what she was in the mood for she said “a big fat veggie burger”.

Now she assumed I knew the best place to go for a veggie burger — and I do know of some great places –but none of them are near my work. So I did some online research and learned that a funky little place called Boogaloo had a house made veggie burger. Decision made.

I strangely was craving salmon today. I’ve recently been thinking about adding more fish into my diet but still don’t ever make it for myself. I decided to go with their spinach salad which came with grilled veggies and smoked salmon. I asked for their sherry vinaigrette instead of the ranch it came with.

SO MUCH SPINACH. Just how I like it:) The salad was absolutely delicious and the salmon was fresh and buttery. My only issue was that a few of the grilled eggplant pieces had a weird taste. Other than that this salad was pretty fantastic and I’d definitely get it again.

LB satisfied her craving for a veggie burger with a half-and-half: half spinach salad and half veggie burger.

Yes that is half of a burger. Huge! The burger came with avocado, tomato, sprouts, and a side of “volcano sauce”. According to LB the burger was a mixture of rice and veggies and didn’t have a ton of flavor. She also wished the volcano sauce was spicier. But it looks great to me — any restaurant that makes their own veggie burger is A-Okay in my book. Now I have to go back and try it myself!

And at the last minute I threw in an order of their “curried chickpea hummus with Jamaican flatbread”. I think because I was worried the salad would be small and not very filling without some carbs.

I only had a few pieces of this at lunch but ended up finishing it later in the afternoon. I knew it was a huge snack, but I couldn’t stop dipping the doughy pita into the lightly spiced dip…sooo good! It left me very full and I didn’t get hungry for dinner until 7:30pm which rarely happens. Another smoothie craving hit (a daily occurance lately) so I whipped up one of my “Very Berry Green Monsters” and topped it with a handful of Kashi Go Lean. Two whole wheat wraps rounded out the meal…because I have some weird addiction to eating wraps plain.

I am currently blogging from Barnes & Noble because our internet is out yet again. I can’t really rely on getting any computer work done at home anymore, but hopefully Charter will fix the problem quickly! I brought a little baggie of dark chocolate chips with me to snack on, but they are gone already:)

I’m gonna head home in a bit and hang out with my parents (they are having game night with friends) and probably rent a movie! I need a low key weekend because next weekend is gonna be a big one. Goodnight!

    WOW. That burger is gigantic! I can’t even imagine doubling that and being able to eat it! I am not usually a fork and knife kinda girl for a burger.. but I think if I had one that big, I just might have to use them!
