Last night, when I got home at 8:40 PM, Lora, Serenity and JD were busy cooking supper. I knew that they were going to make Portobello Mushroom burgers since Lora had informed me earlier in the evening that they were going to do that. What I did not expect was the vast quantity of side dishes that they, for reasons known only to them, decided to cook as well. I was also not expecting dinner to be at 10:00 PM :-P

As soon as I came in the door Lora proudly announced "We bought you beer" so I felt compelled to drink one of those, though I hadn't actually wanted one before that. Before dinner there was a big bowl of hummus with peppers and other stuff in it that was quite tasty and crackers to dip into it (I checked the label and they were not vegan but I ate them anyway, what's a little whey now and then anywhey?). I think there were 3 types of cheese, I didn't eat any cheese of course. There were the most delicious large stuffed mushrooms, I ate about 4 of those and by then could have left the table satisfied but that was just the beginning of our impromptu feast. There were two types of olives, kalamata and green ones stuffed with garlic.

For the actual sit down part of the feast there were baby potatoes, squash and zucchini, a big salad with all sorts of greens (Serenity helped with the chopping here), onions and snow peas and tomatoes and mystery bits, parsnip if I recall was in there somewhere. There was french bread and "Truffle Olive Oil" and balsamic vinegar to dip it in too. There were blackberries and strawberries for the salad as well. I had some of those on the side. There was wine of course. Oh, and the portobello mushrooms topped with sauteed shallots and avocados on a hamburger bun with Veganaise (mayo) and greens. There was tabouli and couscous too.

By the time I waddled off to bed I was truly stuffed to the gills. Everything was delicious, Lora admitted that she thinks JD is a better cook than her. He certainly is creative with whipping this sort of thing up, he's done it before for us and I was impressed then. Lora specializes more in the comfort food category than the gourmet stuff.

I'm pretty sure that, even though it was 99.999% vegan, I probably gained 5 pounds eating last night. Wonderful! As Serenity said while looking right at me "A meal fit for a fat king" 8-)
