What does a vegan in St. Louis do for her birthday? Well, she might eat lunch at Local Harvest Cafe, where she can order the vegan soup of the day (Creamy Roasted Vegetable) and the special sandwich which happens to be a vegan wrap.
Then she might be greeted after work with a vegan chocolate birthday cake from SweetArt!
But wait, there's more. (I do know how to get mileage out of a birthday.)
With my birthday falling on a Thursday, we planned to celebrate Friday night by going out, which also allowed MD to make his Thursday night mandolin class. But of course we were able to squeeze in a quick dinner Thursday at Atomic Cowboy, including margaritas and fries.
It's not officially my birthday until fries are involved.
Tonight for the continuing celebration, we'll hit Terrene for cocktails and Shangri-La for dinner, two of the vegan friendliest spots in town.
A very wonderful first vegan birthday indeed, thanks to my sweetie and birthday wishes from friends and family! I'll be back to recipes on Monday. Have a great weekend!
