Beggar's Banquet

Tonight was the PTA Family Picnic at Molly's school. There's a pretty high Indian population here in the area (about 20%) so there usually isn't a problem finding vegetarian options at local gatherings. Of course, I prefer Indian food over crumby veggie burgers but beggars can't be choosy.

There are two distinct types of veggie burgers. The fake meaty kind and the bready kind with chunks of veggies (pictured above). I really prefer the kind with the meaty texture but I was willing to take what I could get. Cheeburger Cheeburger used to have the meaty kind but switched over to the dark side which sucks. These seem to be the fallback just about everywhere now. The pasta and potato salads were pretty good at least! The potato salad was kind of like mash with mayo which sounds gross but really wasn't bad. Because of the texture, it seemed to require less mayo overall which is good. Nasty veggie burgers are bad enough but going to a function where the only vegetarian option is soggy sides is the absolute worst!

The watermelon they had for dessert was exceptionally good. They should be popping up at the farmers market in the next few weeks so I'm excited!!

Happy Friday!!!!
