Vacation re-cap

(I'll try to finish this today)

After yoga, we went to Early Girl Eatery
Also, on Wall St.

Caleb was camera shy
Katie was blurry. (she's still raving about southern breakfasts)

I had tofu scramble*

I also tried the vegan sausage. Yummy.

If you find yourself in Asheville, I really recommend Early Girl. The coffee was really good, the service was great, and the restaurant is full of art by local artists.

Dinner was at Rosetta's kitchen (not on Wall St.!)
I had the famous peanut butter tofu-it came with kale and mashed potatoes

The monkeys had nachoes- Rosetta's has vegan and non-vegan (but still veggie) versions.

You'll note the lack of lunch. Breakfast was too big every morning. Even with hiking and being touristy, we couldn't each lunch.

And the hiking? *sigh* I miss the hiking. We went along the Blur Ridge Parkway and hiked Mt. Pisgah.


After hiking we ate at the Asheville Pizza and Brewery-another one of the many vegan friendly restaurants.

We shared the hummus platter:

Katie had a William Shatner** (we were sitting at the Shatner table)

I had the mad mushroom sans cheese and the Shiva ( I should have tried the rocket girl instead)

We also went to the North Carolina Arboretum.


I can't wait to go back. There are so many other places I'd like to go, other mountains and trails*** I'd like to hike, and next time, I will definitely make the drive to Durham to see pants and auntnanny.

When I grow up, I'll open a vegan B&B just off of Merrimon Ave. I can walk or bike downtown and teach yoga at the studio down the street. You're all invited.

*The tofu scramble was a stir fry. One of the waitresses said the tofu was un-scrambleable. I would happily teach them. The stir fry was good-just not very breakfast-y

**a shatner is a quesadilla made with "nutthin' but cheese"

*** Big Butt Trail *snicker*
