40 Days Sans Meat: Trying New Things

Day 25:

I started off today with some tasty eggs and hash browns. Then I was off to the mall to work my part time job at Aldo, a European-inspired shoe store. Normally, I have a good story from one of my many encounters at the mall, but today was pretty boring. In fact, we were slow enough that my already short 4-hour shift went down to a 2-hour shift. I can’t complain there I guess.

For lunch, I had some left over Rosati’s veggie pizza. This place has the best thin crust pizza in Springfield. Well, I think so anyway. So if you are craving pizza, check out Rosati’s…Chicago style (well, not the thin crust obviously) pizza. Yummm.

For dinner, my boyfriend, his sister, and Craig and his wife and I went to a local place called Coyote Adobe. I was a little nervous about what I ordered, but it turned out to be the one thing everyone wanted to try at our table. Brent and I split shrimp tacos and a Caesar salad. The shrimp tacos were pretty tasty. They were tiny shrimp in horseradish coleslaw with sweet potato chips. I’ll have those again. And I heard that Taco Bell just introduced a shrimp taco…I guess I’ll have to try that out too.

Breakfast: Scrambled eggs and hash browns
Lunch: Leftover Rosati’s Veggie Pizza
Dinner: Shrimp Tacos/ Caesar Salad from Coyote Adobe
