For the love of veggies

We made a spontaneous trip over to a well-loved borough of the city because the husband really wanted to eat at Veggie Grill...for the second consecutive day in a weekend! I never ever dared to imagine that the day would come for him to crave vegan burgers and other tasty snazziness. As he chomped viciously on his veggie steak burger and buffalo "chickin" wings, he kept muttering, "This is so fascinating. It tastes like real meat." I was grinning from ear to ear while eating kale salad with tempeh because the husband was indubitably enjoying tofu. This is coming from the man who steers clear of anything tofu-related in our kitchen...even those tofu edamame nuggets that I think are rather appetizing. Anyhow, I daresay we've come a long way from Norms. So glad we now have a mutually favored eatery (though neither of us is vegan). So of course, we made an adventure out of the entire foray, especially because the sun has been gracing our parts with interminable sunshine, and honestly, because we had a relatively trying week between the two of us. I am so grateful for reconciliation and God's grace in our lives that refines us. I have a long way to go as his helper, but am thankful for lessons in loving the Lord more through loving the husband better. Hoping you had a grand weekend, dear friends!


  1. love all of these photos! im especially attracted to the third one from the top. beautiful!

  2. The veggie cheese burger actually tastes like a cheeseburger! The buffalo chicken wings actually tastes like buffalo chicken wings! It really is fascinating!

  3. These photos are so stunning and that food looks so amazingly delicious, yumm!

  4. i love your story about your husband's mutterings while eating. it made me smile. your pictures are so beautiful! I'd never thought of it before but your words are so true, the more love we show our husbands and the more love we show our Lord. Thanks for teaching me something new today :o)

  5. Oh my gosh, that is so impressive! I swear, I am convinced that my boyfriend never eats vegetables...though that may be because I eat most of his before he gets to it. ^^
    Lol, that's so funny. He sounds so fascinated by the imitation meat!
