A Special Night

Tonight my co-workers and I had our holiday dinner at Blossoming Lotus, an all vegan restaurant located in NE Portland. Gifts were exchanged, food was enjoyed, and desserts were demolished. The food at Blossoming Lotus is always amazing, beautifully presented, and nourishing. Despite the list of specials, I went with my all time favorite, the Crispy Thai BBQ Salad:

Mt. Hood Salad 02December Photo Project 2012: Day #20

This picture was taken in very dim light, but what you see is a Mt. Hood sized plate filled with mixed greens, romaine, cabbage, carrots, cucumber, raisins, crispy rice sticks, fresh herbs, curry peanuts, coconut, Thai spiced barbecue soy curls, sweet ginger dressing and sesame seeds. Crazy delicious. I cleaned my plate with the exception of a few random scallion rings and a leaf of cilantro (I am a hater).

Dessert was a share-all affair. We ordered multiple items from the menu, put them in the middle of the table, and dug in. No rules!

I only got a photograph of the chocolate coconut cake, which was too bad because the best dessert was a mixed berry pie.

My belly is happy and full.

My evening was complete because I got to take home this lovely gift (click to see what was inside the package!!):

Many appreciative thanks to my incredible work family.

Goodnight :)

    • It was funny because my portion was largest of the bunch – and it was only a salad! By the way, my package of treats arrived safely this afternoon!!! Thank you SO much! I will write a post about it soon… Sadly, we ate all the chocolate cookie bark before I could take a photograph!! You are so sweet! :)
